Hi Pat: Thank you for answering my letter. The story I read was very old. I believe it was in a book of men of distinction for Clemont county, Ohio. It didn't say who the author was nor did it mention any wife. It was barely legible to read on film, but I found it quite interesting. I also read about the melungeon families who also have Denhams which I first thought were mulatto due to the "M" on the census records. Later I found out about this rare group who arrived about 1606 near Jamestown. It could be part of our family but we are light skinned with either red or auburn hair and either blue or hazel on my dad's side. Of course way back when the light and dark families often times married, and blended the colors into variations and shades. I don't know if my Hezekiah Stout Denham was a member of this rare race. He was born 1802, in Knoxville, Tn., but I don't have a clue where he grew up, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, or parents. If he came with our other families which included, Whitney's, Wheelers, Cartwrights, Gormleys, Littell/Littles, Blosser, Wells, and Wilsons, down the valley or across it, they mostly came from PA, the Carolinas, and Virginias. Yes I would like to hear what you have, as I did find him possibly in the 1861-1865 roster for Wisconsin as a Captain. He may be one inthe same. Until I hear from you again, thanks again for your help.Rose LCD
