I am seeking information on Hannah Sopheria/Sophronia Hughes, wife of William Tilford Mears who appear in Texas records.Her death certificate indicates she was born 23 May 1847 in Alabama (though the 1900 census gives 1850 as the year).A Family Treemaker website notes she was in Conecuh Co AL in 1850 and 1860, leading me to believe that she was the same Hannah Hughes who was listed in William A. Northcutt's household in 1850/1860 Conecuh as his niece. I would like to verify that.
Also, I found an abstract of an Alabama death certificate for a William Huse, born 1842 in Conecuh Co AL and died May 1924 in Conecuh Co AL. The parents are given as William Huse and Mary Northcutt and indicates that William was widowed at the time of his death in 1924.The abstract does not indicate who gave the information.
I believe Hannah and William to be sister and brother, and their likely mother Hannah Northcutt. I do not have a middle name for the elder Hannah, so it could be she was Hannah Mary Northcutt or Mary Hannah Northcutt.Additionally, one of Hannah Northcutt's sisters was named Sophia, which is extremely close to the younger Hannah's middle name.
As both William Huse (Hughs/Hughes) and Hannah Northcutt appear to have died prior to 1850, leaving the children orphans, I have been searching in the dark for a number of years.Finding Hannah (Hughes) Mears and William Huse are the first breakthroughs.
