Royce, My husbands Grandfather, Claud Clay
Hughes, came out of Liberty, Casey Co., Ky.
area. Claude was born Sept. 15, 1893 and
married Mary Emma Coffman Mar. 21, 1915.
They had four children. Two boys and two
girls. Divorced and Claude moved to
Cincinatti, Ohio where he died May 24,1952.
He was taken to Casey co. Ky. for burial.
Claude was the son of George W. Hughes, b.
1861 in unknown place and d.1940 in Casey Co.
Ky. and Mollie Crockett, b. 1867 in Unk.
place and d.,1959 in Casey Co. Ky. I have
only been able to learn tht Claude moved
into the Casey Co. as a young man with
his mother, Martha J. Hughes. No father is
in the picture. I am unable to ascertain
who his parents are.
In my search I have been able to interview
a recently deceased elder who was in her 90s
at the time. Nettie Hughes Cochran. She did
remember that George W. Hughes family had
little or no contact with the rest of the
Hughes who she beleived to have lived in the
Fentress county area of Tenn. I can give you
the names of George W. and Mollie's family.
Della Hughes,b.12/02/1888 m. James Coffman
Nettie Hughes, married Samuel Cochran
Claude Clay Hughes.
I also have managed to find the line of
Crocketts related to these people and can
give it if you think it is of interest.
Hope this is of some help. To contact
