May 2, 1894 Hillsboro Reflector -DIED
At her residence on Covington Street, Hillsboro, Texas, April 27th, 1894, after nine weeks illness, Mrs. Fannie Hughes, aged 55 years and 30 days.
This single announcement will bring sadness to the hearts of many of her acquaintances, especially to friends and kindred living in England. Fannie Mairs-her maiden name-was born in England, March 29th, 1839. In June 1867, she was united in marriage to John Hughes and became the Mother of four children, three daughters and one son, all of whom survive her. She came to Hillsboro in 1886, where she has resided continuously, beloved by all who knew her. During her illness she had every care and attention which medical skill and kind friends could give her, but it was not in human power to arrest the disease which took her from among us. Mrs. Hughes made a confession of her faith and joined the congregational church in Chelsea, London, in the year 1859, and at the time of her death was a communicant in the Presbyterian Church at Hillsboro.
The funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church, conducted by Rev. C. R. Dudley, after which a large concourse of friends followed to the cemetery where they tenderly laid her to rest, to await the sound of the trumpet of that great day when the bodies of all who sleep in Jesus shall awake to a blessed resurrection of life.
