Hello Darla, Welcome to Wikitree and the G2G
Welcome to wikkitree Darla, you will find many lovely wikkitree members that will do everything to help you out in a kind and polite way
Thank you for your help

I think this is them in 1880 in Black Fork, Arkansas: (Missouri is with them)

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9YB3-SM49?cc=1417683&wc=QZ27-FNJ%3A1589394996%2C1589395235%2C1589396127%2C1589396018 : 24 December 2015), Arkansas > Scott > Black Fork > ED 172 > image 6 of 7; citing NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).

This suggests that they were married in Louisiana-- their oldest child was born there-- then they moved to Arkansas where the rest of the children in this census (including Missouri) were born.

I couldn't find an obvious Louisiana marriage record for them, so the next step would be to seek birth, marriage and death records of their children which might provide Mary Delilah's maiden name. Children were:

  1. Marietta (var. spellings), b abt 1867 Louisiana
  2. Prota Rosette, b abt Apr 1870 Arkansas
  3. Martha, b abt 1872 Arkansas
  4. Missouri, b abt 1875 Arkansas; looks like she married A.H. Goodloe in 1900; this marriage index suggests you might be able to find a  marriage record that mightname her mother's full name: "Arkansas Marriages, 1837-1944," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F7SN-YM6 : 12 December 2014), A. H. Goodloe and Missouri Green, 18 Jan 1900; citing Jefferson Co , Arkansas; FHL microfilm 983,324.
  5. William, b abt 1879 Arkansas
  6. Lee (daughter), b abt May 1880 Arkansas
  7. more?
(I've got to run; perhaps others can help dig into the other children for you...)
