     Toliver's parents are not known.  The only thing new
about his immediate ancestery are some educated
     Only one document {Greenville Probate 50-42 1889}
mentions this family and relations to another known family.
It is by this that Toliver is part of the Andrew and
Obedience Hughes family of which others have written.
     Still the structure of this family is not completely
known and there are various possibilites from the records.
     Some discussion concerning the "traditional immigration
story" is included.


     Matilda is a Looper descendant and details of her
ancestery can be found in LOOPER COUSINS by Joseph Looper,
Mary and Herman Geschwind.  Her Skelton family descendants
are also found there.


     These are John R Hughes, Edward Houston Hughes and Mary
Obedience Hughes Stegall descendants.  Little or nothing is
known about descendants of Elvira Prescilla, Jeremiah,
William Robert or James Austin Hughes.


     The ancestery of some descendant spouses are noted in
this section.  Most are only parents, others go back
several generations.


     The Toliver and Matilda family history is reconstructed
from the usual record sources: census, probate, military,
and newspapers.  There is little or no traditional family
stories.   All the history after 1900 comes from the social
columns of the PICKENS SENTINEL.
     Some events are interesting and usually something bad
has happened.


     Just a few bits and pieces of information about this or
that family.


     Some blank forms and pages are left here for those
readers who want to add genealogical information or to
correct errors.
     These will be included in later editions.

     Descendants of Toliver and Matilda are numbered
consectively as they are first cited in the DESCENDANT
section.  [Future editions, if there are any, will have
descendant numbers assigned as they are discovered.]
     The general scheme is to list the children of the
eldest member of any particular family first.  This, of
course is difficult to maintain for later generations.
     The intent is to have descendants of a common ancestor
grouped on consective pages.  Example:  (3) John R Hughes
descendants are on pages 4 - 6, (4) Mary Obedience Hughes
Stegall descendants are on pages 4 - 9.

     Spouse numbers use the same consective number of the
descendant preceded by an "s".  This provides a ready
reference of who is connected to whom.  Example:  (s4)
Richard Harrison Stegall is the spouse of descendant number
4 and (2s3) Sally Hughes is the second spouse of descendant
number 3.
     Ancestors of a spouse is noted by adding suffix
letters.  The parents receive "a" and "b" letters,
grandparents "c" thru "f", great-grandparents "g" thru "n",
2nd great-grandparents "o" thru "ad" and 3rd great-
grandparents "ae" thru "bi".  See Spouse Ancestor Chart in
that section for details.
     This provides "blank" spaces for future additions
without the neccessity of a complete renumbering.
     Example:  (s2s3c) Rev James W Hughes is the grandfather
of the spouse of the second spouse of descendant number 3.
Or in other words, the second husband of descendant number
3's second wife was Rev James W Hughes.
     The more common case is simply some ancestor of a
descendant's spouse, ie, (s17a) Samuel Parsons father of
(s17) Mattie Parson who married (17) Lawrence Edward Hughes.


     The traditional story of our immigration from Ireland,
as past down to me from Mrs Ora Hughes Powers (great grand-
daughter of Toliver through Edward Houston and James Luther
Hughes), who inturn received it from Mrs Bertha Hughes
Proffit (her aunt), is taken to be about Toliver's family.
     Also incorporated into her story are the names of
Toliver and Matilda's children as passed down to me from Mrs 
Eddie Hughes Harbin (sister of James Luther & Bertha) during
an early seventies reunion.
     It is simply that, as a result of the 1845-46 Irish
potatoe famine, Toliver left Ireland with his family which
included at least three brothers two of whom were twins,
James Austin 'Ossie' and Edward Houston, when the twins were
15 years old.  The other children being Jerry, Doc, Elvira
and Biddie.  Later on, James Austin moved to Texas and one
of the other brothers traveled to Australia.
     As is usually the case with the re-telling of family
stories from one generation to the next, the story has
gotten a few details changed.
     From the 1850 census {Laur 294}, it can be seen that
Toliver and [Matalda] are listed as being 30 with three
children: John R age 7, [Beddy] age 3 and [Altantes] age 4
months.  Obviously Toliver and Matilda's twins have yet to
be born.  Also both Toliver and Matilda are noted in the
census as being born in South Carolina as well as the
children.  Since the census taker did make note of other
people being born outside the United States it is a
relatively safe conclusion that the places of birth are
     The key elements of the traditional story are that
three brothers immigrated to America and two were 15 year
old twins.  The implication of the traditional story is that
they were part of a family, however, the more common story
among other family traditions is that three or more brothers
were 'seeking adventure', by choice or otherwise, in the new
     This creates two additional interpretations 1) the
teenage brothers were part of a family or 2) the brothers
were seeking adventure on their own.  Since the ages listed
in the 1850-70 censuses indicate Toliver was born sometime
around 1823 and some few years must be allowed for Toliver's
father to settle in South Carolina, meet and marry a local
woman, the latest year of immigration would be about 1817.
This does not preclude that the immigration occurred
generations earlier, as will be seen.
     There is a reference titled PASSENGER AND IMMIGRATION
LISTS which is an alphabitized listing of names, year of
immigration, source of information plus age and destination
when available.  This is an index to listings and even other
indices of immigrants from various sources.  To extract
useful information from this resource most, if not all,
Hughes listings, including other spellings, were compiled
and re-ordered by year for the period 1700-1850.
     First of all this by-year-order revealed that the same
name or group of names appear on different source lists.
Not nearly as many people immigrated as indicated by the
quanity of listed names.
     Secondly, in 1813 four Hughes men entered the country:
Edward, Lawrance James, Peter, and Thomas Hughes; no age
available and destination Philadelphia Pennsylvania, a
common port of entry and should not be taken as final
destination.  The source is a 1940 Works Project
Adminstraton project sponsored by Pennsylvania Historical
Commission {WPA #20837, refer source #9297.5} and is an
index to a lot of "records of alien's declarations of
intention and/or oaths of allegiance ...."  This particular
source does not lend itself to a readily conclusion that
these were traveling together.
    Thirdly, in 1700 three Hughes teenagers entered the
country:  Michael age 15, Robert age 15, and Griffin age 18
with the general destination of America.  This source is a
consolidation of ship passenger lists by the New England
Historical and Genealogical Register {refer source #9151}.
Although these names are from passenger lists there is still
no conclusion they are together.
     Admittedly, the last bit of information is exciting and
encouraging.  But it would be remarkable for the twins story
to survive 300 years of retelling, maybe 7-8 generations.
Of course, there are other groups of names to choose from
during the 1700-1816 period.

