Sarah Ella Miles (1898 - ?) and John Vaughan (abt. 1882-?)Notes:
The birth of Sarah Ella Miles was registered in the
fourth quarter of 1898 in the Pontypridd Registration
JohnJohn was born about 1882
John Vaughan was married at least once before he married
Sarah Ella. On June 24, 1902 he married Jane Rees at the
