HAUGH GENEALOGY ADDITIONS ~ SEPTEMBER 13, 2001
THE HAUGH SURNAME
The ancient Alphabet of the Gaels contained only sixteen letters where each letter was named for shrubs and trees, and there was no letter H or P included. Modern Gaelic now contains eighteen letters, compared to English which has twenty-six. The ancient family name of Haugh was "Eochaidh," meaning a Knight, a Horseman, Horse Kings, Fierce Horsemen, or Horse Nobles. The later version was "O'h-Eochaidh" which is pronounced OHH-HAWK-EE, and it then became anglicised as O'Heoghy, Hoey, Howe, Haugh, Haughey, etc. depending upon the dialect of Irish used. Today, the name Haugh is pronounced "Hauk" or "Hawk" in Ireland.
New Haugh Genealogy Information - September 13, 2001
I had known that the Cass County Haughs were connected to the Carroll County, Delphi Haughs since Bud and Betty had taken Kim and me to the St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Delphi, about 4 years ago.
At the time Bud did not know which group of Haughs he was related to. He did , however, relate to us (and Kim recently had to refresh my memory) why the Carroll County Haughs were Catholic and the Cass County Haughs were not. The family story was; One of the children (apparently this would have been on Thomas Jefferson Haughs side, since he was not Catholic) was jumping up and down in the church attic, after the church ceiling had been freshly plastered. The plaster came loose and fell from the ceiling. The priest apparently didnt think this was very nice and gave the Haugh child a good thrashing. The parent did not like this whipping and left the church, so the story goes.
On September 13, 2001, I "read" the 5 Haugh grave plots at the Delphi St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery and researched the Haugh ancestors in the Carroll County Historical Society Museum at Delphi. Actually, to be honest, the volunteer at the museum did the research, I only recorded what she found for me. jkd
