I am so glad to learn that you, too, are searching for information about this couple. They are my husband's paternal 3rd great grandparents. I have been searching for more information about them for a year and a half. I have learned that James was born 5 Nov 1762 in either PA or VA. Some accounts say he was an Indian Scout during the Revolutionary War.

There is information about Evan Hughes, their son, on the Hughes database. I'll have to check for the correct address.

Francis Hughes of IN and FL is also tracing this line.

I live in NC so can do some checking about Catherine's family. I have gathered some data about them already and I will gladly share. After Christmas I'll prepare a file to forward to you re: all I know about them and perhaps we can collectively develop some new leads. I'm thrilled to know that someone else is looking!