     From Greenville County Probate Court record apartment
50 file 42 it is stated that Toliver's oldest son (3) John R
married his (John R's) 2nd cousin (s3) Sallie Hughes
daughter of a (2s3a) Joel Hughes {1860 Pick 131}.
     Assuming that the relationship is implied through the
paternal side of the families and it is the strict version
of cousin relationships, it is evident Toliver and (2s3a)
Joel Hughes are 1st cousins and thus have fathers who are
brothers and a common paternal grandfather, (1c) Andrew
     If the 2nd cousin relation is the common folk way of
saying 1st cousin once removed, it is then implied that
Toliver and (s3) Sallie are 1st cousins.  It is then evident
that Toliver's father and (s3a) Joel Hughes are brothers
which still makes (1c) Andrew Hughes the grandfather of
     From (Mrs L ) Mary Hughes Copeland's work during the
1940-50's on this (1c) Andrew Hughes family, she cites (s3a)
Joel Hughes as a son of (1c) Andrew Hughes.  This would
indicate the later 2nd cousin relation is applicable.
     She also cites that the immigration story for Andrew
Hughes' ancestorys was three brothers but during the 1740's
and that a Charles Hughes was one of them.  The passinger
list reference does show a Charles Hughes in 1742 and 1743.
     It also shows an Andrew Hughs in 1777 with Philidelphia
as the destination and another Andrew Hughs in 1725.

     Mrs Copeland's work and the NGGJ article differ in
children names and birth years.  The census records can be
interpretted in various ways.  Among the possible children
names are John Madison and Gibson.  Both agree that Andrew
Hughes was in Orange county NC during the 1770's.
     In 1799 probate records of Caswell County NC there is
the estate of John Hughes: wife Mary, children John, Andrew,
Obedience and Gibson.  Also in this record is a note that
someone was paid to escort Gibson from the Pendleton Distict
back to Caswell county.  A Gibson Hughes appears in the 1820
and 1830 census records in Pendleton District with a son
born between 1815-20.
     There is no Gibson Hughes in the 1840 census but there
is a Sarah Hughes with the same family structure as was
Gibson's family in 1830.
     Also from Anderson county estate records for a John
Mauldin who died about 1831, there is:  wife Mary, children
Sarah Hughes, Joab, Taliaferro, James, Godfrey, Mary,
Elizabeth, Frances, Francis.
     Matilda Hughes made a rent payment to the estate of
this Godfrey Mauldin in 1864.  The "Hughs place" as it is
called could refer to either Toliver and Matilda's place or
Sarah Hughes' place.
     The "story line" for ancestory 2 is:  Andrew and
Obedience had their first son John about 1775 just before the
Revolutionary war began.  After the war they had other
children as cited by Copeland and NGGJ.  John and his family
remained in North Carolina after Andrew moved to the
Pendleton district.  Gibson visited his grandparents
occasionally eventually moving there himself.  He marries,
about 1818, Sarah Mauldin daugther of John Mauldin of
Anderson.  They have their first son and name him Toliver
after his uncle Taliferro Mauldin or possibly his maternal
grandmother's surname Taliferro.  They have two other
children, a boy and girl before Gibson dies in the late
     Toliver's ancestery becomes: (1) Toliver Hughes s/o
(1xa) Gibson Hughes and (1xb) Sarah Mauldin.  (1xa) Gibson
Hughes s/o (1xc) John Hughes and (1xd) Mary ____________.
(1xb) Sarah Mauldin d/o (1xe) John Mauldin and (1xf) Mary
[Taliferro?].  (1xc) John Hughes s/o (1c) Andrew Hughes and
(1d) Obedience [Sumner?].  (1xe) John Mauldin s/o (s9o)
Henry Mauldin.
     (3) John R Hughes and (s3) Sally Hughes are 2nd cousins
either once or twice removed depending on whether (s3a) Joel
Hughes is a son or grandson of (1c) Andrew Hughes.

TOLIVER and MATILDA HUGHES, Family history.

