Maiden Name Help

Subject: Sarah J (?) wife of John Henry Hobart
In the 1880 census she says that she is 19 years of age.
Taking 1880 and subtracting 19 you get 1861. In 1871 she would only be 10 years of age and I don't think she would be married that young.
I am figuring that this couple might have been married between 1876 and 1879 because in 1876 Sarah would be fifteen (a more appropriate marrying age) and they have their first child Emmet Benson Hobart in September of 1880. Which means they would have had to be together in late 1779.
If there is anyone in the Liberty area that might could look up this record for me just to see if it mentions a maiden name I would grateful.
