William Green & Elizabeth Sanford married Mar. 18, 1824

In searching the database "Kentucky Marriages to 1850" on, I located a marriage in Woodford County between William Green and Elizabeth Sanford dated 3/18/1824.
Can anyone supply me with any information regarding this couple?
I am looking for the parents of my gggrandfather, James Edward Green, who was born in KY on Nov. 25, 1831 (or 1834). I do not know his father's name, but his mother's first name was Elizabeth (although she sometimes was called Eliza). Sorry, I don't know her maiden name.
Elizabeth was born in about 1804-1805 according to several census comparisons and was widowed BEFORE 1860 when she was found living with her son and daughter-in-law, Sarah F. Byrns(Byrnes) in Audrain Co., Missouri.
So, I am trying to locate information on ANY Male Green who married an Elizabeth during the period from about 1820 until 1834 in Kentucky. A daunting & time consuming task, I have found.
It is possible that the above Elizabeth Sanford was a daughter of a James Sanford. He is the only Sanford listed in the 1810 or 1820 Woodford Co. Census. In the 1820 Census Index, I have found only three GREEN heads of household listed: Martin, Sarah and William.
Both families appear to disappear from the area following the wedding in 1824. No Sanford families are found in the 1830 or 1840 Census Index and the only Green families are headed by Paul, Isaiah and Mary.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
