The only proof I have of my lineage of ancestry past Nathaniel and Rebecca are from the WorldConnect Project run by Roots web.I cannot authenticate it from documents. WorldConnect reads that Nathaniel's father was Edward Hughes b. Northumberland Co. VA abt. 1715 d. bef. 1752 in Gawley River, Kanawha, VA.Buried in Nicholas (Now West VA) Md. Elizabeth Grigsby b. abt. 1710 in St. Paul's Par., Stafford, VA marrtied 1734 in Stafford Co., VA.She was buried on Gawley River, Kanawha, VA. Edward's father was Thomas Hughes b: abt: 1680. Worldconnect shows Thomas's father to be Thoms Hughes b: abt 1663 in Northumberland Co., VA. Mother:Rachel Sudna b:, d: unknown. Thomas' father was Thomas Hughes b:England d: abt 1677in Northumberland Co, VA.This Thomas' father was John Hughes b: in England d: unknown md:Elizabeth b: in England. This is really s far back as I have been able to trace names (and dates) with our lineage.Am not a professional genealogist so will have to accept this lineage until some one else shows me that it is wrong. Yes the descendants of Nathaniel shows hi youngest son to be John b: abt 1778 d: abt 1846/Spme pf Nathaniel's family went to AL.Was John one of them? Keep in touch.
