Looking for information on my GGfather John Hughes from Co. Westmeath, Ireland. Came via St. Lawrence River, Canada - was in Dragoons (Cavalry) at Camp Floyd, Utah. Around 1860's to 1880's had blacksmith shop in Dayton area and then in Pioche. Married Marinda Hartwell Burgess. Had three children Johnnie, Nellie and Mary Agnes. Marinda died in Carson City at 39 and is buried in old cemetery there in unmarked grave. If anyone runs across Marinda or John while researching, would appreciate you posting it. Thank you.
