Vaughn family crest
When the Revolutionary War broke in 1776 John was 11 years old, approx. There were 5 men named JOHN VAUGHN that served from New Jersey; 1st John Vaughn served in the 1st N.J. Regiment; 2nd John served in the 1st Monmouth N.J. Regiment; 3rd John served as a private in Ogden's N.J. Regiment; 4th John served in Captain Nixon's Co. of Horsemen in N.J.; 5th John served in Samuel Forman's Regiment of N.J. Militia.; There were 2 SAMUEL VAUGHNs that served from N.J.; 1st Samuel served in Samuel Forman's Regiment of N.J. Militia; 2nd Samuel served As a private. in 1st Regiment of Monmouth N.J.; There were 4 WILLIAM VAUGHNs to serve from N.J.; 1st William served as a private in 3rd N.J. Regiment; 2nd William served as drummer in 2nd N.J. Battalion; 3rd William served as private in the 1st N.J. Regiment; 4th William served as private in Dayton's N.J. Regiment; There were 2 ROBERT VAUGHNs that served from N.J.; 1st Robert served in 1st Regiment of Monmouth N.J. Militia; 2nd Robert served in Samuel Forman's Regiment of N.J. Militia; There were 3 MICAJAH VAUGHNs that served from N.J.; 1st Micajah served in 1st Regiment of Monmouth N.J. Militia; 2nd Micajah served in Samuel Forman's Regiment of N.J. Militia; 3rd Micajah served in Walton's Co. of N.J. Troops.
It is very possible that some or all of these multiple names are in fact the same person serving in different positions at different points or times in the War. It is also very probable that some or all of these individuals are related to our John Vaughn, Sr. One of these men is likely John, Sr.'s Father. 
There is another significant Vaughn family line that originates from Connecticut that is significantly large enough to merit notice as well as a Vaughan (alternate spelling of the name) which appears to originate from Rhode Island.  I have not yet begun the 1850 census so do not believe these lines should be posted yet, but there is a possibility these lines could still be connected.  I am finding the two variants of the surname spelled interchangeably from generation to generation so either spelling could still be the same line.  As I proceed through the census, we may see some significant additions to the entire line.  So far, I have pulled the name from the 1790 to 1840 census, but it doesn't give much information yet.
