Janet Daily Friday 15 Dec 2001
I am searching for information on Samuel R. HUGHES, b. May 25, 1816 possibly in Logan County, KY, d. abt. 1848 unknown. He was married November 17, 1836 in St Helena Parish, Louisiana to Jemima Oldham FLUKER, daughter of Robert W. FLUKER and Susan KENDRICK. Two children were born of this union, Samuel Fluker HUGHES and Jemima O. HUGHES. His wife died while the children were young and so, apparently, did he, although I can find no record of his death. It would seem that no one is researching the FLUKER family, and when I saw that there was a town named Fluker in Louisiana, I thought perhaps this would be a good place to go looking!
