Azariah definitely did not marry a Fulton (this is one of the few
proven errors in the Joel Denny letter). Her name was Sally Felton,
since she was a daughter of Job Felton (of Oglethorpe County, GA).
I've found Job's will in Oglethorpe which named Sally.
Father: Job FELTON b: BET 1730 AND 1735
Azariah DENNEY b: BEF 1755 in Albemarle, Virginia, USA
in Surry, North Carolina, USA
Surry County, NC Land Entries, 1778-1781--Ezeria Denney enters 150
acres of land on the waters of Pilate Creek, beginning at the Flower
Radeford (?) on the said creek, running both sides of the creek,
including the said improvement (no date given). Warrant granted.
Azariah settled with his wife on a land grant in 1784 on Pilot Creek,
which became known as the Martin Flinchum Farm, about three miles west
of the town of Pilot Mountain and a couple of miles up the creek from
the Hill farm where his father had lived. Azariah and his wife are
buried on the farm. The official record is: Nov 3, 1784 NC grant to
Azariah Denny 150 acres on Pilot Creek (pages 25-26 of Surry County,
NC Deed Book C.).
Wade Baker's notes on Azariah and Sally read as follows: Azariah and
Sally Wise (Felton) Denny settled lands joining the Charles Denny
grant, which later became the William Hill plantation. Azariah's lay
along Pilot Creek and Charles' land lay on both sides of Pilot Creek
where it joins the Tararat Rier (now Ararat River). (Need to research
this further to see which one of the above two paragraphs is correct.
