1. "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.
2. "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.
3. "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.
4. "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.
5. "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.
6. "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.
7. "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.
8. "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.

Next transcription from handwritten page written by a daughter of Mary
Prudence McHugh when she spoke with her mother in 1942 obtaining family

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.

10. "Memoirs Of Georgia," 1895, Volume II, Page 585. "James McHugh,
farmer, Rutledge, was born in Morgan County in 1825, and is the son of
Charles and Mary (Pritchell) McHugh. His grandfather, George McHugh, was
a native of Ireland, and came to America before the revolutionary war
and served with the patriots in that conflict. He first settled in
Virginia on coming here, then moved to South Carolina, where he remained
until his death. Charles, a son of George, was born in South Carolina,
came to Georgia in 1815, and settled among the Indians. He was a teacher
most of his life, and was employed in the early academies and colleges.
He was justice of the peace for over twenty-five years. His wife was the
daughter of Joshua Pritchell, one of the early residents of the state.
Mr. James McHugh was reared on the home farm and received his schooling
in the old-time log cabin and [studied, read?] by the aid of the pine
knot fireside. When he was seventeen years of age he left home and went
to Stone Mountain and began work for the Georgia Railroad, continuing
there until about ten years ago, or over thirty-eight years. When he
left home all of his possessions were a homespun sack of clothes, which
had been spun and woven by his mother, but his industry and energy
brought him success, and at the time of the breaking out of the war he
was in good financial circumstances. The war wrested from [him] the
larger part of his property, and he had to start over again. He now owns
about 1,500 acres of good land, a large part of which is in a good state
of cultivation. In 1849 he married Lynda Garner, daughter of Samuel
Garner. They have six children, four of whom are living; Baily,
Benjamin, Edward, and Mary. The mother was born and reared in Morgan
County. She is a member of the Methodist church, and Mr. McHugh has been
a Mason for twenty-five years."

NOTES:
........................................................................
The family cemetery is located on Double Bridge Road in Morgan County.
>From the McHugh Hill Church, go 1.2 miles northwest (away from Hard
Labor Creek). The cemetery is on the left, up a 5 or 6 foot embankment,
about 30 feet from the road. There are three markers in the small
cemetery. However, my grandmother remembers coming to Morgan County in
the 1920's for Bart McHugh's funeral. She says he was buried in this
cemetery. There is no headstone for Bart. However, there is a sunken
place next to Julia Brown's marker. This could possibly be Bart McHugh's
grave. The inscriptions follow:
