Re: Brazos, Texas Hughs/Hughes/Williams Help!

I searched the 1900 Census to see if I could find a HUghes by any spelling, first name starting with J, born in LA, who might be your mystery man.

In Louisiana there were only two J. Hughes about the right age: James b. ca. 1897 and Jopp b. 1894. In Texas I found no one the right age, born in Louisiana, who could be Daisy's husband.

His name wasn't James. That leaves Jopp. I did say I thought the name looked like Jooper. This family was no longer in Bossier in 1910. I couldn't find them anywhere that year. They weren't there in 1920, either.

1900 Census Police Jury Ward, Bossier Parish, LA
William Hughes Head B M b. Feb 1870 age 30 married 10 yrs b. LA Father LA Mother LA Occu: Farmer
Lawrenca? Wife B F b. July 1875 age 24 married 10 yrs 4 children born 2 living b. LA Father LA Mother LA
Marrie Hughes Daughter B F b. Dec 1891 age 8 single b. LA Father LA Mother LA
Jopp Hughes Son B M b. Jan 1894 age 6 single b. LA Father LA Mother LA
George Martin Father B M b. Aug 1845 age 55 widower b. LA Father AL Mother AL

Ancestry has an all name index for 1930. I searhced for Daisy Hughes/Hughs b. ca. 1892. I couldn't find a Daisy/Daisie Hughs anywhere. Is it possible that she married another time?
