Do you have the correct birth years?  According to the marriage records, they were married in 1864 .  From the death record, Lucy's b abt. 1843,  parents were Samuel and Elizabeth West of Hants.  It lists the page and cert #'s, maybe you can get a copy and find more.

Found more of Edwards marriage certs.  List his parents as Thomas and Hannah Dalton. The reference pages etc. are listed on two, the actual certificate might list more?
