Hughes Family Tree

 

 

Hughes Family Tree


I am related to the Hughes' via my grandmother, Lillian.   Her parents were Floyd Henderson Hughes and Rebecca Elizabeth Shepherd.   Lillian's family grew up in Harlan County, Kentucky. From there, Lillian moved north to Detroit, Michigan, while her sisters and brothers branched out to Indiana, Atlanta and Chicago.

This family is Appalachian firstly, with distant Scottish and Irish roots.

The information below comes to me from my mother (Dollie), my aunt Margie and my grandmother Lillian, as well as the following notes from listening to my grandmother recount her childhood to me.

If you have any information on the Hughes family name prior to 1880 that ties into the names below, please email me.
