In this posting you have listed a David Hughes as a son of John Hughes. I am trying to find information on the parents of David Hughes born about 1795. He married Leah Moorer in Orangeburgh District, SC and left SC for AL before 1830. I have no clue who his parents might be. Could this be the David you have listed here?

It is certainly possible that this is your David and even probable that this is him. This was taken from the Rev. War pension application of John and Hannah Hughes. Land records might help you to determine if this is your David. Also, try to determine where the other siblings ended up.
