Re: Scallorns/Scallions - From Md to Tx
It sounds like Vaughton Toler had some type of childhood disease with extremely high fever that caused permanent brain damage. Possible Scarlet Fever, Measles, or Spinal Meningitis.
According to court documents in Haywood County, Tennessee, by 1850, George Washington Scallions and Margaret Martha Toler were divorced. No reason for the divorce was given. George kept the children and Margaret returned to her parents home.
