Classification: Query
Surnames: Hugh, Callaghan/ Callahan, Stefan, Fanara, Davis, Antidorml, Burns
I am researching the Callaghan / Callahan family for my nephews. Their Greatgrandmother was Ruth Hugh as found in the census below with her family. I am wondering if this Isaac W. Hugh was a son or grandson of your Isaac Hugh b. in 1771. Their grandmother Ruth was the daughter of Julia who was single at the time of Ruth's birth.
Ruth Hugh married Vincent DePaul Callahan and had 13 children.
1900 Census, George, Fayette County PA:
Hugh, Isaac W., head, b. May 1845, age 55, Occ: day laborer
Ellen, wife, b. Oct. 1841, age 58
Julia A., daughter, b. Aug. 1876, age 23, single, bore 1 child still living
Alma L., daughter, b.Aprl 1878, age 22
Maggie, daughter, age, March 1891, age 9
Ruth A., granddaughter, b. Oct. 1898, age 1(Julia's daughter)
Falkenstein, Maud, border, age 23
Isaac and Ellen were married 26 yrs. Ellen bore two children both still living.
Everyone in the household with the exception of Ellen was born in Pa. Ellen was born in West Virginia.

Then later is the WWII Draft Registration of Vincent DePaul Callahan which contains the following information:
World War II Draft Registration:
Serial Number 3171, Vincent DePaul Callahan, resided at 212 N. Gallatin Uniontown, Fayette County, Pa. Mailing address, same.
Name of Person who will always know your address:
Ruth Alverda Callahan, wife
Employment: Fayette County Constable, Uniontown 2nd Ward, Uniontown, Pa
He was 5' 10" at 170 lbs. with grey eyes and brown hair.
/s/ V.D. Callahan

And finally, here it the obituary of Ruth Hugh Callahan:

Could you please let me know if this Isaac W. Hugh is one of the 10 sons of your Isaac?
