Edward R. Hughes, b. 1845 Wales
My g Grandfather Hughes became a naturalized US citizen in 1869. No recores show where in Wales he was born but I have an old phamphlet "LLandudno & Disitrict. Beautiful North Wales" 16 Monster Views In Colour Photography. Probably from the 1890's - no motor cars, women in long dresses, Marine Drive completed, streetcar. The family story is that he was from a prominent family and when he was young he had some difficulties in Wales so his family sent him to the US. He bought a farm in Venedocia, Van Wert Co., Ohio, USA and married Mary E. Evans of Delaware Co., Ohio who's father was from Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, Wales. Venedocia was an American Welsh colony founded to keep the Welsh ideals and culture alive. My grandmother, Harriet (1876) grew up speaking Welsh.
