36. Margaret "Peggy" HADEN1 was born about 1755 in Virginia.1,43 She died on 12 September 1818 at the age of 63 in Giles County, Tennessee.1
I doubt that she was 6 when she married. Either birth year of 1768 from Irene Cook or marriage date is wrong. Information indicates her son Benjamin b. 1776 in Rowan Co; he married 1797. I believe her birth year should be much earlier.

Margaret "Peggy" Haden born 1 Jan 1755 - quite possibly an estimate but 1755 would be more likely.
