George and Asbury Hughes

For those of you who are interested in the hanging of George and Asbury Hughes in Scottsboro, AL in 1883, I recommend this site.
I am interested in knowing more about their parentage. If anyone has information on the grandfather of these two, I would greatly appreciate your help. I was raised not far from Scottsboro and I had not heard this story until I began genealogy research. My own ggrandfather was named George Hughes, however, I have not found a link to this family.

There was a George Hughes, born 1781, in Sullivan co, TN. He married Barbara Booher. They had one son, George jr. I havn't tracked where George jr went but always thought to AL and MS. VERY HARD TO TRACK BECAUSE THE SULLIVAN CO COURTHOUSE WAS BURNED DOWN IN 1864.