     Toliver was born about 1823, a grandson or great-
grandson of (1c) Andrew and (1d) Obedience Hughes.  He is at
least a first cousin to (s3a) Joel Hughes, a probable son or
grandson of Andrew and Obedience.
     In the summer of 1829 when Toliver was about six years
old, Obedience Hughes died and Andrew married Nancy Mauldin
the following year.
     Matilda Skelton was also born about 1823, the third
child of (2a) John William and (2b) Ellenor Looper Skelton.
She is also the grand-daughter of (2e) Jeremiah and (2f)
Mary Forest Looper, and old established family of the
Pendleton District.
     Matilda's brothers and sisters are: Nancy, Thomas,
Hester Ann, Andrew J, Elisha, Delilah, William F and James
Baylis Skelton.
     Matilda's great-grandmother (2l) Sarah Pharis also died
in 1829 during the Spring.
     Matilda's mother (2b) Ellenor Looper Skelton died
shortly after Baylis was born in 1840.
     Both these Hughes and Looper familys migrated from
Pennsylvania through North Carolina to the Pendleton
     Several of Toliver's family moved to Georgia during the
1830's and early 1840's.  Andrew was also in the process of
moving but died at his son Charles' home in September 1843.
     They met either through family or neighbors during
their late teen years and were married by 1842.  Toliver
began his life as a farm labourer, probably near the Fair
Play area of Oconee County.  He was a tenant farmer who
rented homes and worked other peoples' farms, never owning
any property himself.  In 1843 they had their first son and
named him John R.
      By 1850 Toliver and Matilda have had two more
children, Mary Obedience born 1847 and Elvira Priscella born
1850.  They are living in Laurens county, probably working a
farm previously owned by (2s3a) Joel Hughes.  Joel had
worked it during the 1840's but has now moved to Pickens
     They are living in the north west part of Laurens
county, probably in the Warrior Creek area.  William Wright,
a Physcian, lives four houses away and Reubin Robertson is
their next door neighbor.  Reubin is the son of Toliver
Robertson who preaches at Warrior Creek Baptist church.
John R is 7 and probably spent a lot of time at William
Wright's house, he is later known by the nickname 'Doc'.
     By the Fall of 1857 Toliver and Matilda have moved to
the northeast part of Anderson county, Hurricane Creek area
south of Easley.  Their family now includes William Robert
born 1852, Jeremiah born 1854, and twins James Austin and
Edward Houston born 1857.
     Also that year Toliver is arrested for "retailing
without a license," probably distilling and selling whiskey.
During the March 1858 court session, he pleads guilty and is
imprisoned for six months.
     John R is listed on the 1860 census as Doctor and
(2s3a) Joel is living next to Larkin Hughes, another grand-
son of Andrew, in Pickens county.
     Matilda's grandparents, Jeremiah and Mary Looper died
during 1860 and 1861.
     After the war began, Toliver went to the Anderson
courthouse where he was mustered in by James Long into the
4th Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers on April 14, 1861.
The period was for one year.  From June through December
1861 he is at Camp Pettus, Danville Virginia.  During the
winter he develops a fever and is sent to the hospital in
Charlottesville in January 1862.
     John R was about 17-18 when he enlisted at Aiken SC,
why there is unknown, on August 27, 1862, 1st Reg't South
Carolina Artilery.  He's not a disciplined soldier and is
absent without leave frequently during his first year.
Spent some time confined to jail in Charleston.  At the end
of the war he is a prisoner at Hart's Island, New York
harbor.  His records show he was captured March 12, 1865 at
Cheraw, SC.  He lists his place of residence as Pickens
District, SC, complexion light, hair dark, eyes blue and
height 5 ft 7 1/2 in.
     Matilda made a $60 rent payment to the Godfrey Mauldin
estate during October 1864.  It is known as the "Hughes
place."  [Part of the Godfrey Mauldin family includes a
sister Sarah Hughes and a brother Tailiferro Mauldin.  They
are some of the children of John and Mary Mauldin who lived
in northwest Anderson county. {1800 PEND  51, 1820 PEND 184,
1830 AND 155}.]
     Matilda's father (2a) John Skelton died just after the
war ended, about 1866.
     Late 1867 or early 1868 John R left home and went to
Habershaw county Georgia where he meet and married Amanda
Malvina Stewart, a war widow.  She was 38 and he 25, he told
the census taker he was 34.  Mary Obedience is in her teens
during the 1860's and has met and married Richard Harrison
Stegall of Easley.  They have started their family by the
early 1870's.
     In the 1870's the Toliver and Matilda household
consists of Robert, Elvira, Jeremiah and the twins James and
Edward.  They are still in Anderson County and Joel (2) has
moved next door with his children, he is a widower now.
     Toliver and Robert have made a couple of trips to
Georgia to visit John R.  John R and Amanda have had two
children, Isaac V born 22 Sep 1870 and Amanda Matilda born
Apr 1872.  About 1874 I suspect Toliver has become ill and
died.  In May of 1874 John R leaves Georgia but returns by
September.  There is some attempt to convince Amanda to move
to South Carolina but he leaves again in Oct and never
returns.  [There is no direct discussion in the probate
record as to the exact cause of this.  There is mention of
John R being in a fight with someone and warrants taken out
against him.  He must have inherited his share of the 'Irish
     John R and Sallie have been seeing each other and are
married 11 Feb 1875.  There is objection to the marriage
from other family members, some were furious.  [The reason
sited in the probate record is that they were related.]
     John R and Sallie have a daughter Talula born 20 Dec
1874 followed by Julian, William Walter, Nora I and James W.
over the remainder of the 1870s and early 1880s.
     Mary Obedience and Harrison Stegall have the follow
children during the 1870's: Fanny born 1871, Mary A 1873,
Edward W Aug 1875, James T Sep 1878.  They are living in the
east Easley area.
     Matilda Hughes attends church at Mt Olivet Methodist,
she is on the membership roll in 1876.  [The church at that
time was near the top of the hill in the middle of the
present Easley City cemetery.]
     William Robert has also started a family with Ann Elizabeth
Couch.  Isaac was born 1875 and Essie in 1879.
     The 1880s begin with Matilda living with Edward Houston
who has met and married Martha Elizabeth Mauldin.  James
