NOTE: I did not select this date for any particular reason. However, it is interesting to note that the oldest record (being that of Daniel Vaught), is directly related to that German family I found records for at the Family History Library. He is the grandson of Johann Everhard Martin & Jacobina Elizabeth Wunderlich. You can find my post that talks about those German records here FAMILY HISTORY LIBRARY TRIP - Day 2 - A Red Letter Day! I have a LOT more research to do on this part of the family.
