    In the entry of the 1809 Squatters census for Raleigh Hews, there are 2 males under 21, 2 males over 21, 2 females under 21, and 1 females over 21, a total of 7 in the group. No slaves. In 1814, Thomas Hughes has died and Raleigh has died by 1815. They were related and it is known Thomas had a wife Nancy (Agnes) Scott Hughes. It is thought Thomas was born about 1780, Raleigh was thought to be his father, but recent document brought to light shows maybe hie was brother, age of Raleigh is not known. Thomas and Nancy had 4 children born before 1809 Mary Hughes 1804 – 1880 ; Thomas B Hughes 1805 – 1828; Sarah H Hughes; 1807 – 1887; and Robert H Hughes 1808 – 1867.
