Obituary of William J. Hughes, Shreveport, Louisiana.

Capt. William J. Hughes, who died at his home in Shreveport, La., on April 13, 1921, was born in Chester County, S. C., August 29, 1837. The family removed to Alabama in his early childhood, and thence to Louisiana just before the beginning of the War between the States. He enlisted in Company D, of the 9th Louisiana Regiment, and served gallantly as a soldier of the Confederacy. After the war he was married to Miss Mary Clark, of Bossier Parrish. He was a merchant and planter at Rocky Mount for a number of years, but removed to Shreveport in 1910 and made his home there permanently. He was laid to rest in the Rocky Mount cemetery. He was a fine type of citizen, and his passing was widely mourned.

[John T. Pearce, Commander General, Louisiana Division U. C. V.]
