Rebecca Melissa Hughes & Early VA Marriages & Benjamin Hughes

Today I received a picture from Forrest Mullins of Rebecca Melissa Hughes, his great-grandmother and daughter (5th child) of Moses and Sarah (Isbell) Hughes. Rebecca was born March 17, 1840 in Jefferson Co., Alabama. Later this week, the picture will be posted on Images of the Hughes Family along with information that Forrest sent me about Rebecca.

Also, I found pages that I had copied from Liahona Research, Inc. of the marriages in VA from 1744-1800. If you are interested in having me check for a particular name contact me at jan@hughestree.org I will be happy to check for you.

I would like to ask help for Pasty Faulkinberry. She needs help with the following: B.B.Hughes (Benjamin Baily Hughes) b Jan 27, 1853 in Tallapoosa, GA d Dec 13, 1935 in Cleburne,TX buried in Grandview TX first marriage to Frannie Sheffield 2nd Nancy Elenor Davis. 2 children by 1st and 4 by 2nd. he was in Al and in Tupelo, MI where Patsy's grandmother was born from 1st spouse. Please send any information you have to Jan@hughestree.org, or post as a comment here.

My James Marion Hugh(e)s was born in NC about 1832. He married about 1865 in GA to Mary Bryson.
They were living at Catoosa Co., GA on the 1880 census. His son, John Andrew Hughes was my great grandfather. John married, Fannie Smith in 1888 in Catoosa Co., GA, then came to TX between 1895 and 1900. And John was an only son as far as I can tell (looking at the 1880).Can you tell me if James has any connection to any of the NC Hughes that I have seen on the other families? Thanks

Are you related to the Hodges from Decatur, AL? I do not know about your James Marion Hughes. Did you see the post about TX? I will see what I can find, but do not remember the name James Marion. There are 13 James Marions on Rootsweb World Connect. I did not see yours, though. I will keep looking.

I wonder if you have ever run across Henry Larkin Hughes, married (1) ?; (2) Zilphia McCroan. He lived in Monticello , Fl. with first wife and then Married 2nd wife and lived around Grady Co., GA. This second marriage had 3 children, Henry Larkin Jr., Angelina and Mrs. Ben Stone. He is my husband's Great Grandfather and we have been unable to find anything on him. He was born around 1812 in S.C. we think. Our line is Henry Larkin Hughes, Jr. Any infomation would be greatly appreciated. Betty Ruth Gandy
