Hughes died in 1927 according to a Kennedy family tree (Thomas J Kennedy b.1844 in Ireland- d.1922 and Adelaide Chamberlain) written by Anna J. Marsh, Adelaides sister. Adelaide is said to have retired after his death in 1927. The article reads as thus: ...
" Adelaide started as a premiere dancer at the New York Casino at the age of nine. She started dancing on her toes when she went to dancing school at five. There was never a dancer, that is a professional, in the family so heaven only knows where she acquired that talent. Mama, much against the wishes of my father, took her to New York for ballet training with the best teachers. From nine until she was forty, she appeared as a star attraction in many New York productions and was a headliner in Vaudeville with her husband John J. Hughes under the stage name Adelaide and Hughes. When her husband died in 1927 she retired- as a ballet dancer's active life is a short one. She died at 78 but was very active in social ways up to about three years ago. She lived a full life and saw much of the world. ( See Article's link)
