Margaret __?__
Mrs. Nancy (__?__) ROY
Please note that I believe the Vachel HINTONs are mixed up, in part because there are more of them than supposed — there are at least seven — and that I have not got them sorted out yet.  I believe there is a possibility that the Vachel HINTON who married Margaret [HOWARD?] is not the same Vachel HINTON who married Mrs. Nancy ROY because census records show the latter to have been born after 1765 while the former was born ca. 1737.  However, other records suggest there was only one Vachel HINTON in the county at this time, so the census record may be in error.  I think we should keep an open mind to the possibility that these are two different Vachel HINTONs.
