E. H. VOUGHT, farmer, P. O. Union corner, Northumberland County, was bron in Mayberry Township, this county, July 8, 1822, a son of John and Hannah (METZ) VOUGHT, natives of New Jersey, and of German descent. His ancestors came from Germany and settled in Jersey, where they lived until their death. His father came to Montour County in the early part of the present century, and settled where James, his son, now lives. He bought about 1,000 acres of rough land in Mayberry Township, which land is all in the VOUGHT name yet. He lived and died on the place where he first located. He was the father of eight children, six of whom are yet living: Anna, Valentine, Elizabeth, Lena, E.H., and James. The father died in 1869, aged eighty-four years, and the mother in about 1875, aged eighty-eight years. Our subject was reared on the old homestead, and remained with his parents until twenty-two years of age, when he moved to where he now resides. He at once commenced to improve his place, which was all timber. He cleared nearly all of it, which required the labor of several years, and built a nice residence, good barn, and now has one of the best farms in Mayberry Township. He was maarried in 1841, to Louisa, daughter of Samuel GROUL, and by her had ten children, nine of whom are now living: Anna, Mary J.; Henrietta, wife of Adam PENSYL; Christian M.; Sariah E, wife of Arthur LONG; Margaret S., wife of Harvey HARTMAN, in Plymouth, Penn.; Edward B.; Josehp H.; Alonzo C. Mr. and Mrs. VOUGHT are members of the Lutheran Church. He has been justice of the peace, and held nearly all the township offices. In politics he is a Democrat.
