An on-line ged file lists the following note:

1 NOTE Now, this is what I have on Richard Denney. He

was born 1745and died 1825. Presbyterian church records of Rumbout &

Poughkeepsie have a marriage entry for a Richard Denney and Lena

Searl. It also states that the page is torn and the name of the bride

is not clear. So I am asuming that Richard married Lena in 1770, had

one son Thomas (my line) in 1771 and died shortly after or during his

birth. Then Richard married Asenath Booth, but I have found no record

of that. I have two more children besides Thomas; Mary, born 1778 and

Jacob, born 1779. But not after looking at the two names Lena and

Asenath and thinking about the fancy early handwriting, I am

beginning to wonder if indeed Richard had two wives. It is

interesting that I haven't found any marriage record for Richard and

Asenath. Another researcher who lives in Australia says there is

another son of Richard named John, born 1775. He married Esther

Corbett. Again, nothing to go on other than the names of his children

fit into the picture. 1
