William Hughes - Marshall Co and George

Our William Hughes was still in Marshall County in 1870 on page 55 of the census. He was remarried to Margaret who was 60 This was a second wife and she was born in TN. They had 26 year old Mary E. Hughes living there and a Charles Bowen who was 44 and born in Tennessee. William is listed as being born in SC and he is also listed as paralyzed and helpless. His estate was worth $150 with $100 in real estate.

I have seen the marriage records where William Hughes married a Margaret Stewart in 1855. I did not know they had a daughter until now.

Also, Charles Bowen, age 44 born in TN, living in the household. He is listed as a farmer. A James Bowen lived next door and is probably Charles' father.

The question that I have is:

Was Jane Hughes in Jefferson Co. in 1850, our gggrandmother, William's first wife? She was 59 years of age, born in SC, and living with Pleasant Sullivan. I strongly suspect that she and William separated and she moved in with Pleasant Sullivan and Cassandra Hughs Sullivan. Perhaps she died before 1855 or possibly a divorce???

This family split may explain why all of William and Jane's children went to Morgan County while William stayed in Marshall with his second wife and child.

Just found the documentation that I have been looking for that George Hughs, SC did serve in Revolutionary war from SC. He enlisted in the second regiment Nov. 9, 1776 and was later a private and sargeant in the militia.

Due to our failure in ordering the DNA kit from the right group, we never received results from the first DNA test.

Because of this, I have been reluctant to post that we are trying again, but... we are trying again.

A first cousin has kindly agreed to another test. The kit is ordered and I will post results asap.
