My connection to Buncombe Co, NC, is through Goodman Hughes, Sr., who died in the Asheville, NC area c/a 1813/14. He had been married to Eleanor Payne. Upon his death she remarried Whitfield Bond of the same Buncombe Co., area. Goodman and Eleanor had three sons, John, Thomas and Goodman Jr. They must have been quite young when SR died as Eleanor lived to 1880, where she died in the home of her son Goodman Hughes, Jr., in Dahlonega, Lumpkin Co., Ga.
