Who was Nehemiah Moxley's (1738-1736) wife?

Does anybody have any idea who was Nehemiah Moxley's wife? There seems to be conflicting information as to whether he married Elizabeth Norwood, daughter of James Norwood around 1760 or after 1774 or whether it was his son Nehemiah, Jr. who married her. A marriage license was issued in 1794 for a Nehemiah Moxley and Elizabeth Norwood in 1794. Nehemiah's son Ezekiel was my ancestor so I want to who his mother was. The Moxley family tradition has Nehemiah, Sr. married to Elizabeth Norwood, daughter of James Norwood whose plantation was purchased by Nehemiah, Sr. in Frederick County, MD in 1786. What documentation aside from the 1794 marriage license exists for his wife's name or for the 1786 land purchase?

Thanks,

Chuck Owens
