Hi.I've just obtained the family bible of Mr. & Mrs. J. J. Hughson (mid 1800's) of St Joseph, Michigan, passed down to my wife through her family from eldest child to eldest child.
I don't have much yet, but here's something about part of the Michigan branch of the Hughson family.
J. J. Hughson (December 14, 1833 - May 26, 1899) married Martha Miller (April 9, 1839 - July 3, 1907) on January 27, 1858.They had four children: Eva, Clara, Cora and Harry. J.J.'s mother was Hannah Hughson (maiden name unknown yet) who passed away in Parma, MI.Martha's mother was Catherine Bare(October 4, 1810- September 13, 1867)
Eva Hughson (February 20, 1859 - November 13, 1940) m. Hiram Wilson (d. July 3, 1924) on November 10, 1885. They had one daughter; Frances C. Wilson aka Fannie Clarabelle. Eva is my wife's ancestor.
Clara Hughson (March 16, 1862 - August 26, 1880) died at age 18, apparently unmarried.
Cora Hughson (March 14, 1864 - November 12, 1931) m. Ellwood Brown on November 10, 1885.
Harry Grant Hughson (December 18, 1866 - November 23, 1927) married Irene Hawley, who died, and subsequently married Viola Fisher. The family bible doesn't mention any children.
I can provide high-resolution scans of appropriate pages from the bible to anyone who is interested. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd appreciate any additional info about families touching ours at any point.
