Hi Marilyn,
Unfortunately I didn't find any marriage info for these folks in Dallas.

I did find the family in the 1870 Waxahachie, Ellis Co., TX Census.
Mary J. Night, b. KY, 37, home_____.
Mary J. Knight, b. AL, 37, keeping house.
Alice C. Knight, b. TX, 13.
Buddy Knight, b. TX, 11.
John C. Knight, b. TX, 5.
Eva Knight, b. TX, 1.
Matilda Henry, b. IA, 13.
Huldah J. Henry, b. IA, 11.
William T. Henry, b. IA, 4.
William Chochall, b. VA, 53, home carpenter.

A William W. Knight, carpenter resided at 33 Cora, Dallas per the 1878-79 Dallas City Directory.

Some of the family in 1880 lived in Dallas, Dallas Co., TX.
Mary Knight, b. AL, 44, both parents born in VA, sewing.
Hulda Henry, daughter, b. NE, 21, father b. KY & mother b. AL.
Willi Henry, son, b. IA, 14.
Fanis Knight, son, b. TX, 6.

Almost all of the 1890 Census was destroyed in a fire.

In 1900 a William and Mary Knight were living in Wellston, Lincoln Co., OK.
William W., b. KY, May 1833, marr 27 yrs, both parents b. KY.
Mary J., b. AL, Aug 1835, had given birth to seven children but four alive in 1900, both parent's b. VA.

In 1910 a Mary and William Knight were living in Wichita Ward 6, Sedgwick Co., KS.
Mary J., head household, b. AL, 75, had given birth to eight children but three alive in 1910. Both parents b. VA.
William H., son, b. IA, 40, single, father b. KY & mother b. AL, yetter? laborer?.

At least the 1870 and 1880 Census info explains that Matilda and Huldah were sisters. Successful Searching!
Fanis (son) b.
