Bludworth, Hughes, Stanley, Baker relatives in Texas

Surnames: Bludworth, Hughes, Stanley, Baker
Am looking for information regarding individuals with the surnames of Bludworth, Hughes, Stanley, and Baker who lived in the areas of Comanche, Throckmorton and Young County beginning in the late 1800's. My ggrandfather was James Madison Bludworth, & his wife, Lilly Hughes. They had 5 children, one of whom was my grandmother, Laura Daisy Bludworth, b. 1885, who married Cleveland H. Stanley, son of Marion M. Stanley, and Mary Baker. Daisy and Cleve had 7 children, one of whom was my father, Tant Billingsley (Ted) Stanley, b. 1909, in Elbert, Throckmorton, Texas. I was raised away from family, my father seldom spoke of his people and I have not had contact with any relatives. I think my ggrandfather Bludworth was a member or pastor with the Church of Christ, and my father was named after two members of the church. I am also interested in any information on Lilly Hughes, whose father was James A. Hughes, a veteran of the Civil War. I cannot seem to find any information on her, her parents or siblings. I think Lilly was born in 1865 in Bell County. I know nothing of the Stanleys, except that Marion was born in either Georgia or Alabama. Any information provided will be appreciated. I will be glad to share what little I have on any of the above mentioned people. Thank you.

The previous posting shows the following information about my father's first family. He was Weaver Holbert Eustace, and was divorced from Alvis Stanley, mother of Rita June Orwosky, and married at the time of his death to Mary Luz Romo. He and Mary were married June 10, 1954 in Seymour, TX.

Jones County, TX, Single at the time of his death

I am his oldest daughter, Evellyne Evangeline Eustace Austin, from his second marriage. BTW, Weaver's grave is actually in Stonewall County, Texas.

I am not related, but found this information in the Throckmorton County history book. It sounds like you may already have it.

Pg. 138:

"J.M. and Lillie (Hughes) Bludworth bought a farm near Elbert and moved from Brown County in 1905."

"The Bludworths...were members of the Church of Christ. They met for worship in the Prairie View schoolhouse."

Pgs. 174-175:

"James Madison and Lillie Hughes Bludworth came to Elbert in 1908."

"Grandad Bludworth [James Madison] was a gospel preacher. He baptized, performed wedding ceremonies, and preached funeral for many."

James Madison Bludworth and Lillie Hughes Bludworth had five children: Ollie Jennings, Mabel McDaniel, Daisy Stanley, Dee Bludworth and William Rufus Bludworth.

According to family histories submitted to the book, W.R. and Linnie Lilly Bludworth had three children.

One lives near Woodson in Throckmorton County; one lives in Midland with her son but was a long time resident of Woodson; the third was living nearby in Breckenridge a few years ago. If you give me an email address, I can provide you with the means to contact two of them.

Throckmorton County History book p. 198:

"My Grandfather, James Madison Bludworth, was born in Union City, Tennessee, 1849, came to Texas, settled in Brown County. He married Lilly Hughes, born in Bell County, 1865. Their children were Daisy, Mabel, Dee, William Rufus, and my mother, Nancy Ollie, born January 25, 1887. They moved to Throckmorton County around 1904 and bought 320 acres land. Grandfather was a lay Church of Christ preacer, and performed several marriage ceremonies. Grandmother was a practical nurse, helping nurse the sick in the community, sometimes assisting Doctor Berry with home deliveries. Grandfather died, 1935, Grandmother died 1936."

The last entry was submitted by Joel E. Jennings. He lived in Throckmorton and Young counties. He was born in 1917 and I do not know if he is still living. At the time the book was published in 1985, his children were living in Denton, Vernon and Wichita Falls. Their names are contained in the history book.

thank you for responding to my message. These Hughes/Dobbins/Cullins lines are driving me crazy. They are so interconnected and I am never quite sure if the info I have is correct. My Hughes line is as follows: Lillian Frances Hughes b. 1865 married James M. Bludworth in the area of Cross Plains, Texas in 1880. Her father was James Andrew Hughes, b. abt 1841 in Texas (married Fances Fowler Dobbins). He was the son of Taliaferro Swancy Hughes and Rhoda Dobbins. Taliaferro died about 1847 and Rhoda married his brother Urial Hughes. Does this info correspond with the J.E. Hughes line? Looking forward to hearing from you.
