I have been doing genealogy for 30 years. My Great Aunt Ella introduced me to this fascinating adventure when I was a teenager and boy did I get hooked. She inspired me and taught me the importance of my roots and where I came from.

Pvt. William J Hough: Houston, TX 1917 Riot Camp Logan Series

William J Hough was born about 1891 in Alabama. All I know for sure is he had a sister named Mary M Hough who wrote a letter on his behalf for clemency. He was a farmer helping his dad on the family farm. He had Syphilis while he was in Leavenworth Prison.




He enlisted into the 24 Inf Company M

Rec: 1917
Crime: Mutiny & Murder
Term: Life
Reduced to 30 years
Reduced to 21 years 3 months
Expiring 25 Jan 1938

He may have died 3 Jul 1978 in Atlanta, GA. I haven't confirmed this.
