I have the information you are looking for -- my apologies for not responding sooner, as I just recently learned my grandfather had a sister, Elizabeth.

John Majury's mother was Elizabeth A. Hughes (born about 1883). She was the daughter of Peter Hughes (about 1850 - about 1885) and Julia M. Keenan (about 1856 - 1921). They both immigrated from Ireland and lived in upstate NY.

Peter and Julia had six children -- Anna died young, Eugene (aka Owen) and James also died relatively young without marrying, I believe. Thomas (the oldest) was married and lived in MA. My grandfather was George Edward Hughes -- he had two children and five grandchildren (my siblings).

I have a picture of Julia, one of Elizabeth, and one of John's older sisters, Rita and Helen, as children. In addition, I have found two census records that confirm Elizabeth's husband was James Majury, not Peter as you noted in your original message. James was born about 1882 in Northern Ireland and indicated his parents were born in Scotland.

Hope this helps!
