A wonderful biography is in the 1914-1976 History of Hendricks County, as well as a photograph of Hugh. Hugh was an accomplished weaver. One of his coverlets is reproduced as the cover liners of the history book. Hugh came to America as an indentured servant, worked off his servatude to a farmer to pay for his passage. He set up a very technical shop in Kentucky and was eventually able to hire help. Amy Harrison was one of the helpers. They married and had 11 children in Kentucky. In 1849 he sold the farm and moved to Indiana. He lived in New Winchester, Boone County (shortly), and finally Coatesville. He continued to weave amazing coverlets, mostly dark blue and white wool. Hugh and Amy were Quakers and belonged to the West Branch Friends Church.
