I was so glad to see that yuou are still searching for the answers to where did James Hughes come from and where did he go!
I am still chasing him, too.
I went to Elbert Co., GA in April and found Catherine's father's will that refers to Catherine as being the widow of James and the will was filed before 1822.
I still have had no breakthroughs and am hoping to get to Corydon, Harrison Co., IN, early next month to see if I can learn more about the Hughes family there.
I found land records where John had purchased land and his mother, Catherine, is mentioned in the marriage book as giving permission for several of her children to marry.
If you have learned more about James' parentage or death place, please advise.
