St. James Parish, VA

Some time ago, I listed the George Hughs (Hughes) with a birthdate that would fit George Hughes in Laurens. None of those listed turned out to be our George.

Today, I find two accounts of the birth of George Hughes that were not listed before. There was a George Hughes born to Issaac Hughes and Mary Warne in 1765 who is unaccounted for as far as I can tell. Also, St. James Parish in Leesburg has a record of George Hughes being christened in 1760.

Found this concerning Isaac Hughes - Richland, SC
Will of George Smith, Richland Co., dated 20 Nov. 1817 ...wife...grandson George Hughes son of Isaac Hughes...grandson John Smith son of Thomas Smith...son George Smith. Appraisers: Robert Miller, John D?????, John Wyche.

I really need to make a trip to VA, but that does not seem possible at the present time.
