    • Note:
      L.D. Hughes was named after Loinzo Dow, an eccentric traveling minister. He
      began as a Methodist but was never officially accepted by them. Born in 1777
      in CT, died in Washington DC in 1837, many Americans named sons after him.
      No doubt, Spottswood and Paulina heard him speak at one of his many camp
      meetings in Va or WV. and named their first son after him.
      His life is described in "Holstom Methodism" by R.N.Price, published in 1908.

      On 6 FEB 1915, L.D. Hughes sold the land he received from his father,
      Spottswood, to his son Galley. This deed is recorded in Deed Book 139,
      page 54 of the Cabell Co records. The conditions of the sale were such
      that L.D. was to remain on the property for the rest of his life and possession
      of the property went to Galley upon the death of L.D.
