Moses Hughes and Hughes family, VA, SC, AL, TX

I have recently completed a book on Moses Hughes of Lampasas County, TX. It includes chapters on the Hughes family from its Northern Neck, VA, roots in the early 1700s; following the family's move to Pittsylvania Co., VA; Abbeville Co., SC; St.Clair/Talledega Cos., AL; to Texas in 1835. Moses Hughes (1819-1903), the focus of the book came to Texas with his parents before Republic of Texas days, lived in central Texas before moving in the early 1850s to Lampasas Co.
The book includes allied lines: Dobbins, Senterfitt, Berry, Cullins, Smith.
The soft-cover book, which contains 260 pages, an every-name index, & copies of the Hughes Family Bible pages, is available from me for $23.00. This includes tax & s&h.

No I do not have those specific names nor any book. WHat I am interested in is the connection with HUGHES in SC and AL. If those families are a connection then there may be new connections I am not aware of.

Surnames: Hughes, Garrett, Powell
There are several Moses Hughes in my family line. The oldest date I have is a Moses Hughes born to George Hughes and Rhoda Garrett in Laurens CO. S.C. in 1801.
Some of the family moved to Jefferson County Ala. and some to central Texas. I think George Hughes was from Virginia but am not sure.

Do you include Nathaniel HUGHES of VA and his family? His son Moses stayed in AL while my ancestor, his son John (married Dorcas CULLINS) (temporarily in St. Clair Co. AL), moved to Burleson Co. TX. John's son William is my ancestor. William and his family stayed in Talladega Co. AL.

Are you still on board and have book still available? Recently discovered the TX connection along with SC>GA>AL. Your book may provide further info on my HUGHES line prior to SC in 1785.
