THE LIVING AND DEAD IN VIRGINIA. Feb. 16, 1623.

THE LIVING AND DEAD IN VIRGINIA. Feb. 16, 1623.

Here is another place where much information can be found. Louisa County, VA wills. They are alphabetized for easy searching. For Hughes, click on the name Betty
Harris.

Also, in Louisa County we find these Hughes marriages. Joseph is of interest to me

Hughes, John Meriwether, Ann 6/9/1783 Louisa F= William Meriwether
Hughes, Joseph Holland, Mary 11/2/1767 Louisa
Hughes, William H. Brooks, Martha 4/8/1811 Louisa
Hughson , Aubrey (28) Sanders, Bettie (22) 10/28/1873 son of Jno. N. & Sallie Hughson,
Hughson, Ellis G. Bunch, Dorcas 10/7/1818 Louisa
Hughson, John N. Unknown, Sarah E. 12/21/1841 Louisa
Hughson, Samuel Trevillian, Mary 3/25/1816 Louisa
Hughson, William Roberts, Eleanor A. 3-32-30 Louisa

The above search led me to Bedford County _

This line interested me: Ansel Goodman, 27 Aug 1786, from Raba (Arabia) and Elizabeth Brown, 150 ac. Grant from Augustine Leftwich to Joseph Patterson, then to George Hughes, then to Raba Brown, to Goodman. John Gallaway's, Randolph's old patent line, to Brown's corner, along Brown's line to the first station.

Also, there were many Reynolds here. Reynolds are buried with Hughes and Garretts in Warrior Creek cemetery.
