  • Notes 
    • " Charles moved to America and married there" (Sarah Byrnes [b1915] audio - June 1988). Charles Hughes emigrated from Ireland to New York in July 1930 and married Rose Kirk in 1932. Rose's family home was 3 miles from Charles' in Umericam. Rose had emigrated a month before Charles but we have no record that they knew each other before leaving for Ireland. Their first child, Patrick was born in 1933 but survived for only 14 days. Daughter Mary R. was aged 4 in the 1940 census. Charles became a US citizen in June 1936.
