Edwards/Holloway Marriage 1860

Classification: Query
Surnames: Edwards, Holloway, Vannoy
Does anyone know of a marriage bond between a Holloway maybe Daniel, more likely Hardin and Susan Elizabeth Edwards? It could be in Alleghany/Ashe or Wilkes Counties, NC. They produced either one child Emily Edie Holloway or a son Eddie and a daughter Emly b ca 1863 and 1864.

Susan Elizabeth's parents are Richard "Dickie" and Edie Barton Edwards. The child is with her in her home with new husband Daniel Vannoy in 1870 census in Traphill, Wilkes County, NC; but is listed as male Eddie. In 1880 Emly Holloway is in the home of Susan Elizabeth's parents Richard and Eady Edwards in Cherry Lane, Alleghany, NC. I can't find anymore about this child (or these children) after this date. Susan Elizabeth Edwards and Daniel Vannoy later had several daughters together, one of whom was named Edie Frances Vannoy, but she is definitely not the child from Ms Edwards Holloway Vannoy's first marriage.

Alleghany Cty Heritage books say Ms Edwards was married to a Daniel Holloway who died in Civil War. I can't find a Daniel Holloway that died in the Civil War, but Hardin Holloway did. Hardin is listed as unmarried in all references I can find, but I wonder if they might have married just as he went off to war?

I have fairly complete info on Susan Elizabeth Edwards and Daniel Vannoy, their ancestry and progeny,as they are my g grandparents. I just would love to know more about her first marriage and the child or 2 children it produced.
