Cassandra Hughs married Pleasant Sullivan

According to a post on Genforum, Cassandra who married Pleasant Sullivan was Cassandra Hughs. If you saw the earlier blog, you may remember that Jane Hughes was living in the household with them in 1850. Cassandra was born in 1810 in SC. If anyone seeing this is able to identify Cassandra Hughs, please share the information. At first I believed that Jane was staying with them because of the connection to the Garrett family, but now I suspect it is due to Cassandra. If we can learn the identity of Cassandra, it will be a giant step forward.

I am still looking for the identity of George Hambrie Hughes who married Elliot Mary Carter. He was the postmaster in Flint, Morgan Co., AL.

An identity problem with George Hughes who fought in the AL 5th Calvary, Co. D exist. Here is the problem. When my father sent for his grandfathers Civil War record, he received papers on a George Hughes who was a 2nd Lt. in Co. D, 5th Regt., AL Cav. This George had the middle name Hambrie. The wife who applied for the pension was Elliott Mary Hughes, daughter of Jesse Adams Carter The commanding officer was Josiah Patterson. The papers state that George H. Hughes enlisted in TX but transferred to Alabama. He was a First Lieutenant. He was discharged at Danville, AL at the end of the war. His wife lived at Flint with nieces.
