William Hughes family in Mississippi
Would like to exchange information with anyone researching William and Jemima (Gemima) Hughes of Tippah Co., Mississippi.Jemima was a Ward.Known children: David A., Rebecca J., James M., William L., George F., Tabitha A., Charles W., and John E.Charles was my great-grandfather.
The family appeared in the 1860 census in McNairy Co., Tennessee.The family next appeared in the 1870 Tippah Co., Mississippi census under the name, "Hues."Jemima died shortly after the 1870 census, and William remarried.I have not been able to find the family in the 1880 census.
William, Jemima, and the first three children were born in Alabama.Any ideas where in Alabama the family came from?
Charles eventually settled in Texas and lived in Dallas until his death in the late 1930s.At the time of his death, only two siblings were still alive: William (Billy) and George.Billy (who never married) lived in Dallas until his death in the late 1940s.Think George lived in the Memphis, Tennessee area.
Any other information would be appreciated.
