  1. Is the same Ed Hughes who was the Road Commissioner when Anita Sherwood was the Nunda Township Supervisor? If I remember correctly he wanted to be on all the signature cards for Nunda at Home State Bank. I think he and Anita had a disagreement on that power play.

    It would be nice if someone kept a diary at that time, so we could know more McHenry County History.
