Here is a page of the 1870 U.S. Census.  And, also, two “highlights” of that page.

 

 

1870 U.S. census, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, population schedule, Northwest, p. 13 (penned), p. 7 (stamped); digital image, FamilySearch (http://www.familysearch.org : accessed 13 July 2018); citing National Archives microfilm publication M593, roll 600.

 

Do you see the information that is provided with the King family and the Wail family?  (Keep in mind that the census was enumerated in June 1870.)

In the King family, it is noted in the census that William and Mary were married in May of 1870 (really entered in wrong column – I doubt that they were both born in May of 1870).

In the Wail family, it is noted that Edward and Adeline married in May of 1870 (really entered in wrong column – I doubt that they were both born in May).  And, it is also noted that the daughter, Elizer, was born in August of 1869.  Be careful!  Could it be that both marriage and birth happened in 1869?

Further checking will need to be done.  Even so, this may be more information than you have on these couples.  So, the 1870 census will still be of help.
