John J, W, Pugh had three children by his 1st  wife that is never mentioned in the Pugh genealogy. Her name was Mary? Ellen Walston. The children were James Pugh, Molly Pugh and Walter Duggan b 01/05/1900  (raised by James Lewis Duggan after he married Ellen  September 23,1899.) Pugh left her in july or august of 1899. She was pregnant with my dad at the time. Ellen was an indian either Choctaw or Cherokee. I have a picture of her. She was my Grandmother. Walter was my dad. I'm just wondering if any Pughs out there have info on her.

the tree posted is a compilation of 2 trees set to me by cousins. My mother was Rhoda Pugh youngest daughter, she as well as several siblings were placed in an orphanage in Joplin Mo a few years after Rhodas death. I really have little info and have been wanting to fix this tree but just don't have any time. I am not familiar with your grandmother, I had heard there were Indians in the family but no info on who, I would love to find out more and a pic would be wonderful if you can share. I hope to get back to the tree in the not to distant future. thank you, Chris
