There is zero evidence that John Hughes and Elizabeth Norris are parents of Benjamin Hughes. It is highly improbable that they are his parents, as they were born in Maryland and died in Maryland, but Benjamin Hughes was born in South Carolina. He is found in the 1850 U.S. Federal Census, so he didn't die in 1849.
