Nancy Ann Vaughn was born in November of 1858 in Bunker Hill, Ashtabula, Ohio. The Bunker Hill in Ashtabula is a road near the city of Ashtabula as far as I can see. When she was about one during the 1860 Census they lived across the state line in Elk Twp., Erie, Pennsylvania.

Her parents are Daniel Vaughn and Sylvia Green.

Her brothers and sister are: Charles, Daniel J. and Rosetta M. Vaughn.

In 1870 she lived in Grant Twp., Huron, Michigan.

Nancy married Lloyd D. Philips on August 3, 1873 in Grant, Huron, Michigan.

Their children are: William Augustus, Charles Edward, Sarah Ellen and Lucy B. Philips.

In 1880 They lived in Unionville, Columbia Twp., Tuscola, Michigan.

Lloyd died of an accidental gunshot wound on May 14, 1881 in Unionville, Michigan. Later she lost her two boys William and Charles in a house fire.

Nancy married Nelson G. Hunn January 14, 1882 in Sebewaing, Huron, Michigan.

Their children are: Carrie M., Roxsina, Frederick Wesley, Pearl May, Harry and Hazel Maude Hunn.

Nancy was a midwife all over Michigan.

In the 1900 Census they lived in Star Twp., Antrim, Michigan.

Nelson G. Hunn died in July 21,1908 in Traverse City, Grand Traverse, Michigan. He is buried in Vanderbilt, Otsego, Michigan.

1910 Federal Census says Hunn, Nancy - 13 children, 6 living - so we have some missing children here.

She married third, Edward N. Bashaw on July 16, 1914 at Pellston, Emmet, Michigan.

They are on the 1920 Census in East Jordan, Charlevoix, Michigan.

Nancy died January 9, 1924 in East Jordan, Charlevoix, Michigan. She is buried next to Edward Bashaw in Sunset Hills Cemetery, East Jordan, Michigan in an unmarked grave.

Nancy had a rough life to be sure, but she kept going.