Austin is also a member of the household.  They live in the
Easley area.  William Robert and Ann are next door with
their two children.  Mary Obedience and Harrison Stegall
with their family are next to Robert's home.
     John R and Sally are living across the Saluda river in
south west Greenville county.  John R has taken up his
father's livelihood by being a tenant farm-laborer and they
have moved several times during the past ten years.  The
winter of 1886-87 they are living on property owned by R H
Jacobs.  Sally is expecting their 5th child the following
March.  On Christmas day John R is called outside by Jacobs
and is accused of using fence rails as firewood.  There is
an exchange of words and Jacobs goes back home.  He returns
later and John R meets him near a branch.  During the
arguing and threats John R is shot, he dies two days later.
     John Edward Lawrence Hughes was born 13 Mar 1887.
     Jacobs is tried and found guilty of manslaughter during
the summer of 1887.  He is sent to the state prison where he
serves about 18 months.  He is fully pardoned by Governor
Richardson in May of 1889 with 'elder years and failing
health' as reasons.  An article in Walhalla Courier, 6 Jun
1889, probably states the truth:  "... It seems to be
another instance of the undue influence of wealth and high
social position."
     In Jun 1889, Sally initiates a wrongful death suit
against Jacobs for $10,000.  The final settlement is for
$750 of which $146 was for court cost and $325 for lawyer's
fee. [The Greenville County common pleas records for this
period are at the State Archives.  Refer case 11219.]
     Jeremiah may also have joined the Easley police between
1874-76 in order to help the family.  There was one refrence
to Marshalls Brown and Hughes quelling a disturbance in the
4 May 1876 issue of PICKENS SENTINEL.
     On 24 June 1892 'Town Marshal Jere Hughes' went to the
house of a black man who had had an angry dispute with
another black over a woman.  One of the men went to Jeremiah
to report the incidence who then went to the other man's
home.  No one was home so he sat on the porch to wait.  When
the man did return he saw Jeremiah there on the porch and
thinking it was the other black with whom he had argued shot
Jeremiah in the back.  He died in a few minutes.
     The other news articles from the 11 July and 6 October
1892 issues of the PICKENS SENTINEL relate the capture and
hanging of Tom Brock, the man who did the killing.  There is
also a brief summary of the trial in the July 1892 SESSIONS
JOURNAL of the Clerk of Court office in Pickens, SC.
     [Of current interest, 89 years after Jeremiah's
death, his great grand nephew through Edward Houston and
Edward Dean Hughes senior and junior, Joel Dean Hughes died
on 7 October 1981 while chasing a suspect.  Joel was a
Pickens County sheriff deputy at the time and both he and
Jeremiah were 38 when they died.  Joel Dean Hughes' name is
listed on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in
Washington DC.
     Copies of the news articles and court records
concerning Jeremiah Hughes were sent to NLEM for their
consideration of adding his name to the memorial.  In May
1993 his name was added to the memorial wall in Washington
DC and a plaque added to the South Carolina Hall of Justice
in Columbia.]
     Mary Obedience and Harrison Stegall have the following
children during the 1880s and early 1890s: Nora D May 1880,
Eula E Jun 1882, Dora A Mar 1886 and Charley Jul 1893.
     William Robert and Ann have also had other children but
only one has been identified, Julius Charles born 1896.
     James Austin is assumed to have gone to Texas during
this time.
     Edward Houston and Martha have ten children: James
Luther Dec 1880, Edward Dean Sep 1882, Tamar Jul 1884,
Matilia 'Mittie' Mar 1886, Lavinia May 1889, Fletcher
Addison Sep 1890, Bertha May 1894, Eddie Jan 1896 (a
daughter) and Estella born 1887 died 1889.
     Edward Houston was a prosperous farmer in the Liberty-
Easley area before he died on 15 Dec 1895 of 'brain fever'.
He was a prominent and useful member of the Methodist Church
(Old Mt Olivett) in Easley.  Matilda was helping Martha
Elizabeth raise the children in the 1900 census.  They may
have moved a couple of times living near the railroad at one
time and the old Dalton School another (between Pickens &
     Matilda, Mary Obedience and Harrison Stegall are listed
among the founding members of Rock Springs Baptist church in
the 1890s.  The church is east of Easley.
     John R's widow Sally lived for a while in Liberty with
their youngest Nora, James, and Lawrence.  She later moves
to the Pickens Mill Village to be near her daughter Talula
and her husband James Alexander McNeely.
     In Oct of 1896 her teenage son William Walter was also
killed.  The PEOPLE'S JOURNAL of 8 Oct, reports that a John
Harper and Walter were involved in some kind of dispute
which turned violent.  The court record does not provide any
additional details and only reveils a not guilty verdict in
Harper's manslaughter trial.  Listed among the State's
witnesses is Mrs Mary O Stegall, Sallie's sister-in-law.
     In a later issue, 2 Nov, of the JOURNAL Sallies thanks
her friends and neighbors for their support during this
tradegy.  "Dear friends and neighbors you have my thanks for
the help you gave me in my dear boy's burial, and the
sympathies extended to me.  The Lord has said He would bless
a cheerful giver, and He will.  May the Lord bless you all
for the sympathies extended and assistance rendered.  Mrs
     Matilda Skelton Hughes died about 1905.
     William Robert has not faired well during the past few
years.  He gives custody of Julius Charles to James Franklin
Cauley in 1904 for the purpose of providing proper care and
education for his youngest son.
     William Robert Hughes died 14 July 1915.  The 5 Aug
1915 issue of the PICKENS SENTINEL contained the following
article, "Deaths in Easley."  Part of which is 'Robert R
Hughes a well known citizen of this county died in the
Greenville hospital from Bright's disease on 24 Jul ... He
is survived by his wife and several children by a former
marriage ... "Bob" was a member of the Hughes family who
once lived near where the present graded school building in
Easley stands.  One brother, Dock, was killed some years ago
     Mary Obedience Stegall died 15 April 1923 at the home
of her daughter Mrs W J Sheriff (Fanny Stegall) after a short
illness with pneumonia.
     She was the last known member of the Toliver and
Matilda Hughes family.

