ALTERNATE POSSIBILITIES: (Possibility 1:  If Mary Going was consort of Thomas Hughes, and kept her own maiden name.  Possibility 2:  If Mary Going actually married Thomas Hughes, and used his last name of Hughes).

Possibility 1:  If Mary Going was consort to Thomas Hughes, she may have continued using the Going name.  There is a record from the 1850 US Census in Pickens, Alabama with a Mary Going living with the Lang family:

1850 US Census Pickens Co, Alabama with Mary Going living with William Lang family

1850 US Census Pickens Co, Alabama with Mary Going living with William Lang family

Possibility 2:  If Mary Going was married to Thomas Hughes and used the Hughes name:

It appears Mary may have been living with one child, while Thomas was living with another according to the 1850 US Census in Pickens, Ala.  The two households are just one page away from eachother in the census, so they may even be adjacent to eachother.  Thomas Hughes is living with a William Hughes, a physician.  Mary is living with J. W. Brandon and wife Eliza Brandon (likely Thos and Mary’s daughter).

Mary Going Hughes died at Pickensville, Alabama in Pickens County in 1858.  She was the mother of two, and possibly three, children, according to Fredrick M. Tucker.

(Married 1830 to Joseph McClure? – check source)
