Ref: 1. Dwayne A. Hughett's website:
This site has the birth and death dates of the above John R. Hughett incorrectly assigned to John David (J.D.) Hugh-
ett, b 16 Aug 1893 Limestone Co, Tex, s/o John Leander Lafayette Hughett (#215). That family was more dis-
tantly related to this Hughett family and were from Jefferson Co, Tenn, and moved to Grimes Co, Tex in the early
1890's. Additionally, this site confused the above John R. Hughett with John Hughett (#11142), b 15 Jan 1895
Tenn, d 1 May 1975 Kenton Co, Ky, who lived in Whitley and Harlan Co's, Ky.