SALLIE HUGHES, John R's widow, Family History

    The years from 1889 to 1896 remain obscure but Sallie
raised her family by some means and apparently lived in the
Pickens Mill Village East of Pickens.  Her oldest daughter
Talula married a James Alexander McNeely and they also lived
in the village.  Sallie's life was a difficult one but she
was very active in the church and must have had a lot of
     In Oct of 1896 her teenage son William Walter was also
killed.  The PEOPLE'S JOURNAL of 8 Oct, reports that a John
Harper and Walter were involved in some kind of dispute
which turned violent.  The court record does not provide any
additional details and only reveils a not guilty verdict in
Harper's manslaughter trial.  Listed among the State's
witnesses is Mrs Mary O Stegall, Sallie's sister-in-law.
     From 1896 to 1912 Sallie continued to lived in the
village.  Talula 'Lula' and James McNeely had their only
child about 1900, Charles F McNeely.  Her son Edward
Lawrence has met and married Mattie Parsons, a dau of Andrew
and Elizabeth Brock Parsons and they also live in the
     [Rev James Ambler Hughes is great-grandson of (1c)
Andrew Hughes.]
     In Sep 1910, (s2s3) Rev James Ambler Hughes' second
wife died.  Over the next few months he renews his
acquaintance with his second cousin Sallie and on 18 Apr
1911 they are married.
     Rev James Ambler Hughes is also a farmer and has a farm
near Ware Shoals on the Saluda River in Laurens county.  It
is there that he and Sallie make their home for the next
several years.  Over the course of this time numerous visits
are noted in the SENTINEL between the relatives living in
Pickens and Ware Shoals.
     In Jun of 1914 (s2s3a) Larkin Hughes, father-in-law of
Sallie Hughes, died at the age of 90.  He was a Civil War
veteran and attended many of the Old Soldiers Day
celebrations common at the time.  In Nov of 1916 it is noted
in the SENTINEL that his son Alfred K Hughes delivered a
tombstone from Ware Shoals to Pickens to place on his
father's grave.
     In Aug of 1915 Edward Lawrence Hughes and Talula
McNeely along with their familys and others visited Rev
James and Sallie Hughes.  The occassion was a revival at
which 'Professor' L E Hughes and J H Hughes provided the
music.  Edward Lawrence was musically talented and latter in
life was noted for his singing, traveling around to a lot
more revivals and other church gatherings.
     By 1918 World War I was in progress and the draft
begun.  Talula and James McNeely's son Charles would have
been about 18 and has entered the Army.  While at Camp
McClullen in Alabama Charles develops pneumonia and dies in
Oct of 1918.
     It is not clear what happens for the next several years
but apparently something has changed between Sallie and
James.  In Jan of 1926 Rev James A Hughes celebrated his
74th birthday at home of his daughter Mrs J H Wasson in Ware
Shoals along with other relatives from Pickens.  But five
years latter Sallie's brother Thomas Allen Hughes dies in
Nov 1931 and in the list of survivors is "Miss Sally
     Sallie Hughes, age 77 in 1935, was living with her
daughter Mrs J A McNeely in the Pickens Mill Village till
August of that year.  It was then that she moved to
Lawrence's home in Easley.  Three months latter she suddenly
became ill and died on 6 Nov 1935.  In the obituary she is
listed a 'widow of the late John Hughes' along with being 'a
native of Pickens county and had spent all her life in the
county.'  The survivors were two sons Lawrence Edward and
James W, one daughter Mrs J A McNeely and 16 grand-children.
Her son Walter died in 1896 so this leaves two daughters
Julian and Nora {Inez} who may have also died before 1935.
     Among the 16 grandchildren are those of Edward Lawrence
and Mattie: Lois, Katherine, Ruby, Beatrice, John W, Charles
Edward, and Glenn L Hughes.
     Talula's husband James A McNeely died in Jan of 1937 at
the age of 73.  He was known as 'Uncle Bud" and worked in
the textile industry at Picken Mill.  The pallbears were
nephews, moslty from the McNeely side but included is a
Claude Hughes.  This could be a son of Talula's brother
James W Hughes.  On the anniversary of her husband's death,
Talula wrote a memoriam:  "Just one year ago today, the
death angel came to our home and carried our loved one away.
He crossed over to be with the angel band in the Promised
Land.  How we miss you no tongue can tell since we had to
bid you farewell.  We shall know each other better when we
all get home.  Life's evening sun is sinking low, a few more
days and we all must go.  To know him was to love him.  We
are traveling to a better land; one by one we shall gather
     Over the next several years, 'Lula' McNeely visits her
cousin Mrs W Riley Nix who was formerly Betty Ann Hughes a
daughter of Sallie's brother Thomas Allen Hughes.  Other
occassions for family get togethers were dinner parties.  At
one in Jan of 1944 the guests included Mrs Mary Edens, Rev
Shirly McNeely (James Alexander's father), Mr & Mrs L E
Hughes and Mr & Mrs Gilbert Martineze.  In Mar of 1944 Mr &
Mrs L E Hughes along with a grand daughter, Jo Ann Phillips
(Ruby's), celeberated Lula's 70th birthday.
     Talula Hughes McNeely died on 6 Sep 1948 after two
years of declining health.  Her brothers, Lawrence and James
W, and several neices and nephews were survivors.  She along
with her mother Sallie and husband and son are buried in the
Sunrise Cemetary on Cedar Rock St East of Pickens near the
Pickens Mill Village where they lived.


