In researching my family I find a George Hughes listed with the Latter Day Saints as born in 1847 in Abbeville, South Carolina son of Alexander Hughes and Edna Posey. Also listed with Latter Day Saints is George Hughes b. 1742 in Buffalo Creek, Now Patrick Co., Virginia son of Blackmore Hughes and Elizabeth Roberts. Also listed in the 1864 Prince Edward Island Directory entering Canada is a George Hughes who was a saddle and harness maker from Kent n Water. Good luck with your search.
