Etta Iona Axsom was born the third of five children on August 20 1880 possibly in Johnson township, Brown Co, Indiana, or Monroe County, Indiana. At some point her family moved to the southern Iowa/northern Missouri area, where she married John Wesley Hughes on December 21 1899.

Etta died on July 19 1967. She was the mother of two children.

Etta and John are buried together in Freedom Cemetery near Saline, Missouri. She did not want to be buried on the Hughes Cemetery, located on John's father's farm, as she did feel it would be maintained.
