General Notes: Wife - Nancy J. Trail
1900 census gives her middle initial as J., which is the tip off to her identity. Her birth date is confusing because she lists her age as 60 (birth month September) in the 1900 census and 31 in the 1880 census . The truth is in between. She was born Nancy J. Trail in about June 1844, based upon her listing in the Smyth Co. census as age 6 on July 19, 1850 and age 15 on June 3, 1860. In 1870 she was living as a house servant in Rich Valley (Southside P.O.) and gave her age as 20. She grew up in the Seven Mile Ford area. Her daughter, Mollie, also, followed Nancy's practice of giving her children her surname. In 1900 her sons John Henry and Rush and all of Mollie's children were living with her in Maiden Springs.

According to a summary of the Cawdor Vaughan muniments held by the Carmarthenshire Archive Service (ref. code GB 0211 CAWDOR), John, inherited the vast Vaughan family estates of more than 50,000 acres upon the death of his distant cousin, Lady Anne Vaughan, daughter of the John Vaughan, 3rd Earl of Carbery in 1751. By this time, the original Golden Grove mansion had been destroyed by fire (1729). Between 1754 and 1757, John built a new Golden Grove mansion alongside the site of the old mansion.
MP for Carmarthenshire 1745-1754. His biography in "The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1715-1754", ed. R. Sedgwick, 1970, is as follows:

Vaughan was returned on the interest of the Golden Grove estate, which he inherited in 1751. Succeeding to his predecessor's office, he voted with the Government for the Hanoverians in 1746, when he was put down as Old Whig. Classed as a government supporter in the next Parliament, he did not stand again. He died 27 Jan. 1765.

General Notes: Husband - John Vaughan
According to a summary of the Cawdor Vaughan muniments held by the Carmarthenshire Archive Service (ref. code GB 0211 CAWDOR), it was John, and not his father Hugh, who built the first Golden Grove mansion between 1560 and 1565. The Welsh name, Gelli Aur is probably a corruption of Gelli Oer, the cold grove, as the original mansion lay low down in the valley facing north.
John served as an MP for Carmarthen 1558, 1571 and 1572. His biography in "The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1558-1603", ed. P.W. Hasler, 1981, is as follows:
Family and Education
b. by 1525, 1st s. of Hugh Vaughan of Kidwelly by 1st w. Jane, da. of Moris ab Owen of Bryn-y-Beirdd, Llandeilo, Carm. and Upton Castle, Pemb. m. Catherine, da. of Henry Morgan of Muddlescwm, 2s. Henry and Walter. 1da.; at least 6s. 5da. illegit.
Bailiff, Carmarthen in 1553, mayor 1554-5, 1563-4, alderman in 1555; receiver, duchy of Lancaster, Kidwelly 10 Mar. 1554-d.; j.p.q. Carm. 1559-d.; commr. subsidy 1560, piracy 1565; customer, Milford Haven, Pemb. 1560-d.; steward, Cilgerran, Pemb. 1560-d; sheriff, Carm. 1562-3; bailiff, coroner, escheator and town clerk, Kidwelly by 1572.
The Vaughans of Golden Grove (as they came to be known) were of old Powys stock, traditionally of base descent from the princes of Powys. The first to appear in South Wales was Vaughan's father, who made a fortunate marriage into the family of Sir Rhys ap Gruffydd of Dynevor then the most powerful man in Wales. On Rhys's attainder in 1531, Hugh Vaughan (then a groom of the chamber) was one of those appointed to collect the rents accruing to the Crown from the attained man's lands in the lordship of Kidwelly.
John Vaughan II added substantially to the lands his father had acquired in the commote of Is-Cennan first by securing a lease of the manor of Dryslwyn, north of the Towy, and then in 1564, by taking leases of Rhys ap Gruffydd's former lands south of the river. It was here that the family mansion of Golden Grove was built, and tradition makes John Vaughan the builder. However, in all contemporary documents, up to and including his will, he is described as 'of Carmarthen' (or, as in the pardon roll of 1554, 'late of Carmarthen'). On the other hand, his request to be buried in the parish church of Llanfihangel Aberbythych suggests at least an intention to settle in the parish. In 1568 and 1566 he made further acquisitions from the forfeited lands of Rhys ap Gruffydd in and around Llanelly, Pembrey, Llanstephen and St. Clears (east and west of Kidwelly) and in Carmarthen borough. He also accumulated offices both in the lordship of Kidwelly and in Carmarthen borough, where his mayoralty was the subject of a complimentary ode by a bard of Gwynedd, and was followed by return to Parliament for the Boroughs. He became an important figure in the shire, in influence second only to the family of Jones of Abermarlais, the chief beneficiaries by the attainder of their kinsman Rhys ap Gruffydd.
Vaughan had to put up a fight in the court of the duchy of Lancaster in 1570-1 for his duchy lands and offices, and his title was evidently upheld: the offices provided the excuse for a period of leave of absence from Parliament 11 June 1572 and the lands remained in the family. Browne Willis is wrong in giving Vaughan as the Member for Carmarthenshire in 1571 in his printed list, and may also be wrong in giving John Morgan as the Member for Carmarthen Boroughs in 1571. If so, it is at least possible that Vaughan sat for the Boroughs in that Parliament. The John Vaughan who was on two committees in 1571 was presumably John Vaughan I, but both John Vaughans were on the committee discussing Mary Stuart, 12 May 1572.
Vaughan died in 1574. The parliamentary vacancy was filled by his heir and executor Walter, who also succeeded his father in the mayoralty of Carmarthen, the receivership of Kidwelly, and, later, the shrievalty of Carmarthenshire. In his will, dated 6 Aug. 1568 and proved 19 June 1574, Vaughan bequeathed the Is-Cennan lands centring on Golden Grove to Walter Vaughan, but the outlying estates, including manors, parsonages, townships and house property in and near Carmarthen and Kidwelly and in south Pembrokeshire, to his other son Henry. Those in Llanelly district went to a cousin; and provision was made in cash and stock totalling about £100 for his many illegitimate children. Charitable bequests amounted to no more than ten shillings for the poor, and another £1 for municipal uses, at Carmarthen, and £2 and a black gown to the bishop for a funeral sermon.
