Obituary*"Obituary Notice: Departed this life at her residence in Williamson county, Tennessee, on the 10th of September, 1842, Mrs. Sarah Hughes, the amiable and exemplary consort of John Hughes, Esq., in the seventieth year of her age. This lady, venerable for her years and for her unexceptional conduct through life, as a mild and tender mother and a most affectionate and faithful wife, whose virtues were in every way worthy of imitation, was born in Albemarle county, State of Virginia; married her surviving husband in the year 1797, and migrated to Tennessee in 1828 with her husband and family. They had nine children, two of whom were dead at the time of her death. Her manners were characterized by candor and courtesy, and her heart ever open to impulses of benevolence and humanity, not only sympathetic with human misery and misfortune, but always alleviated such sufferings to the full extent of her means and power. "Without making a boastful parade of her piety and religious sentiments, she not only performed the duties of a vital christian, but embraced in the warmth of a noble heart and highly cultivated sensibilities the God-like sentiment of universal benevolence, the highest attribute of true Christianity. Charies Cassedy."
