Miko Hughes is an American actor. Beginning as a very young child, his roles include the films Pet Sematary (1989), Kindergarten Cop, Jack the Bear, Cops & Robbersons, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Apollo 13, Zeus and Roxanne, Spawn (1997), Mercury Rising, and Steve Niles’ Remains, and the shows Full House, Life with Louie, and Roswell.
He is the son of Mary and John Hughes, a special effects technician.
Miko’s mother has said that she has a Chickasaw grandmother, referring to her own maternal grandmother. Miko’s great-grandmother Zuma Ruth Odell lived with her family on a Chickasaw reservation for a time, but is listed as “White” on U.S. Censuses. It is possible that she had Native American ancestry; some genealogies show Native American forebears in her family tree.
Miko’s maternal grandfather was Denver Robbins Phelps (the son of Walter Isaac Phelps and Jennie Bell Robbins). Walter was the son of Joseph Newton Phelps and Sarah Jane Anderson. Jennie was the daughter of Archibald Jefferson Robbins and Mary Jane Johnson.
Miko’s maternal grandmother was Bonnie Mae Chaney (the daughter of Jack Preston Chaney and Zuma Ruth Odell). Jack was the son of Isaac Newton Chaney and Martha Livisa/Livica Farley. Zuma was the daughter of Mark Whittaker Odell and Laura Nance.
