Unfortunately, I have very little data. I have just started on this research journey. All I have is a few bits of anecdotal information.
And some information given by Ruby Stanfield Spitzer, a half-sister of Laura Hughes. Susan Bean Hughes had two children, Laura and George. John Hughes left the home precipitously and never returned. Susan later married Joseph McReynolds Stanfield. They had four children, Bess, William D., Ruby, and Joe (a girl - really.)
So we have nothing, right now, in terms of DOB or DOD for John Hughes or for Susan. Other members of my wifes family may know some of those dates. We are going to contact Ruby, who is still alive, to see if she has any additional information.
Whatever you have in terms of documentation is certainly more than we have. Would appreciate copies of anything you have that may be relevant and would be more than willing to reimburse you for any expenses.
