Gordonville, Texas is in Grayson County. The Hughes family is enumerated i the 1900 Grayson county census. The 1900 record provides month/year of birth, how many years married, how many children born and living of the marriage in addition to where they were born and where the parents of each person were born. Accuracy not guaranteed.

The census records are a paid subscription on or most major libraries carry the microfilm.

If you have not ordered death certificates they provide parents names or are supposed to.

I am not related. Happy Hunting to you! - Paula

Pleasant W Hughes was in Pct 6 in 1920 listed as P W. I did not find him for 1910 and 1900. He and Effie had three other known dtrs; Lena Bell, born appx 1901; Rose Lee born appx 1902 and Lydia Martha born appx 1909. All born in Texas.

Now that you have this information you can use ROOTSWEB to find transcribed records for these HUGHES. Most counties have birth indexes starting in 1926 which include the parents names through the 1949 records.

Depending on the county you will find cemetery records, marriages, etc. Fannin and Grayson counties have pretty good websites. Grayson county has lots of cemetery records.

Hughes, Elwyn Kent born 12-15-1928, Wilbarger Co
Parents: Mary Victoria Dockery - Newman C. Hughes

Birth Date: 12 Apr 1904

Hall, Billie Jean female 3-3-1931, Swisher Co
Parents: Sylvia Irene Hughes - Dan M. Hall

Beass, "male" 4-27-1926, Grayson
Lena Hughes - Sam Beass

Someone did not do a very good job of transcribing the above birth record.

1930 census has Lena REAST, age 29; husband Sam, age 34, born in Texas; son Gordon, age 12 and son Herbert 3 yr 11 mos. It could be REESE also. Lena married Sam when she was 20.
