And thank you for how you are helping everyone like this!
I am trying to figure out WHEN they moved into the Parish:
John Peter Hanes, born 1 Oct 1777 in VA and died 20 Aug 1858. Married Martha Drennen abt 1802 in Amite County, MS. He and his youngest son owned a ferry boat crossing and a general store in a town called Hanesville (so the story goes)
John C Hughes, born abt 1804 in KY. Died Oct 1866. Married to Maletha M Hanes (daughter of John Peter Hanes and Martha Drennan). Married abt 1832-1833. Location unknown.
I have Census records on Hughes starting in 1840 in Catahoula for John and his brother William, but nothing before that...
