From History of Maries Co, MO by Everett M. King, pg 513: James E. Hughes, only son of Stephen and Jane Hughes, married Sarah, daughter of Alvis Duncan. He lived his entire married life near the Miller County line in the Washington Schoolhouse vicinity, where he died about October 1, 1877, survived by his widow for many years. Of the six children born of this marriage the three yet living are: Mrs. J. D. James of Iberia; Mrs. Flora Crawford of Florida; and James E. Hughes Junior who owns the home place. The three who have passed away are: Ellen, second wife of B. F. Branson, Margaret A., first wife of Monroe Barnhart who left three children, Charles in Springfield, and Della and Elsie, thought to be in St. Louis, both are married, but their married names are not at hand. The third deceased child, Mary Ann, was born December 16, 1862, and died December 17, 1938. She married Bird T. Watkins on December 14, 1879 and spent her entire married life in the Hickory Point and Ulman vicinities in Miller County. Of the five children born of this marriage three died in infancy, the two surviving being Mrs. Stella Pemberton of Iberia, and Mrs. Clare Clark of Detroit.
