According to the 1850 Census from the 18th Ward of Baltimore, Ann Hughes was living with Emily(Mills Hughes) and Christian Conradt at that time. We assume Ann is Emily's mother. There is little information on her.

Ann Hughes was born 1771 in Maryland. Emily was "of Hagerstown" which is in western Maryland. There was a very large Hughes family in western Maryland in the sixteenth century. It is very likely that Emily is of that family. So far her husband nor parents has not been determined.

The Frederick Town Herald issue Dec 27, 1823 reported that "Miss Emily Hughes of Hagerstown married Tuesday evening last by Rev. Lemmon, to Christian G. Conradt, formerly of Frederick.

In fact the wedding was announced in all the news. Besides the Frederick Town Herald it was also in the Maryland Herald Dec.30, 1823 and the Torchlight Dec 30, 1823. The wording was always the same and regretfully never included her parents' names.

The Rev. Lemmon was Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church from 1822 - 1828. During his tenure a new church building was completed on the corner of Jonathan and Antietam Streets. Unfortunately it burned down in 1871 taking with it records that may have identified Emily's parents.

Ann has not be found on the 1860 Census. Nothing more is known about her.
