Surnames: Pugh, Govan, Daves, Haynes
Mary A. Pugh, was the widow of Eaton Price Pugh, a planter of Northampton County, North Carolina. The couple had no children of their own, but adopted Mary McKinlay Jones, the daughter of Sally Eaton Daves and Morgan Jones. Sally's mother, Mary Haynes Long Davis Daves was Eaton Pugh's half-sister.

After her husband Eaton Pugh's death, Mary A. Pugh made her home with her adopted daughter, Mary and her husband, Andrew Robinson Govan of Snowdon Plantation, Marshall County, Mississippi. (Mary A. Pugh is buried there.) The will refers to Eaton P. Govan as her adopted son---he was in reality, her adopted grandson--the oldest child of Mary McKinlay Jones Pugh and Andrew Robinson Govan. Eaton P. Govan was a special favorite, as he was named for Mary's husband.

These slaves (born prior to 1835) were brought from Northampton County, North Carolina to Marshall County, Mississippi.
