TEXAS STATE HISTORICAL SURVEY COMMITTEE
TOWN OF HUGHES SPRINGS
"Founded by Reece Hughes (1811-1893), who settled in Texas, 1839. In 1841, he married Elizabeth Rose, daughter of Patriot William Pinckney Rose. Her dowry enabled him to start a great plantation.
"After her death in 1853, he wed her sister, Mrs. J. W. Scott. In 1847, Reece Hughes founded the town of Hughes Springs at a famous Chalybeate (iron salt-bearing) spring. It prospered for some years, becoming the site of a large boarding school and a favored place for church camp meetings, but later it declined.
"In 1878, Hughes descendants founded present Hughes Springs."
(1969)
There is only one row of graves.
There is a large marble covering over Elizabeth's grave, small markers identifying each grave, and one large monument with the names and dates of all family members buried there, except the infant, who has a tiny marker at the foot of the large family monument.
