*From THE HUGHES OF TANGIPAHOA PARISH, by Etta Bahm Hughes (1983):

Page 31:

"George Henry Hughes was born about 1806 in South Carolina or Georgia---it seems that William Henry had moved to Georgia c. 1800 and several of his sons were born there.

George had worked for Nathan Joiner before he conveniently married Nathan's daughter, Mary. Mary was given a nickname of Polly. As time went on, she would in later years go back to "Bailey's Branch" on visits to see her sisters who lived there. Brunette had married Pierra Hypolite Bahm, and Margaret had married Valcour Bahm who would tease his wife (always for fun and foolishness) on any occasion. This time he might have been annoyed that Margaret was probably shining up her house, preparing food, and otherwise upsetting the routine of dear husband. So he comes in with a large grunt, "Um-um-umph, everything has to be done for Queen Polly---Queen Polly's coming". ( As heard by my father, Robert Buzzy Bahm.)

So I heard a good deal about George Hughes during my younger years because of this connection. My father was one of the local historians of our community, so I heard him discuss relationships and kindred many many times. After I had married Robert, it had a different meaning, when I realized that I had married not only a relative of George Hughes, but a very distant relative of my own family. We laughed about it and the quirk of history; there were not so far away after all.

The home of George and Mary was probably the center of the Hughes Settlement. This settlement was comprised of the Martin Hughes place, the Calvin Hughes place, the George Hughes place, old Bill Sharp's home, and the homes of Levi Bill, Martin VanBuren Hughes, Gideon Bond and Ira Alford.

The Travelers Inn existed for years near the old Sharon Church and the cemetery near that.

George and Marry Hughes were the parents of eleven chidren, the last of whom was born in Texas. About 1845, George and Mary took their children and started out for California to participate in the gold rush. They reached the Neches River area in Texas and, running out of supplies, stopped to raise a crop. They settled in JAcksonville, Cherokee County, TX. Hughes was an early settler at Gum Creek (Old Jacksonville) near the Neches River.

One business they were in was General Mercantile of Hughes & Maples.

In 1848, George died of yellow fever and was buried on the banks of the river near the present city of Orange, TX. When George died, Mary returned with slaves and children and raised her family alone in the Hughes Settlement."
