Marshall County

Earlier I asked if any Hughes finding this web-site believes that they are descended from George and Rhoda, please contact me. I have been disappointed to have no contacts. Today I have decided to post some information from Marshall County, AL and see if perhaps someone sees a connection that way. Here are few things that I found in the library in Arab,AL.

Marshall County 1840 - Census index shows Reed B. Hughes and William Hughs. Garretts are John, Edward, Joseph, Newton.

J.W.B. Hughs dec'd. died intestate on the 19th July 1862 leaving widow Elizabeth Hughs & William Robert age 4, John Wesley age 2, Milly Lurinda age 11.

George H. C. Hughs AL 5th Cavalry Co. D. 2nd Lt.
Richard W. Hughes AL 5th Cavalry Co. D. 2nd Lt.
Amanda J. Dendy widow of Moses Hughs N.E. (AL Genealogy Society July 1885 No. 1. Vol 24 was the source)

In Cherokee Co., 1850 (not far from Marshall Co.) is the son of the above James W. B. Hughs. Thomas C. Hughes 43 M. born SC, wife Margaret Hughes 25 F born SC, child Margaret age 1 F born AL

I am going to take the liberty of sending you information that my sister, Demaris, sent me. This was found on-line.
Marshall County - Symantha Hughes Payne born 1827 and died 1891. Buried Haney Cemetery (out from Guntersville,AL)
Rhoda Hughes & Jessie Culver, married 1838 She is the daughter of William H. Hughes and my gg aunt.

R.B. Hughs performed many marriages in 1852 & 1853. This would have been Richard Blanton Hughs. 1854 J. Young Hughs married Susan Flack. 1855 William Hughs married Margaret Stewart. At first we thought perhaps this was our William and that Jane had died and he remarried, however, the age is not right for him to be ours.

Henry Huse was bond on at least two marriages in 1879 and 1884. He marked X (could not write)

1869 Richard W. Hughes married Mary Jane Black.

1871, Washington L. Hughes married Elizabeth Barnard.

1870, Charles A. Hughes married Mary Jane Ditto.

That is a good idea Mean Dean. I will try and do better about listing my sources. Some of the material has come from other researchers, but most was taken from books and notes that I have kept over the years. On My Family Tree, I have used census records, family Bible, and an interview with my oldest living relative. Some of the information came from Edward Garrett's 1,000 years from Normandy.
