THE END OF A BUSY LIFE Judge Edwin Hughes dies of Apoplexy After a Lingering Illness LEAVES A GOOD RECORD A Tribute to His Memory Written By a Long Time Acquaintance Edwin P. Hughes died at his residence in this city last Friday morning. About nine weeks ago he was stricken with apoplexy and gradually grew weaker until the end. He was one of our most highly respected citizens and many friends sincerely mourn his loss. He was born at Jackson, Ohio, July 31, 1842. His father was an eminent lawyer, member of the Ohio Legislature and served a term as Speaker of the House of Representatives. In 1845 the family moved to St. Paul and later to Hudson, Wis. Here Mr. Hughes studied law and was admitted to the Wisconsin bar in 1866. He enlisted in the 44th Wis. Vols. was a Corporal of Co. A of that regiment, and served during the last year of the war. In 1870 he married Cecilia A. Andrews of Hudson, Wis. Moving to Minnesota in 1876 he practiced law in Minneapolis and Little Falls, locating in Anoka in 1882, where he continued the practice of his profession until his death. Though never an office seeker, Judge Hughes was closely identified with official and civic life and always stood for the best interests of the community. When but sixteen years of age he taught school at St. Anthony, and more than one now prominent Minneapolitan received the rudiments of knowledge under Mr. Hughes' instruction. He was at one time superintendent of the schools at Hudson, city attorney and city judge of the same place, and for several years was district attorney of St. Croix County, Wis. He was city attorney for Anoka for three years, city justice for several years, and when the legislature established our municipal court in 1889 he was our first municipal judge. Judge Hughes was a man of honor, integrity and ability. He was of scholarly disposition, well informed in various fields of knowledge, deeply read in the law and many an attorney practicing here in the last thirty years has profited by his legal learning and professional advice which, when requested, he freely gave his fellow lawyers. The funeral was held at the family residence Sunday afternoon, Rev. Drewett officiating. Judge Hughes was a member of the local G.A.R. post and his comrades participated in the services. He is survived by his widow and his daughter, Mrs. Paul Giddings, and the following brothers and sisters: Eleazer Hughes, Boardman, Wis., C.E. and L.A. Hughes, St. Paul; Mrs. Emily Ackeley, Ellendale, S.D.; Mrs. Norman Phillips, Minneapolis; Mrs. Fanny Steele, Winnipeg, and Miss Elizabeth Hughes, St. Paul. The pallbearers were: L.A. Hughes, C.E. Hughes, St. Paul: Norman Phillips, Minneapolis; Geo. J. Giddings, Paul Giddings and Judge A.E. Giddings, Anoka
