I have a relative named Thomas C Hughes, who lived in Orangeburg,Sc, with son named Wilkiam. Thomas was born in 1819 and died in 1874. He is buried in Spartanburg's, Ebenezer Church Cemetary and listed as a Confederate soldier.
I am trying to find his parents. It is possible that his father was also named Thomas, who may have come to the area around 1754.
