Looking for Bitha Drucella Hughes Martin b. 1889 Forney, Tx poss, to William T. Hughes and Rachel Miller.

+2 votes
Hi. I've hit a brick wall with one of my great grandmothers. Her name was Bitha Drucella Hughes Martin (Martin = married name). She was born in Forney, Texas in 1889.
According to FamilySearch her parents names were William Theodore Hughes and Rachel Madie Jane Miller. But whomever added that to familysearch (it says FamilySearch added them) did not provide any citations or sources and I cannot find any.
If anyone is doing any research including the Hughes family of Forney Texas anywhere in that time frame, I'd appreciate a little help.

Thanks so much cousins.
