Hughes Photo

Hughes Photo.jpg

This picture is from a Hughes researcher who would like help with the identification of the pair. The information that came with it is as follows:

The man in the photo is unknown. It is from a collection of a Hughes family whose father was named William Witsol Hughes. His daughter says that the only family she remembers him having is a sister called Meesie.
W.W. as he was called was born in 1891, he died in 1977 at the age of 86 years.

He was born in Polk County TN, he died in Dalton GA and is buried in the Deep Springs Baptist Church Cemetery, Dalton GA

An expert on period clothing says the picture could have been made between 1904 and 1918, however, due to the length of the skirt it was probably 1918.
W.W. Hughes would have been 27 years old in 1918--this very well could be him.

I am leaving comments "open" for a time on this page hoping someone will be able to identify.
