First wife of James Charlie "Smiley" Hardin/Harden

Classification: Query
Surnames: Harden, Hardin, Morgan, Raborn
James Charlie "Smiley" Harden was a son of Andrew J Harden and his wife Fanny Morgan. He was born ca 1860, probably in Wayne Co, KY. He is living in Fentress Co, TN in 1870 and 1880.
Does anyone know the maiden name of his first wife? Her given name was Elizabeth and she was quite a bit older than him if the 1880 Fentress Co, TN is correct.

1880 Fentress Co, TN census
District 8
Smiley Harden 19
Elisebeth Harden 38
Savanah Harden 9
Ella Harden 2

Not long after the census was recorded Smiley moved his family to Kentucky. He probably first went to Wayne Co, KY as that's where he was living in 1883 when he married his second wife, Mary E Raborn. He and his family can be found in the Cumberland Co, KY census in 1900 and later census records.
