They settled in Butler County, Alabama, Nancy's father was Allen Preslar.  Some say his name was Young Hughes b. 1820 in GA. Nancy was born 8/28/1821 in Al. Young had a brother born 1814 in GA William Hughes.  We believe the Mother to be Sarah b. 1780 in S.C. and died 3/14/1853 in AL  Question:  Is Young Hughs, Hews, Hughes Nancy Presley's husband?  Who was the father of Young and William Hughes?  Was there any other siblings?

Any help is appreciated!

I am a descendant of Young Hughes and Nancy Preslar Hughes.  The info I have from a Hughes family Bible is similar to what you have listed above.  I do not know what Young's parents' names are yet, but I *think* his father was James??  maybe??  I have not verified this yet, so don't hold me to it.  I have just started to research this.  Any info you have is very much appreciated.
