It's so frustrating, isn't it? Rather than even try to figure it out, I am just going to list some of the names which seem to fit. We have to keep in mind that women bore children over a longer period back then, getting married any time after the age of 16, and no birth control until nature took its course! And you are right that multiple marriage is a real possibility. Anyway, here goes:

Abner Settle m. Isabella Hixon 1835
Abner Settle m. Mary Ann Kile 1839
Eliza Settle m. Robert Cunningham 1829
M.L. Settle m. Julia Ann Davis 1849
Matilda Settle m. Richard Trenary 1834
Philip Pendleton m. Virginia Tutt 1838
Benjamin Wigginton m. Mary Brooks 1849
Sarah Wigginton m James Bagent 1849

It is so dangerous to make too many guesses. But all these dates appear to cluster together. So if I had to guess, I might say that your ancestor may have lived outside of Loudoun, or in Cameron Parish of Loudoun County. Then at some point around 1829, some relatives may have moved over to Shelburne Parish.

Nothing appears to fit at first glance. Anyway, if I can look anything else up, I would be more than happy to do so.
