Funeral Card Friday--George Henry Hughes


I do not have too many funeral cards for my family....only a handful. George Henry Hughes is my paternal grandfather, affectionately known as Pop Pop.

George was born on March 19, 1898 in Hartlepool, Durham County, England. He was the son of John George Hughes and Elizabeth Ferdinande Olesen. In 1906, the Hughes family immigrated arriving at the port of New York, then taking a train to the southside area of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

George married Sarah Margaret VanGilder on June 05, 1920 in Fairmont, Marion County, West Virginia. The Hughes' had three children.

In 1963 George retired from the American Bridge Company and he and Sarah moved from Bellevue, Pennsylvania to St. Petersburg, Florida.

George died in South Pasadena, Pinellas County, Florida on June 23, 1973. He was cremated and the ashes were transported to his resting place in Allegheny County Memorial Park, Allison Park, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
