Hi. I need more information about this W.H. Hughey, a nephew of William Rainey Hughey Sr. from Trenton, Texas back in 1893. This is a great clue, but I can't find anything more about him. His Uncle William is my gr gr grandfather who is my 35 year brick wall...

Here is the actual clue I found:

P.S. I have found a William Henry Hughey from Tennessee, that fits the years of birth/death, but don't know if he is the one.

Well, I recently found through 3 Census records that William Henry Hughey's father is a General Jackson "Jack" Hughey b. 1810 in South Carolina. He married  a Mary Ann Klein. They had several children. I find him in Family Search, but not really elsewhere. Jack is the first clue in 35 years that my brick wall gr gr grandfather has a brother. Now I want to find Jack's parents and more siblings. Any ideas how???

Thanks Chris!! I think he could very well be the one I am looking for. I sure wish I knew more about his birth in Georgia. That may be where my brick wall gr gr grandfather William Rainey Hughey Sr was raised. His obit says "he was born in Spartanburg Sc and raised in the SOUTH." That could be so many possible states. I am going to look more into Georgia and possibly Texas too.  Thanks again!
