I am seeking information on John Harris Hughes b 1815 d 1862 at Port Hudson, LA. John H. Hughes married Margaret Ann Sample b 1820 Indiana & d 1874 in Howard County, AR. I am especially interested in the parents of Margaret Sample Hughes. I know that her father was John Sample b 1796 d. 1847 in Shelby County, Texas. I believe her mother was Sarah Butler b 1804 (Indiana?) d 1878 in Shelby County, Texas. I am trying to determine if Margaret's mother was a Butler or a Davis. Margaret Sample Hughes is listed with her husband in the 1850 Census of Pike County, AR. Margaret's sister, Sarah Jane Sample Shoemaker/Shumaker & their 3 year daughter is also listed as living with John Hughes & Margaret. Sarah Jane's husband, David Shoemaker/Shumaker was killed in the Mexican American War in Las Tablas, Mexico in 1847. Any assistance with this family will be greatly appreciated.
