It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Toliver by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Thanks for the information. I have been looking into the John -vs- Gibson issue as well. In some accounts I have seen Andrew-->John-->Gibson-->Tolliver. Also, a son of Tolliver, John R. "Doctor" Hughes was my Second Great Grandfather. Accounts say that his wife, Sarah "Sallie" Hughes was the daughter of Joel Hughes (Andrew-->Joel-->Sarah), and that she was the second cousin of John R "Doc".
I agree that our Tolliver Hughes should be merged and I propose that we add John R. "Doctor" as a child (https://familysearch.org/tree/#viewancestor&person9F8M-CF9 see attached sources)
So, the question that is left is whether John is the father of Gibson. based on the 2nd cousin/wife of "Doc". What do you think?
Hughes-3520 and Hughes-5331 appear to represent the same person because: Thanks for the merge request on Hulda Matilda Skeleton. I believe the person we have as her husband also needs to be merged. Tolliver Hughes is supposed to be the son of Sarah Mauldin Hughes, daughter of John Mauldin and Mary Martin. Sarah had a brother named Talliaferro which is pronounced Tolliver. Tolliver was used as a given name or middle name by several of John Mauldin's children and carried through in future generations, but the spelling got changed to Toliver or Tolliver instead of the original Talliaferro. Sarah Mauldin married John Hughes in 1813 per his War of 1812 pension record and he died in 1827. Some trees have him listed as Gibson Hughes and I think we could compromise on the father of Tolliver by listing him as John Gibson Hughes if that works for you. I will be glad to add the pension record I have and refer you to a written record of the family from a descendant of John and Sarah Mauldin Hughes. Tolliver also has a sister named Atlantic Hughes and 1850 census shows one of his daughters named Allanis, although she is later shown as Permelia.
