My husband's Hughes family is from the Virginia and West Virginia area and I am trying to find more information on the person I believe to be his ggg-grandfather HOPSON O. HUGHES, born abt. 1811 in Virginia. In the 1850 and 1860 census Hopson was living with his wife and children in the Northern District, Pittsylvania Co., VA. His wife was Mary L. "Polly" Hughes, I don't know her maiden name.
I assume that Hopson died betwwen 1860 and 1870, as Polly is alone in the 1870 census with several of her children. I haven't found her in any census past 1870, but I haven't really searched the census after 1870 extensively as yet.
I believe they were married before 1836 and I'm pretty sure it would have been in Virginia.
It's a long shot, but if anyone has any information at all on Hopson O. Hughes they can share, I would be very grateful.
