Hugh served in the Confederate Army during the Civil war and was taken prisoner and held in a Yankee prison outside of St.Louis. He was offered his release if he would take the oath of Allegiance to the North... his brother John L. who was a doctor took the offer. Hugh refused saying he would fight again if released as he was fighting for what he thought was right. Later, as the war waned down he was very ill and was released to die. He walked home to Booneville, where he was ill for several months. All his property & live stock had been seized by the North.
He left Cooper County and moved to Greenville late in 1867 or early 1868.
