I'm having a hard time verifying the information you have. They aren't matching up to any known records in Virginia or Indiana. This is the closest I can come, but the kids' names are different. How sure are you that you're working with good records so far?
Daniel Holley came to Standing Stone about 1790, settling the Achatias Stevens place. Here he died between 1799 and 1804, his widow surviving him and occupying the place many years. Mrs. Holley was originally Sarah Westbrook. She was at Wyoming at the time of the battle, and on Jacob's plains during the great ice flood, 1784. The children of Daniel and Sarah Holley were Daniel, Richard, James, John, Elizabeth (Mrs. John Dyer), Benjamin and Diana.
Mrs. Ellen (Race) Vaughan, widow of Richard Vaughan settled near the mouth of Rummerfield creek in 1792, where she and her eldest son, John, died. Her other children were William, Phoebe (Mrs. William Eddy), Robert, Rhoda (Mrs. Daniel Martin), Anna (Mrs. Daniel Coolbaugh), Polly (Mrs. Walter Seaman), Justus, Richard, and Elias, who settled on Vaughan hill.
