Ancestry.com finds a James Frederick Hughes, born in Syracuse, NY 7 April 1924 to parents Edward Peter Hughes (1880-1947) and Caroline "Carrie" E. Mulliner (1890-1973). The fact that the photo was found in New York state makes me think he may have been a "local boy" with family still living in the same locale.
This James F. Hughes had four sisters and two brothers.
