Please consult the section in each volume entitled "Additions and 
Corrections" when using these books. Additions and corrections are listed 
alphabetically as to each volume. and are reflected in the index in the 
volume in which same appears. The bits of data in these "Additions and 
Corrections", were discovered by the Compiler or furnished him too late to 
be shown in the main sketches.

HUGHES, JACOB (pp. 139-140): (1st) Mr. Hughes had two children by the first 
wife, instead of only one. These two were William and Lucretia. The first 
wife died in 1819 and not "about 1814". (2nd) Add to Census References: 
1810, Barnwell County, S. C.; 1870, Echols County, widow only. (3rd) Mrs. 
Olive Dame Peterson, daughter of Mrs. Lillie Hughes Dame of Fort Pierce, 
Fla., became the first descendant of William Hughes, R. S., to be admitted 
on his service as a member of the D.A.R. She is a member of John Floyd 
Chapter, D.A.R., and her National Number is 409289, admitted June 10, 1952.

HUGHES, JACOB (p. 139): (1) His daughter, Pollie, married William S. 
Peters, son of William (Vol. 1). (2) Mr. Hughes served as a deacon in Union 
Church from the date of his ordination June 13, 1841, until his death.

HUGHES, JACOB (p.139): The son, Elbert Hughes, enlisted April 2, 1862, as a 
private in Co. "D", 50th Georgia Volunteer Regiment, a Lowndes County 
company in the Confederate Army. He was wounded in battle at Crampton's 
Gap, -Md., Sept. 14, 1862, and died soon afterwards of his wounds, 
according to his company's roll.

HUGHES, HENRY H. (p.149): (1) The tombstone on his grave in Empire Church 
cemetery, Lanier County, shows he was born April 11, 1830, died July 6, 
1919. His son, William Hansford Hughes, was buried by him. The date of 
birth on the tombstone would make him only 13 years old when his first 
child was born! (2) The statement made that Mr. Hughes died in the 
Confederate Army, was based on information given the Compiler by grandsons, 
and also shown in the unpublished collections of the late W. Henry Griffin, 
Berrien County historian. The tombstone would make this all wrong, stating 
he did not die until 1919. The Compiler cannot determine what company and 
regiment he served in the Confederate Army.
