Next transcription from handwritten page written by a daughter of Mary
Prudence McHugh when she spoke with her mother in 1942 obtaining family
history information--for informational sake and clarity, I am listing
the following references:  "Mama" is Mary Prudence McHugh born 1858.
"Papa" is Gustavius Leonidas Williams born 1855. "Grandma" is Elizabeth
Garner born 1828. "Grandpa" is James Perry McHugh born 1825 in Gwinnett
Co., GA "Mama was Mary Prudence McHugh--was born in Dorsey, GA., Morgan
County--of James Perry McHugh and Elizabeth Garner McHugh in the year
1858. Grandma's mother was Harriet Garner. (possibly the wife of Samuel
Garner?)  Her father died and her mother married Perdue.  She had 2 half
sisters, Adeline and Anne and 1 half brother Sidney Perdue. Billy Cox
married Betsy --her mother's sister--and they raised Grandma. (Grandma?)
was born in Morgan County. Grandpa was born in Gwinnett County. Papa
Gustavius Leonidus (Williams) was born in Walton County. Grandpa married
Grandma -- married at Billy Cox's house in Morgan County, (GA.) on a
plantation between Rutledge and Madison, GA. Cousin Vie Hansen was
Billie Cox's daughter and Grandma's first cousin. Billy Cox was
Grandma's Uncle. Mama had 5 brothers (Note: Unreadable, possibly a
nickname -- looks like Sanlk with an insert and then) Benj. Franklin,
Bartley, Grant, Charlie, Edw. Grandpa's mother was Mary Pritchett.
Grandpa's father was Charles McHugh.
End of transcription from handwritten source of 1942, daughters of Mary
Prudence McHugh, Williams  as they spoke to their mother.
7. "1860 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," 1860, Printed Tax Digest, Morgan
County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
James McHugh is listed as "James McCugh" and is shown as having 3
children between the ages of 6 and 18. He had two slaves valued at $900,
$1,300 in cash and $25 in personal property.
8. "1871 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1871, Printed
Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives.
The 1871 Morgan County Tax Digest lists James McHugh as having 3
children between the ages of 6 and 18 years. It shows he had 5 hands
employed between the ages of 12 and 65 years. In 1871, James had 534
acres of land in Morgan County valued at $2,670 (that comes to $5.00 per
acre). The value of all his other property was $475.
9. "1878 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1878, Printed
Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
The 1878 Morgan County Tax Digest shows James as owning 828 acres.
10. "1883 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1883,
Printed Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
The 1883 Tax Digest shows James owning 964 acres and employing 9 hands.
11. "1885 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1885,
Printed Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
The 1885 Tax Digest lists James S. McHugh. This is the first time we saw
his middle initial in any records. This Digest shows that James owned
1,142 acres valued at $4,568 (that's only $4.00 an acre). The 1885
Digest also lists a company by the name of McHugh & Dickson. The company
owned something worth $125 in town, although we don't know which town.
It may be Rutledge or Madison. In addition, the 1885 Digest lists
William McHugh as owning 100 acres and Bart owning 60 acres. Bart is
listed in other records as Barton McHugh.
12. "1890 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1890,
Printed Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
The 1890 Morgan County Tax Digest lists James McHugh as owning 1142
acres valued at $5,568 (that's $4.88 per acre) and $417 in horses and
mules. The 1890 Digest also indicated that James owned the Iron Works
Foundaries and the company owned $380 worth of property. William McHugh
was listed owning 100 acres and Barton owning 68 acres. Benjamin McHugh
and Edward M. McHugh were listed, but owned no property.
13. "1895 Morgan County, GA Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1895,
Printed Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
We finally established from a list of Morgan County deaths that James
McHugh died on February 7, 1896. This death date is inscribed on his
grave marker. However, the 1895 Morgan County Tax Digest shows the
"James McHugh Estate" as owning 1,142 acres. It's possible he may have
actually died in 1895.
14. "1897 Morgan County, Ga Tax Digest," Morgan County, GA, 1897,
Printed Tax Digest, Morgan County, GA Archives, Madison, GA.
The 1897 Tax Digest lists the James McHugh Estate as owning 732 acres,
Mrs. Elizabeth McHugh owning 210 acres, William McHugh owning 60 acres
and Columbus McHugh owning 110 acres. B. F. McHugh and Eddie McHugh were
listed in the Digest, but owned no acreage.
15. "Certificate of Marriage," 24-November-1849, Madison, Morgan County,
GA, Printed Marriage Certificate Book, Morgan County, GA Courthouse,
Madison, GA.
"Georgia Morgan County to any Minister of the Gospel, Judge, Justice of
the Inferior Court, or Justice of the Peace, you are hereby authorized

according to the constitution and Laws of this state and for so doing

Matrimony by me this 24th of November 1849. Dawson B. Vance J. P."
"Recorded the third day of December 1849. F. M. Arnold C C A"
