Hughes, Warren, Hawkins families from Todd county, KY to jersey county, IL

I am researching the family lines of my ggg grandparents, SAMUEL HUGHES and JEMIMA WARREN. I do not know the names or history of either of their parents, but have lots of info. on Samuel and Jemima, as well as some of their siblings.

Samuel and Jemima married in Todd county, KY in 1826. By 1836 they were in Jersey/Greene county, IL buying land. Samuel's brother JOSEPH HUGHES also married in Todd county, KY to an ESTER ROLSTON. They married in 1828, and ended up buying land near Samuel and Jemima in Illinois in 1836. JOSEPH HAWKINS married NANCY ROLSTON in 1824 in Todd county, Ky and bought land near the HUGHES BROTHERS in Illinois in 1836. Joseph Hawkins oldest known daughter, Sarah Caroline Hawkins, married a John W. Hughes in Macoupin county, Illinois in 1850 and the two eventually moved to Lamar county, TX and lived next door to the widowed Jemima Warren Hughes and her children. Samuel Hughes died in Jersey county, Illinois in 1844 and Jemima went to Texas soon after.

Jemima Warren's younger brother, STEWART B. WARREN married PATSEY RUTHERFORD in 1835 in Greene county, IL, which is next to Jersey county. They also were living in Lamar county, TX, near sister Jemima Hughes in the 1860 and 1870 census. Many of Stewart Warren's descendents remained in Lamar county, TX.

I have some other families I can connect to these in Kentucky and Illinois, but the above are the main ones. I want to find out all I can about the above Hughes, Warren, Hawkins,Rolston lines, especially the parents of Samuel and Joseph Hughes and Jemima and Stewart Warren. All info. pertaining to these four families is appreciated, however. I have lots to share as well, so please contact me or post. Thanks !!!!
