Robert and Harriet (Fletcher) Files

I have posted before on this couple, but have since discovered a bit more data on them. Robert Files and Harriet Fletcher were married 16 Apr 1855 in Allegany County, Maryland, which is just over the state line from West Virginia. More than one census has shown the birthplace of Robert and Harriet as "Virginia," which for a long time included what we know as West Virginia today. After the marriage they made their way to Oskaloosa, Iowa, where they had three children: Alice, Sarah Elizabeth (my ancestor), and George, and where they prepared themselves to travel the Oregon Trail. In 1862 they joined the Kennedy wagon train, which made its way to Oregon and Washington. Robert and Harriet settled in Walla Walla, WA, where they had two more children: John and Rhoda. I have not been able to find Robert or Harriet's parents. I would appreciate any clues.
