Elizabeth, Wife of Henry Lindsey Peyton

On page 141, of my genealogy book, PEYTONs Along the Aquia there is a conflict with the maiden name of the wife of Henry Lindsey PEYTON. We cannot be sure whether she was Elizabeth PAIN or Elizabeth BURDEN. In William Montgomery Sweeny's Marriage Bonds and Other Marriage Records of Amherst County, Virginia 1763-1800, 1937,  page 59, her name was given as PAIN: "Peyton, Henry, and Elizabeth Pain, married by the Rev. Benjamin Coleman." However, I recently encountered a death record for her in West Virginia, Deaths Index, 1853-1973, where she was recorded as the daughter of A. and L. BURDEN of Amherst County, Virginia. Perhaps the original marriage record in Amherst County, Virginia may shed some light on her true family name.
