Ancestor Info
Name: George Washington HughenRank: Private Company: I

George Washington Hughen was born March 1837 probably in Coweta County, Georgia, the son of James Hughen and Elizabeth Anthony. About 1860, he married Mary Elizabeth (called Martha) Meeks, the daughter of Britton Meeks and Mary Ann Couy. They had the two boys—William Washington, born in January 1861, and George Britton (aka Bud), born 27 October 1862. Apparently, Martha apparently died at the time Bud was born or shortly after. George was not at home at the time, for he had enlisted in the Army on 24 June 1862 in Montgomery County, Arkansas. He came home, where he arranged for his in-laws to care for his 2 small children. When he started back to his unit, George agreed to escort a young woman there also. Harriet Catherine (the daughter of Fielding Strawn and Nancy Ann Thomas) had married James H. Stovall less than a year earlier. James had been wounded and word was that there was no nursing care, so Harriet was going to him. James died from his wounds. When George got home from the War, Harriet and he were married on 12 July 1864 in Clark County, Arkansas. They had George’s two little boys for a while but the children spent most of their time down the road at their Meeks grandparents. Harriet and George had 6 children—Richard Taylor, Laura Florence, Wallace G. {aka Frank), John Wesley, Julia Easter, Charles Dickens Hicks--all born in Black Springs, Montgomery County, Arkansas. The family moved to Texas in the late 1890s or early 1900s. George died about 1907. On his way home one winter night, he fell into a ditch and passed out. They found him dead the next morning. Harriet died about 1913 in Frost, Navarro County, Texas. She was living with her daughter Laura Florence (Mrs. James Luther) Stockard at the time. As she lighted an oil lamp one evening, it exploded, and Harriet was severely burned. In the Frost Cemetery [Frost, Navarro County, Texas) in the Stockard Plot, there are stones for Laura and James, for one of their daughters, and for Harriet. There is also an unmarked mound, so old, you probably wouldn't notice if you weren't looking for it. It is believed to be the grave of George Washington Hughen. (George Washington Hughen is my 2nd great grand uncle.)
