Subject: record lookup for Hughes family
Date: Thursday, May 15, 2003
Surnames: Hughes, Ryan
Looking for any information on Martin Hughes and his wife Bridget Ryan who lived in Guilford, Illinois in 1860-1880.
In 1860 census they are listed with 6 children ( Patrick 9, Martin 7, Timothy 5, Mary 3, Peter 2, and John 4/12). By the 1870 census Martin (father) is no longer with them because of death or whatever but there are 2 more children (Annie 8, and Michael 6). Then in 1880 I find Bridget alone but still in Guilford. I can find no records of births, deaths or military records or anything. What happened to all these children? If you have any information or ideas for where I might search it would be appreciated so much. Gayle
