Shirley: I am C Hughes from the web site you joined looking for Elisha Caudill Hughes father. Even though they aren't part of our line I found Elisha Hughes Born Feb 1856, married to the right woman in the 1900 Census in Kentucky.
Next I found his birth record in Kentucky birth records. Born 10 Feb 1856 (it said he was a female-error) to Emaline Hughes. No father named. Then I found Elisha Caudill born about 1898 in Kentucky with Lydia Caudill. She was then married to the Caudill with more children.Is this your line? You didn't need to leave our site even if we aren't related.
