Henry CARY m. Hannah WOLFENBARGER, dau/o Peter WOLFENBARGER and Susanna MUELLER or MILLER, Jun 1796 in Greenbrier County, (W)VA.

I am looking for any information about Henry CARY’s parentage or about the children of Henry and Hannah. I currently know only one of their children, as follows; were there more? Does anyone recognize the marriage information below?

their child:       
James CARY, b. 1799, Virginia, d. 1872, Prob. Kanawha County, WV, bur. Cary Cemetery, Nitro, Kanawha County, WV, m. Elizabeth “Betsy” GREGORY, dau/o James GREGORY and Eleanor or Elliner DYCHE or DIKES (b. 1789, Virginia, d. 17 Nov 1871, Prob. Kanawha County, WV, bur. Cary Cemetery, Nitro, Kanawha County, WV), on 2 Sep 1817 in Greenbrier County, (W)VA

From The Journal of the Greenbrier Historical Society, V. III, No. 5, 1979:
“Early Greenbrier Marriage Records” (I only have two pages out of this article; if anyone has access to this issue I would gladly pay for photocopies of the whole article, as it is arranged by male surname and I realize now I might benefit greatly from looking through the female surnames)

Male CARY marriages:
CARY, Henry and Hannah WOLFENBARGER, June, 1796, by John Alderson. [above]
CARY, James and Elizabeth GREGORY, September 2, 1817, by Josiah Osborne. [above]
CARY, Cyrus and Polly ARBUCKLE, July 22, 1824, by John McElhenny.
CARY, Philip and Mariah GREGORY, September 11, 1825, by Joel Burgess.
CARY, William and Ophelia MATTHEWS, April 2, 1828, by John McElhenny.
CARY, Robert and Frances MATTHEWS, April 30, 1835, by John McElhenny.

One female CARY marriage from GREGORY page:
GREGORY, Edward and Nancy CARY, February 6, 1816, by John McElhenny.

How many of these CARYs are children of Henry CARY and Hannah WOLFENBARGER? Are the GREGORYs mentioned related?

Please post or email with any information on these families.
