I am looking for information on the oldest brother of William Nathan
(Bill). I think he was alive in the 1920's, because my mother said her
father used to talk about "old Uncle Ander." I don't know if he wound up
in Dale Co., Henry Co., or Coffee County, AL or perhaps in Jackson Co., FL.
Here is what I have on the rest of the family, just in case someone
Still searching for parents or siblings of William Hughes.
One document in his estate settlement gives his middle initial as A.
William Hughes, b. abt. 1815 m. Priscilla Ann Davis abt. 1833, prob. Lee
GA, (later Randolph). He stated at least once on a census that he was b.
NC. He first appears in Randolph County as early as 1834 in a land sale.
Priscilla Ann Davis Hughes was daughter of Nathan Davis and Mary Campbell
William and Priscilla moved to Henry Co., AL after August of 1859, but
the 1860 census. Their children are:
Andrew J. Hughes (possibly Jackson) My mother remembers her father
to â€œold uncle Anderâ€?
Sarah A. E. Hughes m. her first cousin Lewis J. Rivers
Richard H. Hughes - may have been killed in the Civil War
James K. P. Hughes - may have also been killed in the Civil War
George M. Dallas Hughes - m. Rebecca Guy, moved to Robertson Co., TX and
there in Nov. of 1890. His family remained in Texas.

Subject: [DALE COUNTY] As long as we're talking Joneses...
Since Dale, Henry, Pike and Houston Counties all have practically
at one time or another, I'd like to re-post my Jones query:
JONES - Amanda Caroline Jones. The Henry Co., AL 1860 census says b. AL
1850 says b. FL on 27 Oct 1825, other Sellers lore says she was b. in the
Oree (Horry?) dist of SC.
Married Rufus Daniel Sellers bef. 1849 (oldest child b. Jan, 1849) maybe in
Co., AL. She is supposed to have had a sister named Tempie, who married
Daniel's twin brother, Wright. This is pretty certainly confirmed
and the full name was Susannah Temperance. In the 1850 Henry Co., AL
a woman named Susannah Jones is living with the Sellers family. Her age is
68. Also on the
census are William Jones, 21, and Robert Jones, 20, both listed as having
born in FL. I have found a document in Henry Co. of an Amanda Caroline
who might be a namesake of my Amanda. She is listed in an Orphan's Court
report upon the heirs of David G. Jones - February, 1847 as a minor at the
time. There was also an accounting in Dec 1848. My Amanda is probably too
old and is also married at the time.
If you have any information on this Jones, I would appreciate it.
