You probably have all of this. The Carteret County marriage licenses below show that Mary Jane Pearsall, b. ca. 1877, daughter of George and Julia Pearsall, married Cicero M. Ward, b. ca. 1880, son of Henry and Laura Ward, in Beaufort in1906. In 1900, she was living in Beaufort with Caleb Oden, whose wife Sylvia was apparently her ex- or deceased husbandís sister. Her three oldest children, Willie, Florence and Mattie live with them. Mary J Bryant, b. ca. 1882, is a boarder in the same household. In 1920, Mary Jane Ward was living in Beaufort with her husband (as a midwife, she apparently was the primary breadwinner), with her husband and children by her first husband, Mack Goruns (Gorham), as well as son Charles, who may have been son of Cicero Ward, although the census suggests not..

Sidney Bryant, b. ca. 1872, daughter of Harry and Caroline Bryant, married Mottie M. Hester, b. ca. 1867, son of Benjamin and Jane Hester, in 1888. In 1910, she was living in Morehead City with her husband and children.

Annie Hawkins, b. ca. 1844, married Haywood Johnson, b. ca.. 1828, son of Joe and Eliza Johnson, in 1878. They had a son William J. Johnson, b. ca. 1879, who married Mary Ella Jordon in Beaufort in 1902. Haywood was previously married to Chaney ??? and had a son Frank P., b. ca. 1863.

I could find no cemetery records for any of them. The marriage licenses and census entries I found are listed below.
