Sue Vaught

Sue and her husband arrived in Logan County, Labor Day weekend – September 1969, by way of the Rock Island Railroad. Her husband James was a Lineman for the RR. They came to Booneville, trying to get closer to home, which was and still is in Perry County. They arrived with 4 daughters and after 2 years here we welcomed a son. They are all graduates of Magazine’s J. D. Leftwich High School.

When the McBrides, Bob and Dee moved back home to Logan County from California. Dee took over writing the Magazine News article that was published weekly in both the Booneville Democrat and the Paris Express. She did the article for many years and as she aged and her health was failing, Florene Foshee, Pat Corbitt, and Sue helped to keep the news going for her. When Dee passed away, 95 years young in 2009, Sue officially took over writing the Magazine News until December 2020, when her last article was published.

Then the COVID-19 virus came along it made life a bit difficult at times. Sue was approached about writing for The RattleCat and agreed to give it a try.

Sue has very old ties to Logan County. Her great-great grandparents were lifelong residents of Logan County, Henry and Lidy Jane Fox whose graves are located in Liberty Cemetery, near the Driggs Community.