     After Edward's death in 1895 his mother Matilda moved
in with his wife Martha Elizabeth and the kids.  One
possible location for the home is the house on the cornor of
1st Street and Main in Easley, near the Colony Movie
theater.  [This comes from someone else's genealogy work and
is not confirmed.]
     On Sunday 21 Jun 1903 the first of the kids to marry,
James Luther, married Della Dorr.  Della is the daughter of
George William and Nancy  Singleton Dorr.  Mrs G W Dorr is
the daughter of Rev W B Singleton.  Their chldren are Alma,
Ida Della, W T, S G, Alla and Emma.  Alla married a W L
Gilstrap, Emma married a W A White.  Alma first married a
Pritchard and after he died married Andrew Parsons.  This is
the same Andrew Parsons whose daughter Mattie married Edward
Lawrance Hughes son of Sallie and John R.
     The reverand who performed the marriage of James Luther
and Della was Rev John William Sheriff.  He was the husband
of Fannie Stegall Sheriff a daughter of Richard Harrison and
Mary Obedience Hughes Stegall.  Mary O Stegall is the
daughter of Toliver and Matilda and James Luther's aunt.
     Another of Edward Houston and Martha Elizabeth's
children married on 12 Jul 1908.  This was their daughter
Tamer who married Franklin Pharoh a son of the James
Franklin Cauley mentioned in the section about Robert
William Hughes.  Rev J M Stewart performed this marriage and
after the ceremony it is reported the 'the newly wedded
couple drove to the home of J W Cauley, a brother of the
groom, where an elegant supper awaited them.'  There will be
another Hughes - Cauley marriage later.
     James Luther along with his brothers Fletcher Addison
and Edward Dean operated a blacksmith shop for a few years.
Later on he would become sole owner.  The shop was located
in a couple of places but the last was behind the Main St
stores just Northeast of the water tower.  In the 25 Jan
1912 issue of the SENTINEL it is reported that they
installed the first corn mill operated by a gasoline engine.
Part of the article states, "Will grind your corn and do
your blacksmithing while you shop.  Watch Pickens move."
     In Apr 1916 Luther had an accident, he lost two fingers
while working with a planer.  In 1922 Luther advertises that
he will trade blacksmithing work for corn and peas.  He also
reduces horse shoeing to $1.25.  In Jun of 1928 Luther has
jury duty.
     In the Spring of 1914 Andrew Parsons dies.  He may have
also been a blacksmith because in the 17 Sep 1914 issue,
"Hughes Bros of Pickens purchased the Parsons Blacksmith
shop at Liberty and opened for business Monday morning with
Dean Hughes in charge of the new shop...."  The following
spring Mrs Alma Dorr Parsons died at the age of 43.
     Recall from the section about William Robert Hughes
that the James Franklin Cauley family is living in Liberty
and that Luther and Dean's sister Tamer married into this
family.  With this connection along with Dean operating the
Liberty blacksmith shop, Edward Dean and Mary Belle Cauley
became acquaited and also marry.  On 27 Jun 1915 they have
their only child Edward Dean Jr.  Dean did not remain in
blacksmithing, in Sep of 1916 he began working for Nicolas
Construction which was doing railroad work in Westminster SC
at the time.  Dean would spend much of his life traveling
and away from home.  In Jul of 1917 he is working at a
contruction site in Spartanburg and spent a weekend at home,
Mrs E D Hughes returned with him for a visit.
     The other children of Edward Houston and Martha
Elizabeth also marry.  Fletcher Addison married Clovie
Gilstrap.  Clovie is a grand daughter of George and Nancy
Dorr through their daughter Ellie who married W Lawrence
Gilstrap.  She had at least one sister, Grace, who married a
     Lavina married Rev Charles W Nalley a son of George
Burdine and Emma Burns Nalley.  Charles has the following
brothers and sisters:  Thomas B, Samuel J, Walter, G Henry,
Frank K, Luther D, Paul, Mrs Alma Newton, Mrs Annie Newton,
Mrs Pearl Watson.  Thomas B was a state senator.
     Mittie married William Eli Grant.  Myrtie married
Julius Charles Hughes, son of William Robert.  Bertha
married Charles O Proffit.  And Eddie married Arthur Harbin.
     In Sep of 1916 it is noted in the school news that
Luther's daughter Artie made the 5th grade honor roll.  In
the following school years Marshall, Ora, Edward Dean
Hughes, Attis Cauley were also frequently on the honor roll
list.  Artie graduated high school in 1923 and was
valedictarian.  Marshall finished in 1925 and was elected
'most studious and orginal boy'; he is also known by the
name "Mish".  Ora finished in 1928 which was the first year
Pickens High School had a yearbook.  It was known as the
BLUE FLAME then but later was changed to the GEM.  Her
graduating picture was in the SENTINEL.
     Luther's daughter Artie marrys W Marvin Gravely a son
of A W Gravely in Sep of 1925.  Marshall makes a couple of
trips to Ashville NC where Gertrude Lewis is attending a
teacher's college.  They marry in the next couple of years.
Ora marrys Charles Hershall Powers and they move to the
Utimilla FL area.

     These visits and travelings among the children and
grand children of Edward Houston and Martha Elizabeth
continue through the 1940's and on into the 1960's.
     One of the more significant reasons for visiting were
the Hughes reunions.  These were held at Paris Mountain
State Park north of Greenville, mostly, but occassionally at
the home of one of the descendants.  The only thing which
can be offered here are personal recollections and those are
best left to the reader.

EDWARD DEAN HUGHES, Senior Family History

     Dean was the second child of Edward Houston and Martha
Elizabeth Mauldin Hughes, born 6 September 1882.
     In the early 1900's his brother James Luther operated a
blacksmith shop in Pickens, Dean and another brother
Fletcher Addison worked at the shop.  In 1912 the shop was
located next to Floger Thornly and Company near SCN Bank on
Main St.  Later the shop would move next to Pickens Bottling
Co on corner of Main and Garvin and again to behind the
stores on the north side of Main St, near the water tower.
     In September of 1914 Hughes Bros of Pickens purchased
the Parsons' Blacksmith shop in Liberty after the own Andrew
Parsons died that Spring.  Dean moves to Liberty to operate
the shop.
     Dean married Mary Belle Cauley sometime between 1912
and 1914.  She is the daughter of James Franklin and Mary
Jane Jones Cauley who have been living in the Liberty area
for several years.  They may have met through Dean's sister
Mary Tamer who married Franklin Pharoh Cauley, Mary Belle's
brother, in 1908.  While working the shop in Liberty, they
have their only child Edward Dean Junior on 27 June 1915.
The first week in September 1915, Mrs E D Hughes and son
visit relatives in Greenville, the Cauleys and Barrons.
     By the following summer, Dean has left the
blacksmithing trade and becomes a mechanic for Nicolas
Construction which does road construction. The job site in
September of 1916 was in Westminster SC followed the next
year by a site in Spartanburg.  In Jul of 1917 Dean spends a
weekend at home.  The next five years are spent much the
same with Dean traveling to different job locations and
visting home occassionally.
     On 16 January 1921, James Franklin Cauley died.  In
November of 1922, his widow Mary Jane, daughter Nora, and a
grandson Ingle Barron move to a new home in Pickens, east of
the Pickens Mill on Farr's Bridge Road.  The Dean Hughes
family also lived somewhere near Pickens Mill at this time.
Edward Dean Junior is in the first grade at the Pickens Mill
school and is on the December honor roll.
     The 'new' Pickens - Brevard highway is under
construction and Dean has probably been working on it.
During Jun of 1924 there is a dispute between the contractor
and the state over payment for work done on the highway.
Work is suspended for several months.
     Again, E D Jr is on the honor roll in December 1924,
3rd grade, as well as in April 1925.  During the summer of
1926 E D Jr visits his cousin F B Cauley in Clinton.  The
next school year, in the 4th grade, he again is on the honor
roll in December 1926 and Feburary 1927.
     During this winter Mrs Mary Jane Cauley died 13 January
1927 and leaves the house to her daughter Miss Nora.  Nora
moves to Greenville to live with relatives there and sells
the house to Dean and Mary Belle Hughes.  E D Jr continues
to be on the honor roll several months during 1927-29.  In
May of 1929 he is 'neither tardy nor absent' while in the
7th grade.
     Dean has probably been working different job sites
during these years as well as with other companys.  He is
probably working for Carrol Road Construction in 1931.  His
general health has also been declining and is easly
exhausted by over heating.  In May 1931 he is home from
Mullins SC where he has been for seven weeks.  While home
the Cauley's and Barron's vist from Greenville.  He works
two more places before the year is finish, Taccoa GA in
August and Newberry SC in October.
     The next year was bad year for the Hughes'.  In June
1932 Martha Elizabeth, widow of Edward Houston, died and the
following September Dean became extremely ill while working
at a site in Thomasville GA.  He was put in the local
hospital and word was sent back to Pickens.  Mrs Dean Hughes
and E D Jr started to Georgia but before they went far, a
patrolman caught up with them and told them that Dean had
died.  They returned home.

