Guess we are cousins. Don't know why the email bounced as

. Yes, Jemima Hughes is not listed
at times but is his daughter. I have Mary D. listed as a
my book - maybe Mary D(Drake?). I bet there are lots of
cousins out there besides us.
Lately I have found out a little bit more about Morgan
Hughes of Morgan Hughes station. Since I haven't found
any more information on Jesse, thought I'd look at Morgan.
I found a little book for kids (ha) "The Incredible Adventures of Daniel Boone's Kid Brother". On page 54 it
lists who was in the company of Squire Boone.Here's the
list of 1780 that Squire Boone sent to Col. Bowman (23
people) Squire Boone,Captain,Alex Bryant,John Buckler,
Richard Cates,Charles Doelman,John Eastwood,Joseph Eastwood,
Jeremiah Harris,Abraham Holt,Morgan Hughes,Evan Hinton,
John McFadden,John Nichols,Peter Raul,John Stapleton,Robert
Tyler,Abraham Van Meter,Allen Wickersham,Jacob Wickersham,
Peter Wickersham,James Wright,George Yunt.
I have found Morgan Hughes in an Indian War Affadivit when
I searched on Rootsweb for "Morgan Hughes". It's there under
I also go to the Dallas Public Library every once in awhile.
I looked at wills in the Chester Co. Pa. There was one
for a Morgan Hughs dated 1726-1727 Easttown. Wife Elizabeth. Eldest son Benjamin,daughter Dorthy. Witnesses Wm.Davis,
Morgan Hughs,Richard Iddings.
So I'm thinking Morgan
is maybe a grandson of this Morgan Hughs. The spelling of
the last name Hughs - is considered the same as Hughes.
Another will in the Chester Co. Pa was Edward Hughes Easttown. 1716,1720.Wife Mary. Youngest son Morgan Hughes,
daughter Margaret Hughes,Mary Hughes,youngest daughter
Elinor.Grandchild Mary daughter of John David.Granddaughter
John David and Katherine Viz(?)David & Elizabeth.Exrs son Evan & friend William Davies.Guardians brother Morgan Hughs,
Brother in law Philip Daivd and Thomas Edwards. Wits Hugh Nowell David Thomas.
So I'm thinking Jesse when to Chester Co.,Pa since kin are
there. Morgan looks like he may be from there, also.
Right now I'm trying to look up Morgan Hughes in a rooster
somewhere. It's not easy as he was in the Indian Wars and
not the Revolution. Squire Boone got an honorary for
being in the Revolutionary War due to all of the wounds
from the Indian Wars he was in. It's amazing he survived.
Also Jesse Hughes was under George Rodgers Clark in 1784.
Can't find anything about Clark at Hughes station. George
Rodgers Clark was William Clark's brother of Lewis and
Clark famous. Geez! Our background keeps getting better
I have found Hughes Station written up by another. Said it
wasn't much of a station. I think we'd only know of it
since it was by Abraham Lincoln's grandfather's place.
You can try to email me again. Don't know why it bounced.
