The first name spellings vary greatly.  There is an Onezime Vidrine in the correct county whose wife is Emily/Amelie etc.  They had a son Numa O/Luma/Nenna who married Zoe/Zoa/Ezoaway Vidrine, and that couple had a son Onegime/Orrezime/Orrains but this ones wife is just listed as Mrs.  I am just guessing by the location that this might be who you are looking for.  Just don't know which generation as you didn't provide dates.

Some of the census images can be viewed and will provide additional Month/year of birth. You will have to 'play' with the first names you enter to get all the results.
