Edey/Edie/Edith Stevens/James McSweeney in Elliott Co., KY about 1870-1888

Hi,
We're looking for James M. McSweeney's 1st wife. We believe her name to be Edey/Edie/Edith Stevens. They had either 4-5 children who were born between the years ?1875-1888?.
Uncle Jim came from the Elliott Co., KY area (where he was born) to the Miller's Fork area of Wayne Co., WV in about 1887-1888. He married my gg-Aunt Mary V. Blankenship on 12/24/1888. He was abt 29 yrs. old and Aunt Mary was just 14!
I've just recently found out the Uncle Jim & Aunt Mary were 2nd cousins which explains how he found the area where my gg-grandparents lived.
Back to Uncle Jim and his 1st wife:
we've never been able to find any marriage records for them. I believe their childrens' names were:
John
James
Lida 'Liddie'
Martha
Mary

Lida m. Unknown Burton; Martha m. Unknown White.

I got these names from an obituary of one of Uncle Jim & Aunt Mary's sons - George Landon McSweeney.

In Oct 1951, James was living in Oregon; Liddie Burton was living in Michigan and Martha White was living in Portsmouth, OH. where George lived when he passed away.

We would welcome any/all information about any of these people or their descendants.
