. Ref: 1. Dwayne A. Hughett's website:
. Note: The evidence linking William E. Hughett of Montgomery Co, Va to this family is very questionable. Some of the
. this sites' linkages claimed for the Hughett family of Scott Co, Tenn are incorrect and apparently tacked on with no
. evidence, but just incorrect assumptions easily disproven by the census records. The evidence that the John Hewitt
. from Pa that married Elizabeth Adams and moved to Albemarle Co, Va and later to Botetourt Co, Va isn't given and
. is likely an unwarranted assumption. As seen below, there were a number of John Hughetts in Virginia, but the
. father of William E. Hughett of Montgomery/Floyd Co is likely the John Hughett living next to him in 1810.
. This site claims that William E. Hughett was born in Pa and m(1) 30 Dec 1779 Fauquier Co, Va to Catherine Edmonds.
. The evidence that William E. Hughett of Montgomery Co, Va is the s/o John Hughett of Fauquier Co isn't given and this
. linkage is highly questionable, especially since there was another William Hewett listed in Fauquier Co in 1810.
