Charles E Smith, 50, born in Michigan, lived in Detroit in 1935
Kathleen Smith, wife, 50, born in Canada, lived in Detroit in 1935
Charles Hughes, 42, brother in law, born in Canada, lived in Chicago in 1935, naturalization papers pending

If all the numbers are right in that 1940 census in the last post, then maybe Kathleen Smith's maiden name was Hughes.
The Smiths were in Detroit in 1934 when Margaret (Millar) Hughes died, but Charles & Mary Hughes were in Chicago, at least in 1935.
Why would Margaret be living with a non-relative?
If so, could this be a case of siblings marrying siblings?

So could we presume there might be a Charles Hughes/Kathleen Hughes and Archie Hughes.   ???

We have Archie presumably born England - can't quite read that on the 1911 but they all immigrated 1905.
Charles Hughes born Canada. Kathleen Hughes born Canada  ???

I don't know locations in England very well. Could this be their marriage:

marriages at freebmd.org.uk

Marriages Sep Quarter 1883 
HUGHES    William James       Birkenhead    8a   765
MILLER    Margaret Ann       Birkenhead    8a   765

edit, probably not. see 2 posts below.

On the 1911 census for William, Margaret & son Archie Hughes, you can see Charles & Katherine Smith listed below them. Katherine is born England and immigrated in 1905, same as for  William, Margaret & son Archie.

William Hughes 1911 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVBQ-2NM3

This might not be them after all. I found a couple births in Birkenhead to a Hughes - Miller couple and the children's names don't match the couple in Toronto
Just in case, the childrens names were:
Robert Ernest, born 4th qtr 1886
Amy Maud, born 3rd qtr 1890
