Joel Hough was my great, great grandfather. Henry Clay was my great grandfather; Walter Eugene Hough was my grandfather. Edna Mae Hough Beck was Walter Eugene's sweet sister. Any child of Edna Mae's is my second cousin. We all came out of Needham Hough way back when.He lived in North Carolina, then South Carolina, then Louisiana, so I am told. I don't have the records handy, but if you subscribe to the Huff/Hough/Hoff Journal, there was a big article about us in one issue last year. I am sure that Max Huff will have it copied for you. If you can't subscribe, just buy that one issue.
The story of the three brothers named Hough has, to my knowledge, not been proven, but is family legend. If we can tie Needham to one of the Pennsylvania sons, we will have the missing link right back to England and maybe even to William the Conqueror and Flanders. We have pinned down the two Hough brothers from Pennsylvania who are involved. One of them is the father, but we don't know which one! I hope to dig into this more next year.
