I have now found where my Hughes ancestors lived in Albemarle County. It was near the James River in Scottsville where the old rubber plant was located. I have also found my ancestor John Hughes who married Mary Williams Jean in the area that is now Cumberland County.

We are currently working with Family Tree Surname DNA Project and have some interesting results. We are connecting lines we didn't know before and finding out we might not connect where we thought we did.

If you know of a Hughes male descendant of the Hughes in these areas who might be interested in doing DNA, please email me at
