I have looked at both maps very carefully and do not see any Denton as a landowner in Stokes or in what part of Paint twp that is on my map 1854 or 1875. the maps show only the landowners and their improved dwellings. So log cabins are not included.
Peter Slaughter's land in 1854 extended from Stokes into Paint twp and ended near David Stroups land.(1875 map land belonging to Patterson and others southward was Slaughter land) the 1854 map show an improved dwelling in Stokes twp(2 story house which is still standing) so there was a Peter Slaughter in Paint twp also. Perhaps a son, who in 1860 had moved to the house in stokes twp. will have to check this out.
There would have been families living as tenant farmers or farm laborers who would not show up on the maps but would be in the census records.
found a connection with Peter Slaughter and Skinner Hutson. Skinner's grandson(Cyrus Hornbeck) married a neice of Peter Slaughter. ( Elizabeth Milliner) On the 1875 map near Abraham Phiefer is the land belonging to the heirs of Isaac Horbeck. I need to check an 1862 map and see what changes happened in Paint twp.
Horbeck brothers, Samuel(Mary Hutson),Isaac, Michael and Simon.Came to OH thru KY
these are just a few thoughts.
Iam wondering if a will exists for James or Sarah Kilgore.Their children were Alfred,Deborah,Isaac, Henry and Martha.
will keep looking. there were other early Denton marriages in Madison County and I found that they might be Robert Denton's children. found in descendants of Richard Denton of LI.
