Subject: Hughes Family in South Carolina - Alabama - Texas

The Hughes Family of Limestone County Texas is seeking to confirm or disprove the legend that the family patriarch - Jacob C Hughes b. 1863 in Texas - claimed to be 3/4 Cherokee Indian.

His father John J. Hughes was born in South Carolina about 1830 and his mother was named Frances (maiden name possibly Browne), born in Texas about 1840.

The focus of the inquiry is to ask if these two - John J. Hughes and wife, Frances - might have lived in and around Cherokee County Texas prior to 1860 and then perhaps migrated to Limestone County with the Posey-Berryhill Family, sometime after 1860.

The Hughes family is shown in southern Limestone County with a young daughter named Elizabeth and son Jacob, in the 1870 Census

We know that John J. made a brief stop in Alabama before moving on to Texas, but nothing more.

any leads in this inquiry would be most welcome.
