Title: Humphrey Hughes related to Blythe?
Description: Looking for info on Humphrey L. Hughes b. 1848 Tremeirchion, Flintshire, Wales d. 1895 and buried in Floyd, NY. He was living with my family Frank & Kittie (Perry) Clough in Frankfort in 1889 (Kittie's first husband was a John Hughes of Ilion no divorce or death record found). Kittie's niece Annabelle Palmer created a memorial book with 3 entries - her father, brother who died at age 16 & Humphrey. Humphrey never married but claimed to be a nephew of millionaire Thomas Blythe of California. The NY Times states that he spent considerable money to secure recognition as an heir to the Blythe estate. The Blythe court records were destroyed in the California earthquake. Humphrey's probate leaves his assets to a male named George Twill (doesn't seem to be related), the obituary does list an unamed sister living in Utica.
