bought 108 acres of land in the Brazos Point
area, for $1,050 from R.H. Parvin. As the
Hudsons grew older, every one called them
"Uncle Wash" and "Aunt Fannie." They also

Charles T. and Callie Worley Hughes
Charles Theophus Hughes, the fourth
child of Theodore Lockhart and Mary Eliz-
abeth Parker Hughes, was born in the May's
Chapel Community in Llano County 19
Charley's mother died when he was eight
years old, and his father remarried within the
year. Charley left home at a very early age.
He spent some of his years hauling freight in
the Kerrville, Leakey, San Antonio, and San
Saba areas. He also spent several years as a
cowboy on ranches in the Hill Country of
Carolyn Lee (Callie) Worley, the fourth
child of George W.L. and Sarah A. Donham
Worley, was born in Hill County, near Blum,
19 August 1887.
In about 1906 Charlie went to Blum from
Llano with a train shipment of cows from his
brother-in-law of Llano to Mr. Rogers of
Blum. By tending the cows in shipment,
Charley and his saddle horse rode free of
charge. After he arrived at his destination,
Charley decided to stay and work for Mr.
Rogers, who was a neighbor of the George
One day Callie, who was only five feet two
inches tall, drove a horse that was hitched to
a sled on which was the Worley's water
barrell, to the spring on Mr. Roger's place.
Charley saw her and told the Rogers family
that he believed he would go help that little
girl fill her water barrel. He did go and help,
and found the little girl to be older than he
expected. They became acquainted, and he
courted her for about two years. They were
married 7 August 1907 in Blum by a Presby-
terian preacher, Mr. Bryant, who had been
Callie's school teacher.
Charley and Callie lived in Hill County
until 1923 during which time they had two
children, Josie Lee and George William. In
that year they moved to the rent house on the
farm of her parents, near Morgan in Bosque
County. Mr. Worley had rented out his farm
when he became ill. When Charley began
helping work the land, Mr. and Mrs. Worley
left their Morgan town house and returned
to the farm home.
26 March 1922, Callie's sister, Nellie Jane
Riddle, died in Arkansas leaving two sons,
Charley and Altus, and a small daughter,
Lillie. The children remained a while in
Arkansas with their Riddle grandparents
before coming to Morgan to the Hughes and
Worley homes. The boys spent various
periods of time with the Hughes family in the
years that followed, but Lillie became a
permanent member of the family to the
delight of all the family, especially Josie and
George. From then Mr. and Mrs. Hughes
were addressed as "Uncle Charley" and
"Aunt Callie" by all the young people of the
While the Hughes family lived on the
Worley farm, George had appendicitis, and
he and his dad rode the "Katy" train to Waco
to get to a hospital for an operation.
In 1924 the Hughes family lived on the
Warwick farm, not far from where the
Hughes farm is today. Their neighbors were
the Sam Harris, Pap Terry, Eugene Bateman,
and Lawrence B. Stanley families. All the
children attended school at Kimball.
While he lived with his family on the
Warwick farm, George was sick from June to
September with typhoid fever. He was treat-
ed by Dr. C.C. Cate of Morgan.
In 1926, the Hughes family moved back to
the Worley farm north of Morgan. In March
