There were Plumleys and Dentons in Shenandoah Co., VA in the mid 1700s. They moved on to NC and TN. The Dobson surname was also in Shenandoah Co., VA.
Also a Matthew Plumley married a Phoebe Denton possibly in Dunmore Co. (later Shenandoah Co.), VA about 1762. Phoebe died in Burke Co., NC and Matthew died in Knox Co., Tn in Aug 1826. This Plumley line appears to have originated from Bucks Co., PA. The Dentons came from NY to VA and south.
Phoebe and brother,Abraham Denton, are the children of Abraham Denton who died 1774 in Shenandoah Co.
Their children are said to be: Denton Plumley/Plumlee b abt 1763 Abraham Plumley/Plumlee b. abt 1766 John Brown Plumley/Plumlee, Sr. b abt 1767 Stephen Plumley/Plumlee b abt 1769 William Plumley/Plumlee b abt 1772 Isaac Plumley/Plumlee b. abt 1776 Martha Plumley/Plumlee b abt 1782
