* The Hughes of Fort Wayne, IN*

Updated January 6, 2001

This portion of the Hughes clan traces back to Illinois and Indiana in the latter part of the 19th century. We know of a "Judge" Hughes from the middle of the 19th century, but don't know if that was his name or profession.

"Judge" Hughes' grandchildren settled around Fort Wayne, IN. and Ferguson, MO. Clarence Orville Hughes, born in 1890 was a medical doctor in Ferguson, MO. and had sons, grandsons, and greatgrandsons that were also doctors.

Arthur Melvin Hughes settled in Fort Wayne, IN. and had four children, three girls and a boy. Robert James Hughes ran Poe Roofing for thirty years and had six children. All but two have scattered throughout the US. Bob Hughes and Jane remain in the Fort Wayne area.

Any help filling in the blanks in our forebears is appreciated. Richard Ruff, husband of JoAnn Hughes, eldest daughter of Robert James Hughes is doing the research. Please contact him at his e-mail address. I would be happy to share my research which has primarily been gained through personal interviews.
