W. A, Hughes of Midland, Texas

Virgil Edward Minshew died Nov 4, 1953. His obit says he was survived by a sister who is only identified as Mrs. W. A. Hughes of Midland. Bad enough her first name isn't given, even worse neither was her husband's. I guess back then, the editors of the paper assumed everybody who ever read the obit would know who W. A. is, no matter what time in history that might be.

I am trying to figure out who W. A and his wife are, in the hopes that identifying her will give a clue as to whom her and Vigil's parents were.

I do know there was a William Alvey Hughes who died in Midland in 1976, but his wife's name was Mary Loraine Irby. I'm just wondering if there weren't any Walter or Wiley Hughes running around back in the '50's.

If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate hearing from you.
