My handwritten notes have the following information. Andrew Hughes was in Pendleton, SC in 1810. He was born in Lancaster PA in 1755. He died in Anderson SC in Sept. 1, 1843. He is buried in Pickens Chapel Cemetery, along with Mary Smith. My notes say that he served in the Rev. War and had sons named Andrew Jr., Charles, James, Joel, Thompson and possibly three more. Joel is on the census in Laurens in 1800. I have a question mark beside the statement that Andrew's father was Charles. I invite anyone who has information on Andrew to contact me.

My goal for the blog has become two fold. I wish to track the family of George Hughes both before and after Laurens. I hope that Hughes descendants from his children John, Thomas, Edward, Aaron, Anna will contact us here and the family history can be more complete. Two descendants of Moses are already a part of the history and of course I am a descendant of William. Also, I want to help other researchers. With that in mind, I do plan to put some information on a link asap concerning census tracking. I have the Hughes who were in Laurens, Newberry, Pendleton from 1790 through 1820 compiled and will place that on the site by this time next week.
