Mother of Americus Savannah Wright

I'm searching for the maiden name of Emeline Wright, wife of Lucian Harvey James Wright and mother of Americus Savannah Wright. James, Emeline, 3 other siblings of Americus are found in the 1870 Census for St. Clair County, Alabama.

Sometime between 1870 and 1880 (likely 1873), Emeline has passed and LHJ Wright has remarried a Davidson and by 1900 have had several children (half siblings to Americus).

What is Emelines maiden name (born about 1852)? Who are her parents? What happened to the full siblings of Americus from the 1870 census?

"Alabama County Marriages, 1809-1950," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKMB-V3CX : 8 November 2017), Lucien R Wright and Ervil Pate, 01 Apr 1933; citing Etowah, Alabama, United States, County Probate Courts, Alabama; FHL microfilm 2,311,963.

But it says Ervil as first name. Worth investigating?

Unfortunately this marriage took place almost 60 years after Emeline passed. It could be her grandson though because my family did migrate to Gadsden, Etowah County Alabama in the late 1800s.

However, what really surprised me is that on the left side of that page is the marriage information for my great grandparents Homer McKinley Atkins and Annie Elizabeth Argo! How do I attach this information to them?
