I descend from Ledia,or Lidia Hughes who was born in South Carolina in 1819, and married Isaac Ewing 4 Oct 1837 in Newton Co., GA. The family moved to Gwinnett Co., Georgia.
They did NOT have a daughter named Rhoda. Ledia's children were: William E. "Billy", Mary A. C., Joseph, Martha, Jonathan, Eli, Eliza, Elizabeth "Betsy", Rebecca E., Nancy, WIllie Mae, and Nuley.
Because so many other family lines came from Laurens Co., SC, it is presumed hers may as well.
Do you have anything on the Hughes family of Newton Co., GA. I've wondered ifLidia Hughes was anaunt ofLydia A. and Rebecca Hughes listed together in the Poor School in 1841 of Newton Co., GA?There was a Patsey Hughes that married Jesse Hamby on 9-17-1839 in Newton Co., GA.
