The official web site of the Hughes-North Reunion.

Why don't you take 15 minutes or so and sit down with a nice

cup of tea and reminisce?

Coming, but not soon!

The Hughes-North Reunion Website needs an update.  A fresher look.

We will be working on this over the next winter and hopefully uploading to the server

in the late winter or early spring of 2024.

Stay tuned.








Uncle Dave sent the following letter to me.  Please read it and if you have any information that may help, get back to us and  we will forward it on.


I was wondering if there is a way to reach out to family members to ask if anyone has photos of Hazel Williams (or Hazel Williams Downing Alonso)?  I never met or even saw a photo of my grandmother.  I'm not sure what lead to the divorce between my grandparents but it resulted in a remarriage of my grandfather to a woman who was not liked by my dad or many of his siblings and the placement of most of them in foster care.  Only the two youngest siblings were placed with my great grandmother, Lydia Chase Downing (or Downey, depending on which census records you look at).

Remember, the reunion is held on the first Sunday of each August at Wescott Beach

 State Park.  Unless notified, this will always be the case.

2023 will be at Thompson Park in Watertown, NY.

Announcements are no longer mailed.  Email announcements are sent out instead.

This creates a huge savings to the reunion.




You don't choose your family.  They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. 




I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich.


Beautiful Embroidery from talented ladies!


Please take a look below in our "From the Past".

You will find some "old" and some "not so old" news clippings and

announcements that will bring back many memories!

It is our own little archive area!


Thank you!





Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.

Do You Know  These People?

Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
