Genealogy of a Poinsett Family - page 57 / 84





57 / 84

John David's son, William T., and wife, Mary S., share a small marker in the same typographical union plot.

From 1883 and for several years beyond the Vaughans lived in Denver. (As noted above, Sarah's brother, Thomas Francis came to Denver in 1886, as did her older brother Charles and her mother in 1889, as well as sister Mary Theresa Seiler and family in 1890.) The Vaughans were at these addresses in Denver: 1883: 345 Lawrence; 1884: 787 Champa; 1885: 561 Champa; 1886: 809 Glenarm; 1887: 2901 Glenarm; 1888-89: 2819 Marion; 1890: 2041 Marion; 1891-94: 506 29th; 1895-96: 1330 Gray (changed to Wyandot in 1904); 1897-1901: 3930 Bert (changed to Vallejo in 1904). In 1902 (following husband John David's death) Sarah Louisa and brother Thomas Francis moved to 4203 Alcott. (This house still stands on the corner of Alcott and 42nd St. in the Highlands neighborhood.)

Sarah Louisa consistently is listed in the Denver directories and in the 1880 and the 1920 census as “Louisa S.”, and “Louisa Vaughann” appears on the grave monument; thus she preferred to be called by her middle name. Sarah Louisa died 11 May 1928 at 84 from cardiac failure. An obituary in the Denver Post for 13 May 1928 records that she was living at 630 Gilpin St. and a service was to be held at the chapel of Olinger's Mortuary. She was buried 14 May 1928 in Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, sect. 1, lot 59, blk. 87. (She appears to not have been a practicing Catholic in her second marriage, as she did not have a Catholic funeral and is not buried in a Catholic cemetery.) Her memorial is engraved on a large tombstone that is shared with her daughter, Rosina F. Zimmerhackel (1887 - 1925), son-in- law, Harry Zimmerhackel (1884 - 1940) and Elizabeth S. Zimmerhackel (1894 - 1940); I do not know who the latter person was; perhaps she was a sister of Harry.

The Sharples Genealogy by Karen Peterson, Denver directories, and Federal censuses give these detail about the Vaughan children:

Mary St. Clair Vaughan - 28 (1873 -

) (called Mamie in the census of 1880) was a

schoolteacher. She is listed as a teacher most years in the Denver directory from 1894 to 1901. She married Charles Piquette, born in CO, whose father was Canadian French and mother was French. In the census for 1910 they were living at 3444 Shoshone in the Highlands area of Denver; Charles (age 38) was an office clerk for a lumber company; Mary was 36; their children: John V. (age 7), M. Louise (6), Leone V. (5), Rosina C (2), Charles C.

and Clarissa C. (twins, age 10 mo.).

Eleanor Theresa Vaughan - 29 (1875 -

) is listed in the directory as a teacher from 1894

to 1905. She began as a kindergarten teacher but was employed at East Denver High School in later years. Eleanor married Joseph Maguire, who was born in MO of Irish parents. At the time of the 1910 census the Maguires were living at 4203 Alcott with mother Louisa S.; Joseph was the manager of an adjustment company; both Eleanor and Joseph were 33; their children: Joseph C. (age 3), Dorothy Owen (1 yr. 3 mo.) (both born in WV); the record shows they had had three children with two living. The Sharples Genealogy lists Eleanor Aandahl as one of their children; she may have been deceased by or was born after 1910.
