Hughes and Ing Ancestors of Western Kentucky and Tennessee

I have been collecting information on branches of the Hughes and Ing families living in western Kentucky and Tennessee for over twenty five years. My father was a Hughes and my mother's maiden name was Ing. The information here came to me in a variety of ways. Early on I spoke with many older family members who are now gone. The information they provided is as accurate as their memories were at the time. I have also done a lot of research in libraries, state archives, and court houses. I have scanned hundreds of pages of microfilm and wandered through many old cemeteries. In recent years I have taken a lot of facts and information off the Internet, trusting the integrity of my fellow genealogists. If you are certain that any of the information on my web site is inaccurate please drop me an email. I am interested in hearing from distant cousins. I have a lot more names and dates in my database of associated individuals. Some of the surnames that figure prominantly in my family tree are: Alford, Altman, Bazzell, Crank, Doran, Edwards, Hackney, Lawrence, Lefever, Marsh, Penny/Penney, and Travis.
