Erskine Hughes

A picture that I have of the Mt. Tabor School 1913-1914 in Morgan Co., AL has Erskine Hughes as the teacher. The picture includes his student, John Sparkman, former senator from AL.

The picture will be posted along with the sheet giving identification of those pictured. I hope to have this up by tomorrow.

If anyone has information on Erskine Hughes please contact me.

I had a great-uncle from Decatur, Alabama (Morgan Co.)named Felix Erskin Hughes. I believe this may be the same person in your website. Please contact me for more info.

He is a grandson of Richard Blanton Hughes also mentioned in your website.

You and I have spoken before. I am the granddaughter of James Martin Hughes. I believe that Richard Blanton Hughes is related to our Hughes. Richard Blanton bought land next to our William H. Hughes in Marshall 1854. He moved on to Morgan Co. about the same time that all of William's children moved to Morgan Co. He even lived in the same area and it appears that his son joined the same unit or regiment during the civil war as William's son, George. I think you sent me what you have and I will post it on my site if you do not mind.
