Andrew Hughes

Each day I look for handwritten notes to include on this post hoping that I can post something that has not been placed on the web yet and help a fellow researcher. I find a few isolated facts here and there. For example, my notes say that in Pendleton District, SC, I found Andrew Hughes who later showed up in Anderson, SC. My notes say that he was from Lancaster PA born 1755 and died in Anderson SC September 1, 1843. Buried in the same cemetery, [Pickens Chapel Cemetery], is Mary Smith and Hughes? My notes say Andrew served in the Rev. War and was Micajah's father. He also had sons named Andrew Jr., Charles, James, Joel Thompson. I am not sure if James, Joel, and Thompson are three people are a part of the same name. There are no commas in my handwritten note, but I was often in a great hurry stealing a little time for research as my husband was working in SC. My notes say that Joel was in Laurens in 1800 and that Andrew's father was possibly Charles. On this, I did not list my source. Please forgive. I can tell you that it came from a book in the genealogy section of the library and not the courthouse record.
