Joseph and John Hughes in SC

Jim, While in SC I found a record of Joseph Hughes who was deceased March 22, 1798. His land was deeded to William Hughes, Elizabeth Hughes, Thomas Hughes, Sally Hughes, and John Hughes. Could this be your John? The administrators of the estate were Thomas and William. I am fairly certain that Joseph Hughes was closely related to a James Hughes. Somewhere in my records, I have information on Seaborn Hughes, but right now I cannot find it. I will continue to look.

Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files has William Hughes from Rutherford listed and another William Hughes who was from Lunenberg Co., VA. ???
