- Biographical or historical data
- The Hughes family were residents of South Carolina. Simon P. Hughes (1844-1904) graduated from Newberry College (S.C.) in 1873 and attended Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (S.C.), 1873-1876. In 1876 he was ordained a minister and became pastor of Lutheran Chapel, Newberry, South Carolina, in 1879. Hughes moved to Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1881 to serve as pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Congregation. In 1891 Hughes resigned his Williamsport pastorate and moved to Red Hook, New York. The Hughes family returned to Williamsport, a few years later, where Hughes served as pastor of St. Luke's Congregation.
- Hughes married Elizabeth Hancock (b. 1853) of Kingston, Pennsylvania, in 1886, and they had two children: Elizabeth Denison Hughes (1888-1918), married to Colonel Hope, and Emily Hancock Hughes (b. 1893), married to Donald Taylor Hunter of Hampton, Virginia. Elizabeth Hancock Hughes was descended from the Denison family of Conneticut and John Howland (d. ca. 1670), a pilgram on the Mayflower. After Simon's death, Elizabeth Hughes relocated to Virginia Beach, Virginia.
