Frank and Mary Hughes with Chuck Hughes and two unidentified people

Frank and Mary Hughes with Chuck Hughes and two unidentified people

Charles Francis "Chuck" Hughes along with his parents Frank and Mary Clark Hughes (at left) and two unidentified people.

The photo was taken in Mercer County about 1922 or 1923.

Charles Francis "Chuck" Hughes was born 16 Nov 1920 to Frank and Mary Clark Hughes. He never had a birth certificate.  

Frank Hughes worked at the American Tin Plant in Sharon in the 1920s. The family lived in Wheatland, Sharon and Farrell. Chuck attended school in each of the boroughs. By the late 1920s, Frank had left the family.

In 1933, Mary Clark Hughes died. Chuck was sent to the boys home in West Springfield, Erie County, PA, to live, and connections were lost with the rest of the family.

Chuck is now the head of four generations - -proud and strong - - but with no real roots.
