From my research, Amanda's mother was Tabitha Elizabeth West Johnson Collins. (See Tabitha and her first husband Morris Johnson on the 1850 Louisiana Census, Natchitoches Parish.) Tabitha's children with Johnson included Amanda Elizabeth, Mary A., Calvin, Sophronia A., and Richard. After Morris's death, Tabitha married Seaborn Wilder Collins, Sr. (See Tabitha and her second husband in 1860 Texas Census, Newton County.) Tabitha's children with second husband included Theodosia "Dosie," Andrew Jeptha, Seaborn Wilder Jr., J. Matilda, John Austin, and Susanna Sealy.

In the 1870 Texas Census, Newton County, Amanda Johnson Hughes and her husband Newton Hughes have two children of their own--Mary T., born in 1864, and Allen, born in 1869. Also living in their household are Amanda's brother Calvin Johnson, born 1847,and her sister Sophronia A. Johnson, born 1849. And since Amanda's mother and step-father have both died, Robert and Amanda have also included in their household in 1870 her three youngest half-siblings--her half-sister J. Matilda Collins, born 1858, her half-brother John Austin Collins, born 1860, and her half-sister Susanna Sealy Collins, born 1863.
