Joan's Family Tree

I certainly hope that this not only helps some of you out there, I hope that some relatives stop by and identify themselves. The fact that Jesse named a son Christopher makes me wonder if my George C. Hughes middle name was Christopher. I cannot find it written anywhere and he listed himself as George C. on his marriage license. We are still looking for the document that proves conclusively that Jesse is the son of William H. Hughes and Jane (Unknown) and the grandson of George and Rhoda.
