Sorry, Rodny. there is nno such thing. but there are early stories of the marriage, even to the minister who performed it. But as to the actual day, that hasn't been recorded to a certainty. I don't know why. There are some recordings as to who attended the marriage, like two of her brothers, Nantequas and Porchins, and her 1/2 uncle, the 1/2 brother of her father, and his name was Opechancanough, and maybe another brother named Cornstalk. the exact number of Powhatan's children is not known and most of them were 1/2 brothers and sisters do to the number of wives that Powhatan had. You can find the story in many early Jamestown and Virginia Histories.
Also see the William & Mary Series #1 Index. That should help pinpoint the info you need.
There was a ship's Captain there and Captain John Smith wrote about it but I think he was back in England when he wrote it.
