After posting the last message I began to search further and find that Notley Duvall's wife, Sarah Belt, was indeed listed as (Mrs) in the marriage record, at least in the transcription at

I also found the following Fleming County, KY, deed transcription:
Smith Deeds - Fleming Co., KY

File contributed for use in the USGenWeb Archives
Compiled and submitted by Elizabeth Smith

Book: L
Page: 412
Instr: Power of Attorney
Date: 8 Aug 1820
Grantor: John Smith & Nancy, late Nancy Highfield of Franklin Co., VA
Grantee: John Miller of Fleming Co.
Water Course:
Comments: Smith appointed Miller lawful attorney for the purpose of emancipating a negro man slave belonging to the estate of Jonathan Highfield, dec’d. The slave’s name was Harry. Miller was also authorized to do all or any acts thought necessary & proper to be done in & concerning the premises.

Does this Jonathan Highfield fit into your material anywhere? My John Miller was in Fleming Co in 1820 so I assume this could be him. Since Mrs. Smith was formerly Nancy Highfield I assume there is some family relationship there, like she was Jonathan's daughter or widow - and apt to be family relationship to Miller since he married a Highfield. Please comment based on all the research you have done.
