I've got dates on the Hughes bunch if you want that info.  George S. Hughes
11-18-1838 to 1-25-1932.  You have all the children, here are their dates
(if you want them):
Willie Edna Hughes Roper  9-20-1876 to 9-4-1971 (buried Duncan Ok) *I seem
to always list my own ancestor first*****
Edmond Albert 11-1-1867 to 12-18-1945 (buried Newlin Tx) m. Mary Jane Moore
George Luther 5-1-1869 to 8-9-1946 (never married)
John L 1-15-1871 to 4-11-1892 (buried with his parents)
Malissie Frances 5-29-1873 to 8-8-1957 (I have "Malissie" from a family
history, unknown author) buried Duncan Ok   m. Frank Martin
Mary Emily 2-12-1884 to 12-19-1951m John Warren
George, Margarette & family relocated to Giles Co Tn , I think abt 1886. 
They were in Granbury Tx (Hood Co) 1887, Springtown Tx (prob Parker County,
n of Ft Worth Tx) in 1892, after that mostly in Wise County, but apparently
dropped down into Montague County (near Bowie) in the 1890s, then back up
to Wise County.  
Within the last year I received a query/answered a query? (I can't
remember) from a Dutton researcher who had Duttons (NOT FROM AL) who
migrated with the Hughes. They did not know the familial connection with
Hughes.  I responded and passed along Yours and Katie Parks email
addresses.  I have been searching through my archived messages and don't
know who that was from.  Any idea?  Did you ever hear from them?  Have you
talked to Katie Parks lately?  I haven't.
