Hughes Family of PA, SC, TN, AL & MS.  Also: FOX & FINNELL.

Jesse HUGHES (1788-1858) was born in South Carolina, probably in Laurens
Co., SC.  About 1812, he married Dorcus JOHNSON (1792-1856).  They were
probably married in South Carolina as well.  About 1815, Jesse, Dorcus &
their young family migrated to Cocke Co., TN, where they resided for
about 5 years.  About 1820, Jesse, Dorcus & family migrated to Tuscaloosa
Co., AL.  Prior to 1850, the Hughes family migrated to Choctaw Co., MS,
as they show up on the 1850 Federal Census there.  Jesse HUGHES & Dorcus
Johnson had at least 11 children.

Jesse HUGHES was the son of John HUGHES (1750-1803) & Elizabeth.  John
HUGHES died in Laurens Co., SC.  Jesse HUGHES was the grandson of Richard
HUGHES (1710-1783) & Mary.  Richard HUGHES owned land in Union Co., SC,
on the Broad River. Currently, beyond Richard HUGHES, no
ancestors have been documented yet.  There is some possible evidence of
connections to Pennsylvania.  Also, it is alleged that the HUGHES family
migrated from Wales.