EDWARD DEAN HUGHES Junior Family History

     E D finished high shool, 11th grade at the time, in
1933.  He and his mother visited relatives in Greenville,
Greer and Belton over Christmas holidays that year.  During
October 1934 E D travels to Clayton GA to visit relatives
while Mrs Dean Hughes vists her sister Miss Nora Cauley.
The first of March 1935, Mrs Dean is ill for a few days.
During June 1935, E D's cousin Ora Powers and her husband
Charles Herschel are up from Flordia and there is a round of
visitations.  At the beginning of December, Mrs Dean again
visits Nora while E D and his uncle Joel Wilson Cauley
travel to Spartanburg.
     E D has been doing odd jobs and raising chickens for
three or four years.  In Feburary 1936 he advertises: "For
Sale.  One year old cockerals, Johnson strain from heavy
layers, $1.00 each." and again in May: "For Sale.  135 white
leghorn chicks."
     During November 1938, Mrs Dean and son E D visit the
Barrons in Greenville and Miss Nora returns with them to
spend a Sunday night.  Later that month, they travel to
Liberty and Six Mile on Sunday afternoon visiting friends
and relatives.
     During 1939 and 1940, E D has become acquaited with
Inez Hayes, a daughter of Daniel Moses Hayes Sr.  She was
borned 12 November 1921 and also went to Pickens Mill School
where she also appeared frequently on the honor roll:  Nov
1927 1st grade, October 1930 3rd grade 'gold star
recepient'.  She was valedictorian of the 7th grade
graduation in May 1936.  Her family lived in several places
around Pickens: Planer St up next to the Bivens Saw Mill, on
Wolf Creek S W of Pickens, on Town Creek on present
Homestead Rd across from the Jaycee Park.  Her brothers and
sisters are Elbert, D M Jr, Leandor and Robert 'Bob'.
     During 1939 and 40, her brother Elbert was in the Army
and stationed at Fort Bragg NC.  On one occassion Inez, E D
and others travel to vist him.  In August 1940 they along
with her sister Leander and their cousin Lola and Bailey
Yates 'motored through the Smokey Mountains on Sunday.'
     In September 1940 there was the wedding announcement.
"Hayes-Hughes Marriage.  A recent wedding of much interest
ws that of Miss Inez Hayes to Mr Edward Dean Hughes Jr on 14
Sep 1940.  The wedding was soleminized at the home of the
Rev R S Wheeler.  Mrs Hughes is the daughter of Mr & Mrs D M
Hayes Sr.  She was becomingly attired in Navy Blue with
black and white accessories.  Mr Hughes is the son of Mrs
Edward Dean Hughes Sr and the late Mr Hughes.  Those
attending the wedding were Miss Aurie Hayes and Edith
Gravely, Leandor Hayes sister of the bride, Mr Dewey Hayes
and son, Mr J D Edens all of Pickens and Mr Bailey Yates of
     The following November there is shower for the bride.
"Mrs Hughes is honoree.  Mrs Garvin Clark and Mrs J D Hayes
were hostesses this past week honoring Mrs E D Hughes Jr,
the former Miss Inez Hayes.  Numerous friends called during
the afternoon at the home of Mrs Clark and Mrs Hughes was
presented many useful gifts.  Assisting the hostesses were
Miss Lola Hayes, Imogene Brown and Leandor Hayes."
     E D and Inez Hughes' first son was born 9 Sep 1941 and
they named him Edward Daniel.
     During the World War II years, E D and Inez lived in
Baltimore MD.  E D worked at the shipyard there welding
frigate ships together.  His 'test' to become a welder was
when the foreman tossed two pieces of steel plates on the
ground and told E D to make a 'V' weld.  While in Baltimore
they became neighbors and friends with the Lewis family.
     On 4 Mar 1943, Joel Dean was born.  Mrs Dean Hughes
traveled to see the second grandson and returned to Pickens
the end of April after several weeks visit.  Mr & Mrs E D
Hughes and sons returned home with her for a weeks visit.
The Pickens relatives and Nora Cauley all dropped by to see
the latest Hughes.
     The first of November, D M Hayes Sr spent a week in
Baltimore with the E D Hughes family and his daughter and
grandsons returned home with him for a two week visit.
After the visit E D came down from Baltimore, stayed a week
and then they all returned to Baltimore.
     Their third son Robert Jones was born 30 Jan 1945 and
there was another round of traveling and visiting.
     When the war ended, the family moved back to Pickens
where E D worked at various trades.  He did electrical
wiring in a lot of the country homes as well as plumbing.
At one time he had his own shop off of the Pumpkintown
highway near Trotter Hill road.  He eventually works third
shift at the Pickens Mill for several years.
     During 1947 Inez becomes involved in school and
community work.  The October Pickens Mill community fair
includes her on one of the committees.  Daniel is one of the
"Three Kittens" in a December school play along with his
cousin Frances Hayes.
     During April 1949, the E D Hughes family spent an
outing at Paris Mountain with friends from Greenville.  On 1
May 1949 their last son was born, Jerry Wayne.  In May 1950
Daniel and Joel were in a Pickens Mill School play.  Also
that year the SENTINEL had a contest titled "Who is it?" in
which a clue was given and the readers had to guess who it
referred to.  The clue one week was "There are two kinds of
current in electricity and he is one of them."  E D Hughes
answered correctly that week, D C Willis.
     In January of 1952, Mrs Inez Hughes' mother Bessie
Lafoy Hayes died after two years of declining health and
serious illness of two weeks.
     In August 1953 the Mr & Mrs E D Hughes and family spent
a weekend in Charleston incuding a tour of Fort Sumter.  E D
had been working 3rd shift at the Pickens Mill for some
years but in 1954 a new textile plant opened, Runnymede.  He
applied for a job and began working there that fall.  There
was a picture in the SENTINEL that July of the third shift
workers at Pickens Mill.
     Mrs Dean Hughes visited her sister Miss Nora Cauley in
March 1955, Nora had been ill for a couple of weeks.  Mrs
Inez Hughes had also begun working at Runnymede after their
youngest son began school in 1955.  In April 1957 she had
leg surgery for varicous veins.
     Mrs Dean Hughes becomes ill during the Summer of 1960
and died 19 July.
     Daniel was junior in high school in the fall of 1957
and he played on the football team that season.  The next
year he played in the school band and graduated in the
Spring of 1959.  He attended Clemson University and
graduated in 1963.
     The Hughes family moved to a new house on Fox Squirrel
Ridge in Jan of 1961. Joel finished school in 1961 and in
October of that year joined the Navy.  He went to San Deigo
CA for basic training and spent most of his time in the Navy
in the Far East.
     Robert also played football in his junior and senior
years in school going on to a scholar ship with Clemson
University.  His picture appears in the SENTINEL frequently,
6 Sep, 20 Sep, 4 Oct and 1 Nov 1962 when he was named to the
Shrine Bowl.  E D and Jerry with Clifford and Mike Dodgens
travel to Charolette NC to watch him play in the Shrine
Bowl.  His signing with Clemson appears in the 20 Dec issue.
The post season pictures include the 21 Feb 1963 County All
Stars and 23 May Awards banquent.
     Also the SENTINEL carrys a column of IN SERVICE about
men in the military.  In the 20 Sep 1962 issue, Joel
completes radio school and is assigned his first ship,
traveling to Japan for the first time.  In Jan 1965 his ship
receives a performance medal and Joel also gets a medal.
Later in Jul of the same year he crosses the equator and
becomes a shell back after undergoing the traditional
initiation. The next year in 1966 he is again in the IN
SERVICE column for promotion to Radioman 2nd Class.  In Nov
1967 he receives another medal for exceptional performance.
     Jerry is a senior in 1967, his science fair project
recieves an award.
     Robert has left Clemson and joined the Army, his
picture now starts to appear in the IN SERVICE column.  In
Sep 1967 he is in Alabama and while home for a visit he and
his uncle D M Hayes go to where archealogist are digging up
old Fort Prince George.  There they find a dog trapped in
one of the ditches and help him out of its predictament.
     Joel is promoted to 1st class in May 1968.
     In Apr 1969 Daniel recieves his Doctorate degree from
NC State in Mechanical and Areospace Engineering.
     Jerry spends two years at Clemson but also joins the
Navy in Oct 1969.  During 1970 he was in Memphis TN where Mr
& Mrs E D Hughes visit once.  Through 1975 he is stationed
in Virginia Beach VA.


