William, Cader, Roan, Joseph, Willie, Ella

This link to a George Hughes is very interesting. The one possible connection to our Hughes that I note is the use of the name Micajah Hughes. Micajah Hughes is later found in SC along with out Laurens, Hughes clan. This could, of course, be a completely different Micajah. If anyone reading this has information concerning Micajah, please share it with us. This is the site: George Hughes

A reader needs help with the following: (Please post a comment if you are able to help. Forrest, if you see this, you might be able to shed more light than I am.)

My great grandfather was born in Ga. the family travel to Al. then Ms. (where he disappeared), His wife and children are listed in Choctaw Co.Ms. in 1880 census. M.J. Hughes is listed with her children, Roan 1860, Cader 1862, Joseph 1866, Willie 1869, Ella 1876. All the children were born in Ms. the parents born in Ga. Land
records show before M.J.'s ownership is listed a William Hughes owned the land. My father always said he had uncles named Sam Hughes, George Hughes, and a Joseph Hughes I found a Cader Hughes back in S.C. (same as my grandfather's name) can't connect them yet. My father William Arthur (1891 ,in Ms.) brothers were Emery Hughes 1895 Ms , D. Talmadge Hughes 1900 in Ar, and one sister Nevada Hughes Ursery 1896 in Ms.. My Cader married Louella Gabel in Tallahatchie Co. Mississippi. Around 1898 they moved to Lonoke Co Arkansas.

Another reader is looking for:
Seeking descendants and information about Thomas W. and Jane Hughs (Hughes) of Boone Co., KY early 1800's.

And let's not forget this request:
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
