DEATH OF GRANDPA HUGHES
(Jefferson Bee)

“Grandpa” Francis Hughes died last Wednesday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. P. E. C. Lally, at Denison. Mr. Hughes had been in rather poor health all winter and, with his wife, went to their daughters several weeks ago. His passing away takes one of our oldest settlers, and one of the best and biggest hearted men ever lived in Jefferson. Grandpa Hughes always had a happy smile and a pleasant greeting for everyone, continually cheerful whether in adversity of prosperity, funeral services were conducted in the Catholic Church in Denison, and the burial made at that place.
