Confusion and working together are expected traits of genealogy. Ages of Wm, Sr and Mary are very close to yours. Census are known to be wrong sometimes, so Va. Birth-state could be in error.
Iím not 100% that Wm P.ís 1st wife was Eliza.. The census was hard to read but Iím pretty sure it says Eliza. Also youngest child (son) name was hard to make out but think it was Joel C.
Happy Hunting.

Marcia Gregory lived in Macedonia Iowa. With location, ages and time of marriage, Iím betting that the Wm. Dinwiddie in 1880 census is same Wm. P. Dinwiddie married Marcia.

1880 Census, Macedonia, Pottawattomie County Iowa
49-50 Dinwiddie, Wm. age 38 Occupation farming, born Ohio
Dinwiddie, Eliza. wife, age 29. keeping house
Dinwiddie, Mary E, daughter, age 11
Dinwiddie, Sarah P. daughter, age 10
Dinwiddie, Phebe, daughter, age 4
Dinwiddie, Joel C , son age 9/12
Dinwiddie, Wm. father, age 70 born Va.
Dinwiddie, Mary, mother, age 66 born Ohio

Probable 2nd wife of Wm. P. Dinwiddie
+ Marcia Field Gregory m.. January 25, 1893
one son,
William Henry Dinwiddie, February 23, 1894 - August 27, 1926

I also have a Clara Moseley Dinwiddle, born December 22, 1869, Waterloo, Iowa, dau of James and Catherine (Moseley) Dinwiddie.
Clara is married to Hiram Kyle Devier (my paternal line). They lived in Mo. and had several children. I donít know if they connect to Wm. P. Dinwiddie.
