In Regards to your message on the Hughes board dated 12 July 2004.
You stated that Franklin Drayton Hughes was the son of Cader Hughes who was the son of John Hughes.
I have an Eli Hughes who was born 1803 in SC and was married to a lady named Creel, he supposedly burned in Bibb County Alabama. Also a John Hughes was married to a Rebecca Bush in Ga., also died and buried in Bibb County Alabama. I do know that My John died sometime between
1856 and 1858 for Rebecca was listed as a widow when he remarried a Matt Rowe and they raise her child she had with John (a James Henley Hughes my ggrandfather)
Can you are have you any links to Eli?
