I have an 1840 Yancey, North Carolina census listing an Evan Hughes with 12 other people in the home. The oldest was a male age between 50 & 60.
Evan is living next door to one of my relatives Penticost Gardner- who was married to Eustacia "Stacy" Hughes-she was born in NC abt 1804 & died in Nov 1789 in Mitchell, NC. After her death, husband Penticost Gardner is listed in 1880 living a nephew named Irvin Hughes in Bakersville, NC.
Could my Stacy be a sister to this Evan Hughes-your relative?
Any help would be appreciated.
