Hughes Family

My grandmother, Nonnie L. Hughes was a spinner in the cotton mills through out the south. Born in 1901 in McGee, Mississippi, died 1993 Lithia Springs, Georgia. She married Robert O. Ware who was a mill supervisor in 1920s. Her family worked the mills. I wonder if these Hughes are any relations to her. Anyone with knowledge please post. Thank you.
