Surnames: Hughes
I am getting confused!

Im tracing the Hughes side of my family tree. They were from Llanbrynmair area in Wales but some also emigrated to USA. I think Iowa and Pennsylvania were a copuple of the places.
Im getting a bit confused with who was born where etc. For Example, I have John Griffiths Hughes born abt1852 in Cemmaes, Wales and married Martha Owen(s) born 1857. He is listed on a number of other peoples family trees which I have seen on ancestry. On these tress his father is listed as Edward Hughes born abt 1820 in Wales but later lived in USA? I have seen a copy of John and Marthas marriage certificate and that lists Johns father as John and not Edward.
I had a look for Edward and I think I have found a 1880 US census with Edward and his wife Mary and 3 of the children (Edward, Mary and William) and says the children were born in Penn. I am wondering if the maybe had some children in USA and then came back wales and had some of the others?

I’m not sure what to do next
