Classification: Query
Surnames: Faught, Highfield
William H. Faught was actually William Haughton Faught, son of Michael Faught and Mary Hifle (Highfield). His brother was named John Highfield Faught, thus the confusion. Michael and Mary were married in Kilkenny and may have been part of the Palatine community that settled in the Kilkenny/Tipperary area.

Michael and family were in Dublin in the 1850s. He was a shoemaker/bootmaker as were other Faughts. William married Rebecca Ann Walker in 1861 and they had a child, Margaret, in 1862. He left Ireland sometime before 1868 (John died in 1866). Don't know if he deserted his wife and daughter or whether they had died by then but he married my gggrandmother in New York City in 1869 (and deserted her less than 10 years later).

Does anyone have information on this branch of the Faughts?
