This is Matthew William HUGHES with his wife Sarah "Addie" McClain HUGHES and there daughter Ethel Bernice HUGHES.

Matthew William Hughes was born November 1890 and he died July 5, 1938. We believe this photo was taken around 1927. Matthew was also a veteran. He enlisted at Camp Oglethorpe, Georgia May 13, 1918. He recieved an Honorable Discharge December 11, 1919 from Camp Sevier, South Caralina. He was the son of William C. (Billy) and Perrilla (Copeland) HUGHES. Matthew was the father of two daughters, Ethel "Bernice", and Mary Wilma, Mary is my mother. Bernice passed away 26 years ago. Mary still lives in Noblesville, Indiana. Matthew has 11 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and five great great grandchildren. It is sad to think he never knew any of us since he passed when my mother was only three years old. That is why I am trying to keep his memory alive.
Matthew, as well as his parents, brother and sister all are all buried at Concord Cemetery.
My Grandmother was Sarah "Addie" McClain HUGHES. She was the daughter of John and Emma (Hampton) McCLAIN. She is buried at McDonald Cemetery.

This photo was taken at the Hughes farm in Hillham, Tennesse. Submitted by Karen Siebert, grand daughter of the Hughes
