This cemetery is located west about one fourth mile northwest of site of the old store at Bulltown. It is just north of Highway 260, and three and one half miles east of Highway 17. Legal description: on the Southeast (SE~) Quarter of the Southwest (sw-41) Quarter of Section 14, T6N, R2W

It is understood that this cemetery was named for the owner of the land years ago (Mr. Pete Vaughan) and his home, where the cemetery is located, was one of the first brick homes in this part of the county. It was at first a two story brick house but has been cut down to one story.
