Surnames: Hughley Gilmer

My name is Kenneth Burton, and I am doing genealogy research in the Chambers & Tallapoosa Co. Alabama area, and also the West Point Georgia.

My great-great aunt was a lady named America Hughley. the Earliest document I have of her (that I am sure about is a marriage record Jan. 1870 from the Chambers County courthouse of her marriage to a man named Sheppard Gilmer. The are both listed as colored.

On the 1870 Chambers County Alabama Census, America and Shepard Gilmer are listed as black.
I do have subsequent Census records;i.e 1900, 1910, 1920 where she is using her maiden name.

She died Mar 12, 1931 at the age of 80 years. Our oral family history is that she was Native American, but I cannot find any other documents with this sir name. One of her nephews, a man name Zeke Hughley was living in the Nash Township, Muscogee County Oklahoma during the 1920's.

The sir name Miller might be associated with Hughley
