Hi Nick & cuz. Inez, Inez I decend through Philadelphia who married Gabriel Lount sister to Mary Hughes who married John Cleaver in Catawissa, Northrumberland, Pa.I see you have the Josiah ( Hezakiah ) version ??I wonder which one of the boy`s he is susposed to be?Ellis Hughes & Mary ( Whildin ? ) m. 1761 in Cape May, N.J. had 7 childern Uriah, Theophilus, Issachar, Ellis Jr., Philadelphia, Mary & Judith.
Uriah got the farm moved to N.Y. and some of his decendant`s moved to Mi. ( New info. from a dec. here in Mi.Nick have you got anything on a stray Uriah Hughes in N.Y. during the 1830/40`s in your info.? )
Theophilus it is believed was with the Amer. side in the Rev. War if so he maybe the Capt. Theophilus Hughes of Pa. Malita during the War of 1812?, married to a Lydia Westcott?, mentioned and aqquitted in dual in Wash., D.C.? and then possably in New Orleans after 1850???This man is an enigma and very had to trace.Any help with him would be appreciated!

In connection with this will, see interesting discussion of Ellis and Uriah Hughes, pp 340 and 341 of Mayflower Descendants in Cape May County 1620 1920, by Rev. Paul Sturtevant Howe, LL.B., Ph.D., Cape May, New Jersey, 1921, Octavo, pp. 464 + iii. Ed.
Hannah Hughes first married a Philip Ford, then married Lewis Corson on March 11, 1824. This is the part about the Mayflower: Hannah (Hughes) Ford married second, March 11, 1824, Lewis Corson, also of Cape May. She was the grand daughter of Ellis Hughes (1708-1752) of Cape May, who married Hannah Whillden (c 1719-1739), granddaughter of Joseph Whillden and Hannah Gorham who married c 1683, and removed from Plymouth County, Massachusetts, to Cape May. By this marriage they became the progenitors of all those in Cape May, who later claim Mayflower descent from Hannah, daughter of Captain John Gorham and Granddaughter of John Howland.

Guess Mary`s dad didn`t like her husband ? Believe you must know some of their lineage down from when they went up into Canada?If not have corresponded with or visited the website`s several decendant`s of the Cleaver/Hughes line which by the way is the only line connected to the Hughes/Whildin to mention the name`s Josiah and/or Hezakiah so I am really courious as to if this is one person and/or either Uriah or Issachar?Or could someone have taken a name from the other Hughes`es Quaker line in Catawissa who goes back with the Boone & Foulk lines to/of Bucks Co., Pa. to Wales.
Is possible as one of our Lount/Pearson line`s show`s our Ellis of Catawissa as a decendant of the Boone/Hughes linage from Bucks Co. BUTtheir Ellis m. Hannah Yarnell and is well documented ( don`t think that the Quaker`s let an Ellis Hughes have two wife`s and families at the same time and same town ).Then just to confuse us Hughes researcher`s more the Hughes`es lines from Catawissa went up to Canada around the same time and intermarried??
Happy Hughes Hunting
