I do have records of James Jackson born Feb 3, 1767, brother Joseph born 1769. Their parents were John Jackson and Elizabeth. James married Elizabeth Menton and Charles Jackson was my g grandfather 1791-1849. Was this Elizabeth a Jarvis or an Oronton? Not sure where this John was from but likely born in VA. There was a Joseph Jackson Sr. 1795-1774. Could this have been John's father?

John Hughes

John and Mary Hughes in Chatham County 1820, 30 census, mover to Sumter County GA by 1850. Listed ages as 63 and 62. I think this John moved to Savannah and worked at a bakery. Supposition is this John burn SC 1787.John married Mary Ann Gilbert, daughter of William Gilbert, wealthy planter of Wilmington Island GA. My Aunt found court documents and private letters corroborating the 1808 marriage and John Denis Benjamin Hughes born 1828 who married Delia Ann Hughes 1843 in Bulloch. My grandfather Bridger John Hughes 1853-1924.By the way, my Aunt Velma told me she uncovered court documents 1835 where John and Mary tried to get estate of her deceased parents, William Gilbert and Mary Ann Reddick Gilbert.


I found a Notley Hudson in Casey, DeKalb County GA 1850 census age 32 b 1818 with son Francis. This was Francis Marion Hudson my g grandfather b 1849 who married Mary Polly Brown in late 1870's, Mary daughter of Ezekiel Brown Jr. My father said he laid eyes on Ezekiel Brown III in early 1920's.

6 Hays brothers went from Ireland to Chester PA in 1727. Their father was Elder Hays b 1680. Born in Derry Ireland? In Laggan Scotland? Patrick Hays 1705=90? married Jean McKnight 1712-90? I think Jean was from Laggan. Was there a McAllister in her background?
