Peterson/Page/Lea surnames of Caswell Co., are they connected to one another?

Polly Peterson married Vincent Peterson on 19 May 1821 in Caswell County North Carolina, Richmond District. I have no idea if they were cousins or simply shared the same surname. I did see where the witness for the marriage was Noah Page.

On 22 March 1819 Elizabeth Lea married Samuel Paul and the witness was Vincent Peterson. I wonder if there is a family connection with Peterson and Lea?

On 10 Januar 1820 Susan Peterson married Noah Page, and Benjamin Dameron was the witness.

Susannah Peterson married Edward Morton on 3 July 1825 and John Lea was the witness.

On 7 March 1825 Blanche Peterson married David Hall and Freeman Hubbard was the witness.

My above ancestors Polly and Vincent Peterson did have a daughter (my ancestor as well) by the name of Blancy/Blanche Peterson, and I wonder if the Blance Peterson who married David Hall could be the sibling of either Vincent or Polly Peterson?

I have just started researching the Peterson families of Caswell County and really have no other information. It's interesting researching this family, as when 2 ancestors have the same last name, one never knows who belongs with whom at this point.

Thank you,
Dennis Doughty
