Benjamin HUGHES was born Jan 10, 1782 in Lunenburg Co., Virginia, son of William & Nancy (BOWERS) HUGHES. He came to the present-day Cleveland County with his parents when he was no more than a teenagedyoun man. Circumstances tend to indicate that he was married twice; First, around 1902-3 to a girl whose name we haven't found. He had a son by this marriage, Young HUGHES who probably lived with his Grandparents, William & Nancy (BOWERS) HUGHES according to the 1810 Census Records.
