Cress/McCready/Bonham Wash Co. VA

I desperately need a whole lot of help here. I sent for some death, birth & marriage records from Richmond - two they couldn't find and the other one may or not be what I am looking for.

CERTIFICATE OF MARRIAGE
DATE: March 29, 1883
PLACE: Washington Co., VA
NAME GROOM: Andrew S. McCready
RACE: White
AGE: 32
SINGLE
BIRTHPLACE: Smyth Co. VA
RESIDENCE: Washington Co. VA
PARENTS:James & Susan McCready
OCCUPATION: Farmer

BRIDE: Eliza Jane Cress
RACE: White
AGE: 25
SINGLE
BIRTHPLACE: Washington Co. VA
RESIDENCE: Washington Co. VA
PARENTS: Cress - no other names given

According to Eliza's age - she would have been born in 1858. My Eliza Jane Cress was born 19 Feb 1858 in Smyth Co VA(d/o Josiah Cress) and, I thought she married Joseph Bonham in Smyth Co.

The person that sent me the notification that they could not find birth of James Bonham wrote that she found births of R.L. (male) b:1885; Mary V b: 1888; Laura b:1890; Carrie b: 1890. These are children of Joseph M. and Eliza Jane Bonham.

If anyone can help me straighten this out I would really appreciate it.

Thanks
