I have a bit of a problem.

I have an Edwin Wright, son of Charles and Elizabeth Wright, in my family tree. He is listed in the 1891, 1901 and 1911 census as married to Mary or Mary Jane. He is the only Edwin Wright I can find in any of the Richmond County Census Records. The Problem is that I have 2 Mary Jane's who are supposed to have married an Edwin Wright. Mary Jane Langley and Mary Jane Forbrigger. The are in fact first cousins and close in age.

I have a marriage record for Mary Jane Langley and Edwin Wright for January 28, 1882 and she is listed as aged 19. This means her birth date would have been about 1863.

I also have a death certificate for Mary Jane (Forbrigger) Wright which lists her birth date as February 14, 1863.

The only information I have seems to point to them both marrying the same man (they have the same childrens names in all the records I can find), and I believe that Mary Jane Langley may have died and Edwin then married Mary Jane Forbrigger. But without confirmation I don't want to list them as the 1st and 2nd wives.

I am looking for either the death record for Mary Jane (Langley) Wright or the marriage record for Mary Jane (Forbrigger) Wright. Or the record for another Edwin Wright if such exists.
