Tremain Hughes
New York State Police, NY

Corporal Gaines, a communications expert, was being transported from SP Batavia to SP Oneida for a teletypewriter system inspection.

Thoughts and Memories of Tremain Hughes

Tremain Hughes was my grandfather. Though he died many years before I was born, I have heard a great many stories about him. He left behind a wife and 3 young children. His daughter, my mother, donated some memorabelia to the Troop D headquarters.

I would be interested to hear any comments or stories anyone might have to share.
