Evaline Edwards Capps NC 1837-1880?

I think my great-great-great-great-grandmother might have been born out of wedlock. She was born 1837 and died sometime in the 1880s or before the 1880 census was taken. She married Henry Casey Capps who was born 1841 in NC, died in the 1880s or 1890s. Just can't find him on any census records last 1860. His son George Ruffin Capps is my great-great-grandfather. He was born 1878 and died 1971 in NC.

Evaline's mother was a Polly Edwards, and her father was apparently a Jackson by the name of John Jackson, or maybe that was his first and middle name, I don't know.
