I am looking for any information on a Jesse Hughes, married Sarah Herron, and their descendants. Both were born in Ohio and Jesse passed away in Bartholomew County, Indiana in 1863. Looking for anything ! Truly !
page 446-447 of the Biographical History of Kansas... Speaking of Robert Wilson Hughes... "A native of Ohio, Mr. Hughes was born October 14, 1828, a son of Jesse Hughes, who was also born in the Buckeye state and served his country in the war of 1812. He married Sallie Herron, whose birth occurred in Ohio, and upon a farm they began their domestic life there, but subsequently removed to Indiana, casting in their lot among its early settlers. They had fourteen children, namely: Mark, Martha, Lucinda, James, Jane, Mary, Martha, Isaac, Robert W., Jesse, John, Mansel, Missouri and Lizzie. The father was a wheelwright by trade, but during the greater part of his life carried on agricultural pursuits. For four years, he was a preacher in the New Light Church and his son Mark became a minister of the same denomination, but was turned out of the church because her refused to take pay for his services ! Politically, the father was a representative of the Whig party. His death occured in Bartholomew county, Indiana, in 1863. After the death of his first wife he was again married, and by the second union had a daughter, Margaret, who died in early childhood."
"The home of Mr. and Mrs Hughes (Robert Wilson Hughes, added) was blessed with twelve children: Hester, deceased; G.W.; John C., deceased; Josie, deceased; James W.; E.E.; Belle; Sallie, who has passed away; Oliver P Morton, deceased; Ulysses Grant; Susan F.; and WIlliam L. All of the living children have started out life on their own account, leaving the parents once more alone, - just as they began their married life."
I am descended from Jesse Hughes and Sarah "Sallie" Herron, through their son Robert Wilson Hughes.
Generally,.. I'm stumped !!!
Highest regards !
