John William Hughes

Born June 16, ~~~~~ to Joseph Hughes and Sarah Hale Hughes.

There is some question as to John's actual birth year. On the 1860 census he is listed as two years old, making his birth year around 1858. On his tombstone the year is listed as 1856, which would have made him four in 1860; the same age as a brother. His death certificate lists his birth year as 1855 and that information was provided by the same individual that filled in the family bible which lists his birth year as 1856.

Siblings: Katherine 'Katie' Hughes Davis (J. C. B.); Rebecca Ann Hughes Works (Jefferson Davis); Cynthia 'Cynthie' T. Hughes Morgan (Ben) Fogle (Jasper); Nancy Ellen 'Nannie' Hughes Works (James Crawford); Silas P. Hughes; Augustus 'Gus' Hughes, Mary Frances 'Frankie' Hughes Ireland (Asa William); George Samuel Hughes; and Granville Hughes.

John Hughes married Nancy Jane Morgan Hughes (Morgan) August 4, 1881 at the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Owen County, KY. Daniel Cobb officiated at the services. John and Nancy Jane had six children and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Children: Elzie Hughes (1883-1886); Dannie Hughes (1888-1968); Gusty Hughes (1889[91]-1911); Hallie Hughes Kenney (1894-1987); Zora Hughes Cook (1900-1971); Zelma Hughes Kennedy (1900-79).

John, a farmer, died January 29, 1934 of pneumonia.

John William Hughes was my great-grandfather.
