I've found a lot of conflicting info regarding Elizabeth Kinchen of Isle of Wight, Virginia.She is the daughter of William Kinchen and Mary Elizabeth Ruffin.
Some sources have her married to my ancestor John Exum (1695-1775 of Isle of Wight, VA and Edgecombe, NC).Others have her married to his brother Joseph.I have found no solid evidence to either claim.I know for sure that John Exum's wife was named Elizabeth, but I have no proof, other than a bunch of amateur pedigrees that contradict other amateur pedigrees, that this is Elizabeth Kinchen.
I wouldn't throw out the possibility that John and Joseph are the same person--John has at least five children; Joseph only has one.
Does anyone have proof (wills, marriage records, etc.) as to which of the Exum brothers Elizabeth Kinchen married?
