Need lookup for Riley marriage

Could someone check and let me know if a marriage is recorded in Wise Co.,TX for a James Cowart to a Margaret Ellen Riley on Aug.14, 1876.

Margaret was a daughter of a Rolley Riley and Frances Golden, formerly of Clay Co., Illinois.

Rolley would continue on to Crawford Co.,Arkansas and settle around Alma prior to 1880 when he died.

The Riley family left Clay Co.,Illinois after 1855 travelling with Edmond and Polly Golden (Frances's parents), and a cousin named Margaret Trinkle (who eventually married Collin C. Leonard of Wise Co). Edmond and Polly returned to Illinois after the Civil War.

If anyone can verify the marriage of Margaret to James Cowart, I would appreciate hearing from them.
