Iam looking for info on:
Ellinor Harrison who married Reuben Denton of Granville Co., N.C.
The first wife or wives of Thomas Wiggins, father of Sealah Denton (Reuben's mother) and Frederick Wiggins. Some say his wife was Tabitha ____ others say his wife was Elizabeth Cooper. I have not seen ANY proof of either.

Denton/Wiggins etc.

Do you know anything about another marriage of Reuben Denton, to his cousin (I think) Nancy Busby in Sumner Co. Tennessee in 1821? She is not mentioned in her father's will in 1830, so she probably died early and had no children.

William Busby, Nancy's father, married a Nancy Mitchell in Granville Co. in 1803. I think Nancy was the daughter of Major Mitchell and Molley Wiggins. I believe my John Mitchell of Sumner Co. TN who married Fanny Busby, sister of William, was the son of Major and Molley but can't prove it conclusively.

I also believe William Busby's second wife, Elizabeth, from Henderson Co. KY was a Denton, perhaps a sister to Reuben??

Do you have proof of a Harrison, Cooper marriage ?
eg. Wm. Cooper and Mary Harrison before Rev. War.
