Judy included these two photos with the Bibile submission. They are labelled Home of Elias Vaughan, PA. I assume them to be in the Wyalusing area and I am guessing that Ellias Vaughan was father of Rebecca Vaughan.
The following sent in by Judy Hinman March 2007
Yes, the assumption is correct the that Vaughan house is in the area and that it is Rebecca's parents.  It is Elias Vaughan Jr. (b. and d. Vaughan Hill) who was father of Rebecca Franklin Vaughan.  Her mother was Susannah Franklin Dodge (b. Terrytown).  I don't know if you want to correct but just in case. you can.

The following is Washington Hinman's obit.  He was husband of Rebecca Hinman who I have already sent.  3 of his brothers also went to Nebraska (John, Miner and Beach).

North Platte, NE, January 29, 1904 = Obit title -Death of Well-known pioneer

Washington M. Hinman Passes to the Beyond Wednesday Morning at the Age of Eighty-four

Washington M. Hinman, one of the pioneer residents of Lincoln Co [NE], and one of the frontiersmem who fifty years ago blazed the way for the civilization and settlement of the trans-Missouri country, died at his home two miles west of town early Wednesday moning.  Mr. Hinman had been in rather poor health, due to his advanced age, for some time, but it was not until Saturday that he was forced to remain in bed by reason of an attack of pneumonia, to which death was due.

The deceased was born at Wysox, PA, Sept. 14th, 1819 , and at the age of nineteen went to Wisconsin where he engaged in copper mining.  In 1854 when the California mining fever was still at its height he passed throught this section of Nebraska to the gold fields, where he remained for four years and then went to Oregon where he operated a sawmill the lumber district.  In 1884 or 1885 he came to old Ft. McPherson east of town where he remained for two years and then went to Oregon where he operated a sawmill in the lumber district. In 1864 or 1865 he came to old Ft. McPerson east of town where for a year or so he acted as Indian interpreter for the United Stated government.  At that place he married to a Miss Jeffrey [Virgina Hill per marriage records], who died about a year after the marriage [probably in childbirth]. He then moved to North Platte and later went to Pennsylvania, where in 1867 he was united in marriage to Miss Rebecca Vaughan.  Returning to North Platte with his bride, he remained here until 1972 where he removed to what is now Red Willow County, spending four years in that section and returning here in 176, where he has since resided.

Mr Hinman's life was a stenuous one, especially the thirty-fve years passed in the early-day mining camps in the early-day mining camps and lumber districts, and that he lived to such a ripe age in evidence that his constitution, to have with stood the condition to which he was subjected, must have been one of iron. He was a man of more that average intellectural ability, of strong convictions, pronounced opioions, and an execellent citizen.

Surviving him is a wife and three children - Vaughan and York Hinman and Mrs. George W. Eves.

The funeral was held from the Methodist chruch at two o'clock this afternoon in charge or the Masons, of which organigation he had long been a member.