     The possible connection is with Edward H Hues {1830
Pick 263}.  This connection is based only on useage of given
names for the sons.  From estate probate records in Oconee
County {Bundle-Packet, 3-25, 4-37, 16-179, 21-231, and 39-
422} it is learned that Edward H Hues died in 1869 and his
wife Aseanieth died in 1870 before settling her husband's
estate.  This along with two predeceased sons leaving
grandchildren of Edward as heirs generated a lot of records
thus much is learned about this family.  Edward was also
predeceased by one daughter and possibly one son both of
whom left no children.
     Record 39-422 concerns a partition of real estate
wherein the 5 children and 8 heirs of Edward H Hues are
named.  All the children, widowed daughter-in-laws and
grandchildren can be accounted for except one son born
between 1820-25.  Paragraph 2 of the record begins by naming
the remaining 3 daughters and their husbands and what can be
assumed to be the 2 sons, "--E I Hughes, William Frances
Hughes, and ...", followed by heirs at law of the deceased
     This connection is critical on three points.  1) I's
and J's in handwritten documents during this period of time
are very similiar and sometimes interchangeable.  Also heirs
at law of one of the sons are Elizabeth Jane (E J) and her
infant son William Frances Hughes.  2)  Usually one son is
named after the father thus the 'E' of E I may be for
Edward.  3) Two of Toliver's sons named their first sons
Isaac and using a phrase extracted from the Greenville
probate record {50-42} "His father's [meaning John R's
father] was named Tolliver, at least that was the name he
went by, ...", can imply that 'Toliver' was a nickname of
Edward Isaac.
     The previously quoted phrase from Edward H Hues' estate
records can be either "Elizabeth Jane [and her son] William
Frances, heirs at law" or "Edward Isaac Hughes and William
Frances [sons of Edward H Hues].  The deciding factor will
be finding some document which reads "Edward Isaac Hughes
also known as 'Toliver'", the probability of which is slim.
     To complete this connection, Edward H and Joel (1) must
be brothers with an unknown father [John or Moses or other
family using bibical oriented names].  And again, Toliver
[Edward Isaac] son of Edward H and Joel (2) son of Joel (1)
supports the 2nd cousin relationship of John R and Sallie.
