Blount Co., AL 1860 census

1860 - John Hughs age 47 born in SC, wife Melvina age 40 born in GA, Children Frances J. 11 born MS, Margaret M. 9 b in MS and John M. 3 b in MS.

Who is this John Hughs? He was born in 1813. He is very possibly the son of William H. We know that William H. had a son on the 1830 census who was unnamed but born around 1813. We know that William H. was in Gwinnett Co., GA and his son possibly found a bride there. The first child was named Frances J. The J. could have stood for Jane. This would be consistent with the family as the mother's name was Jane. I truly wish that I could determine if this is correct. If anyone out there traces their ancestry to John Hughs in Blount Co. in 1860 PLEASE contact me.
