I'm not sure I can help you very much. If I could get the 1860 census lookup that I requested, it might provide some answers to your questions.
With what I know today, I can tell you that Eldridge J. McCrary had a daughter, Eula (middle or other name unknown to me) born about 1862 in Bienville. Eldrigde's brother, John Colbert McCrary, had several daughters that I have been able to identify. One is named Martha (which is usually what Mattie is the nick name for). Martha A. McCrary was born in Bienville Parish about 1865. It is possible that John Colbert McCrary may have had another daughter that was born closer to 1849 that I don't know about. In order to have married in 1869-70, the female would probably have been born about 1848-52.

Sorry not to be any more help than that. If you do make a connection to the Georgia born McCrary line, I can give you more information.
