Looking for the Drayton and Hughes connection.  Franklin Drayton Hughes was the son of Cader Hughes who lived in  St Andrews Parish, South Carolina.  His mother is listed as Anna Jane  Gore Drayton. They lived at Magnolia Hill Plantation. I am looking for verification of Anna Janes connection to the Drayton family.  The name of Drayton is a given name several times in the Hughes family tree.

Birth date for Franklin Drayton is 1838.  He married Charity Ann Grissette and are listed as residence in Horry County , South  Carolina.

Franklin Drayton Hughes was born on 24 Nov. 1837 in Horry County, SC. His father was Cader Hughes and his mother, Anner Jean Gore. Anner was born on 6 Dec. 1814 to William h. Gore and Dorcas Ann Conner in Columbus, NC. Franklin Drayton and his family lived on Magnolia Hill Plantation in HORRY County. Magnolia Plantation is located in Charleston County inside of St. Andrews Parish and is the family home of the Draytons.

Thomas Drayton and his wife Ann arrived from Barbados to the new English colony of Charles Towne and established Magnolia Plantation along the Ashley River in 1679. Thomas and Ann were the first in a direct line of Magnolia family ownership that has lasted more than 300 years and continues to this day.

His son John Drayton founded Drayton Hall Plantation just to the South of Magnolia.

There is no apparent connection between the Draytons and your family other than the name and the simularity of the plantation names.

I have extensive records on this matter if you would like me to forward them to you.

I wish I could have had better news for you.

Sincerely,

Grant Mishoe
