The only marriage records in Carbon for that period would be in church records, though there may be some at Easton, since that was the county seat of Northampton which Carbon was a part of until 1843. You could also try the Lehigh County Historical Society in Allentown, they have many Carbon folks in their files from the earlier periods. Another possibility is Moravian records at Bethlehem, they had an Indian mission called Gnaddenhutten in Lehighton, although I don't know how long that mission was active. It began in the 1750's.
