The Baugh Family of Logan County, Kentucky, continued_________
leave us, but we do not know best.
She has fought the battle bravely for 60 years and has won the prize, which is a home in the Golden City far beyond the skies. Let’s all strive to meet her in the “Sweet By and By.”
The public school was suspended last week on account of the death of Prof. G. R. Baugh’s mother. It is in session again this week.
Rev. Baines of Cleburne, was in our city last week and preached Mrs. Baugh’s funeral.
The obituary clipping does not identify the newspaper. The words “Graphic’s Correspondents” appear on the paper. Is this the name of a newspaper? It is interesting to note that no birth and death data appear in the obituary. Lucy Jane (Gillum) Baugh (Mrs. J. S. Baugh), was born on 8 Jan. 1838 in Rus- sellville, Logan Co., Ky., and died on 5 Apr. 1898 in Bono, Johnson Co., Tx. She was buried in Bono Cemetery.
Their son, George, lived in Hood County (ad- jacent to Johnson County) and taught school; his mother’s obituary raises a question where he was teaching at the time of Lucy’s death. He was about thirty-one when his mother died. This statement near the end of the obituary: “The public school was suspended last week on account of the death of Prof. G. R. Baugh’s mother. It is in session again this week.” confirms he was teaching somewhere. Since this was written under the community name of Bono, I wonder if he was teaching in Bono at the

time of her death.
Janet Baugh and Rochelle Hines found a J. A. Baugh in some Johnson County history books at the Cleburne Library. He was elected to a public office. This needs further research to determine if there is a family connection between J. A. Baugh and John S. Baugh.
Figures 4, 5. Tombstones of John S. (left) and Lucy J. Baugh. John’s inscription reads, “Farewell Father, There will be a glory day; We shall be together forever On the resuurection.” Lucy’s bears the inscription, “When my Savior doth appear, I’ll arise from sleeping here.”
Jan Baugh and Hines wonder if John S. and Lucy left Logan County after the death of his parents. Research has yet to produce any death records or cemetery where Abraham G. Baugh III and Rebecca Moore are interred. Based on our research, we think Abraham G. III died before 22 Oct. 1877,36 and his wife Rebecca would have died before that time as no provisions were made for his widow in the settle- ment. Janet Baugh,37 in collaboration with Rochelle Hines, provided the following information about John and Lucy’s children.38
Son Eugene “Gene” B. Baugh was born 25 Aug. 1857 in Logan County, Ky. He died 25 Jul. 194639
