First Families of Rugby, Tennessee

On Labor Day weekend 2000 Historic Rugby, Inc. will host a reunion for the descendants of Thomas Hughes founder of the Rugby Colony. To help celebrate the event a major effort is being made to gather information on early settlers in the colony. HRI will issue a certificate commemorating First Families of Rugby to any applicant who directly descended from an original Rugby Colonist. The information gathered will become a permanent part of the Rugby archives and made available to future researchers.

Applicants that cannot prove that they directly descended from an early settler may be eligible for the Rugby Cousins award. The only requirement is proof of a family relationship to an original Rugby Colonist.

Or send a SASE to: First Families of Rugby Historic Rugby, Inc. P.O. Box 8 Rugby, Tennessee 37733
