Genealogy of a Poinsett Family - page 58 / 84





58 / 84

Louisa Rebecca Vaughan - 30 (1877 -

) was born in Laramie, Wyoming Territory.

The baptismal record at St. John's on 8 Sep 1878 for the year-old Louise Rebecca shows the sponsors were Thomas and Christina Poinsett. Her father's name, in this Latin record, Johanna David Vaughan, has marks through it, probably because his marriage to Louisa Poinsett was not recognized in the Catholic church. Louisa was a secretary at North Side High School in 1902, becoming a clerk in 1903, a teacher in 1905, and librarian there in

1906. She married a Sheesky and had one son.

William T. Vaughan - 31 (1880 - 1932) entered the printing trade in 1902, after the death of his father, with Smith -Brooks Printing Co. He later became a Linotype operator and was with different printers and newspapers in Denver for many years. William lived on with his mother at 4203 Alcott for a few years. About 1919 William married Ruth S. (1887 - 1963), and his mother then moved to 630 Gilpin while William and his bride remained at 4203 Alcott. As noted above, William T. and Ruth S. are buried in Riverside Cemetery in the Denver Typographical Union plot.

Rosina Francis Vaughan - 32 (1887 - 1925) is listed in the Denver directory only once, in 1907 as a student living with mother Sarah Louisa and brother William T. at 4203 Alcott. In the 1910 census Rosina is age 23, a teacher, single, and living at this address. She married Harry Zimmerhackel; their children: Jane, Sally Lou, and Harry, Jr. Rosina is interred in Fairmount Cemetery, as noted above.

In the 1894 and 1896 directories Maurice Vaughan, auctioneer, is living with the Vaughans. I do not know how he was related to them. In the 1900 census a Lola F. Hord, age 18, is shown as a ward living with the Vaughans at 3930 Bert; also they have a boarder named Bertha Emery, age 16, and a visitor, Gena Holmes, age 17, at that time. With these three, the Vaughan parents and their five children, plus Thomas Poinsett, all at the same address, there was a compact set of eleven sharing the house.

3 - Mary Theresa Poinsett - 14 (1850 - 1930), the fifth child, was the first to be born after the family moved to Buffalo. A record at St. John's in Leopold lists the 8 Feb 1869 marriage of John Sailer - 109, age 23, son of George Joseph Sailer1 and Veronica Moller, and (Mary) Theresa (Theresa) Poinsett, age 18, daughter of Thomas G. Poinsett and Rosina Warl (Worrell). Witnesses were J. Bertens, the priest, and Rebecca Poinsett - 6. The sponsors for the baptism (20 Jan 1870) in Leopold of their child, Carol (Charles) Herman, were Carol Adam Sailer and Sarah Louisa Poinsett - 16.

The earliest association I found between John Seiler and the Poinsetts was the sale in 1868 (book of Trusts and Mortgages, pp. 43-44, courthouse, Jackson, MO) of a sawmill.


Sailer is variously spelled and in later generations came to be Seiler.
