John McMillen b. 4 Apr 1757 Westmoreland Co. PA

Classification: Query
Surnames: McMillen, Calhoun
Looking for verification on the wife of John McMillen b. 4 Apr 1757, Westmoreland Co. PA, d. 7 Dec 1837, Redbank, Armstrong Co. PA. Online family trees say his wife is Jane/Genetta/Jeanette Calhoun b. 22 Sept 1773 Westmoreland Co. PA, d. Mar 1850 Porter Twp, Clarion Co. PA.

What is the proof that a Jane/Genetta Calhoun married John McMillen?

There is also some confusion apparently on Genetta/Jenette (Calhoun, if this was in fact her maiden name) McMillen. While there is Jenette McMillen age 75 listed in the mortality schedule for the 1850 Porter Twp, Clarion Co. PA census having died in March, there is also a Genetta McMillen age 75 living with her son Robert McMillen and his wife Nancy in the 1850 Porter Twp, Clarion Co. PA which was taken 7th Sept. 1850 (can't be dead in March and still living in Sept). Robert McMillen is suppose to be the son of John McMillen and Genetta (Calhoun). We obviously have two Jenette/Genetta McMillens, which one belongs to John McMillen as his wife?

The Genetta living with Robert in Sept 1850 isn't his wife Nancy's mother either. Her name was Mary Downs Moore.

Any help in sorting this out is much appreciated.
