This profile is part of the Hughey Name Study.



David V. Hughey, B.A., B.S., M.Acc., M.S., Ph.D., was born in Henderson, Nevada in 1944 to Vaughn V. Hughey, a chemist with Basic Incorporated, and Janet R. Tabor, daughter of a Bohemian immigrant. He didn't grow up there as his dad and mom moved first to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and then finally to Tiffin, Seneca County, Ohio.

He developed his love of genealogy as a result of an 8th grade Ohio history project on family history. His dad's parents were deceased long before then, but his mom's grandparents helped him with some of the answers. They also kept some "skeletons hidden in the closet." His dad's family, though my dad was born and grew up in northern Michigan, was basically from eastern Kentucky. His maternal grandfather was a Bohemian, who had worked in many ways, ran a beer garden, and ran a grocery store. His maternal grandmother's family was from Bay City, Michigan (They immigrated there from Ontario in the 1880's.)

He earned a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from Kent State University. Afterwards, he started a master's in Anthropology at Southern Illinois--Carbondale, but transferred to the University of Pittsburgh to earn his doctorate with a specialty in Human Genetics. His studies there were interrupted by a stint with the US Army Medical Department in Okinawa during the Vietnam War;

He has taught at several colleges and universities in the US and finally finished up being College Dean and Professor at International College of the Cayman Islands on Grand Cayman. He has since earned bachelor's and master's degrees in Accounting, passed the CPA Exam in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2002, and recently became an IRS Enrolled Agent.

He worked as a corporate accountant in Findlay, Ohio, for two years and in Chehalis, Washington, for three more. He is currently a self-employed business owner.

His publications, in addition to his Ph.D. dissertation, include over 115 poems, five books reviews, an chapter in the book Anthropology on the Great Plains, and research notes.

He has been a member of the American Anthropological Association and American Accounting Association, Poets & Writers, and Washington State Tax Consultants. He was an associate member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Life as a Poet

His poem, "The Violet Moth," is part of the October 2015 issue of Art Ascent[1]

Hi again,

I sent you a message a couple of weeks ago on behalf of the Germany Project and have not yet heard back from you. I hope you are well!

If I don’t hear back from you by the end of April, I will assume you no longer wish to be a member of the Germany Project and I’ll go ahead and remove you from our member roster. You are, of course, welcome to rejoin at any time via our G2G sign-up post.

Best wishes,

Traci ~ Germany Project co-leader

The Germany Project Leaders are doing their semi-annual check-in with all project members and we want to verify that you’re still interested in being a member of the Project. Please respond by private message and let me know.

Are you currently working with one of our Sub-projects or Teams? If not, take a look at our main Project page for a full list. We recently launched a new Profile Improvement Team and are seeking new team members. Let me know if you’re interested.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thank you for help with my 2nd Great Grandfather David Bower's death information.
posted by [Living Valentine]
David, just as a point of information, the location "Green, Kentucky" links to the community of Green in Elliott County, Kentucky rather than to Green County, Kentucky as it should. The word "County" must appear in the location for proper linking to Green County. This is also a problem for locations on Ancestry and FamilySearch, creating misleading locations. Standard location suggestions (without the word "County") do not work for many counties in Kentucky. I'm not certain about other states. Thanks for all your help with profiles. - Bill

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi David,

I sent you a message a while ago on behalf of the England Project Leaders and have not heard back from you. I hope you are well.

One of the requirements of membership in the England Project is that you respond to the six-monthly check-ins.

I have assumed that you are no longer participating in the England Project and removed you from our list of members. You are, of course, most welcome to re-apply to join the project at any time by signing-up on the project’s G2G welcome post.

Thank you for all your work on the England Project!

Best wishes, Amy

Hi David,

We've not yet received a reply from you regarding the message we recently sent about the England Project. We hope you're okay! We realise that your interests may have moved on, however, and so of we don't hear from you by the end of December we'll presume that you wish to be removed from the Project. Of course, you'll be welcome to rejoin us at a later time if you wish :)

Regards, Amy, Lizzie & Joan.

Hi David,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.

Hi David, just wanted to share a little hint for you when adding that Pittsylvania sticker template to profiles. After you "save", just quickly click on "Categories", and if the Pittsylvania category is "red', you know there is a typo in the sticker template that you can go back in and edit. Otherwise the red category goes on a category error list. Cheers Margaret

Hi David

Thank you for adding your DNA Test to your profile on WikiTree. Getting Started with DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

DNA at WikiTree provides a visual way for you to find others who have tested and have the potential of having common ancestors. It normally takes 24 hours from adding a test, or adding a new ancestor, or ancestor’s descendant, for WikiTree to display your name and test results on your ancestors and their descendants’ profiles for potential cousins to compare results with. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches which relate to the particular branches you are researching.

Have fun!

Hi David,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader

Hello David

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for signing up for the Orphan Trail - is there anything that the team can do to help with this?

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Hi David: Thank you so very much for what you said and giving me that honor for the Cox Family. That is of my family as well and I made sure I had the documented findings before I acknowledged it. You are so very kind thank you.

It looks like we are rather my husband and you are kinfolks. I know that the creator of wikitree and my husband have the same grandparental relations.

David and Walter are 8th cousins (Confident)

David Hughey Ph.D. and Walter Pack Sr. are both descendants of James Stodghill

You have a very impressive biography and a very interesting genealogy. I'm very familiar with your Central Appalachian roots. The fact that you are just as proud of them as I am speaks volumes to your character. Big Billy sure has a lot of descendants in the Tug River Valley of Central Appalachia. Those Stacy's sure are good people.

Recently I found out through the relationship finder that we have a common ancestor. We are fifth cousins, twice removed. Your fourth great grandfather, Simon Stacy Jr, is my sixth great grandfather.

David, if you note on the Hockaday data, Warrick was born in the same location as the Tribe Mary Molly was suppose to be from. Now, I've researched this issue for years.. A Direct descendant. The name Tashapiathacho is listed on the Armstrong Rolls for Mary Molly in 1830 on Choctaw Land in Miss, she is listed as the Widow of!! her last name is not Tashapiathacho.. Now, I've considered, since Warrick and William were both protectors of the tribe, was Warricks Native Name Tashapiathacho.. And its possible that William sr. remarried a native woman and bore a son named Warrick. think about it..

Hi David,

I haven’t heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)

Hi David,

I hope you are well, sorry to post on your page but I know that you’ve requested to join both the England and Wales Projects, and I’m conscious you probably think we haven’t responded to you. I just wanted to check we have the right email for you, could you send me a PM with your email address so we can get you set up on the projects? I see all the great recognition work you do and you would be a valued member of both projects :-)


England Project, Wales Project

Hi David,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,
