Sources (n.b., Lawrence Co., OH, and Massac Co., IL, are both on the north bank of the Ohio River):

1.  Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, 17631900 (online at the Illinois State Archives web site):
COMPTON, ELI DUNGAN, MARGARET J 1855-08-22 OMB, p. 16 Massac Co.

2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Eli CUMPSTON (æ 17, b. OH) is living in Aid Twp., Lawrence Co., OH (p. 346B), with his parents, Joseph CUMPSTON (æ 51, b. VA) & Polly (æ 51, b. OH), plus siblings.  Margaret J. DUNGAN (æ 15, b. IN) is living in Massac Co., IL (p. 238B), with her parents, Benjamin DUNGAN (æ 47, b. KY) & Margaret (æ 44, b.

3a.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #8-9 of 15):  Pellona P.O., "Township 15 S R 6 East" [= T15S.R6E], Massac Co., IL, Roll, pp. 872-873, PN 76-77, 570/570, enumerated 29 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Eli Cumston 24 M   Tenant     Ohio
Mary M Cumston  1 F         Illinois
I see no obvious genealogical relationship between our subject and Lavinia (BAILEY) CLARK.  I suspect Widow CLARK was simply taking in boarders to make ends meet.

3b.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Margaret J. CUMPSTON (æ 23, b. IN) is living in T15S.R6E, Massac Co., IL (p. 876), with Eli's first cousin, Enos CUMSTON (æ 34, b. OH), and his family. 

4.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Eli or Mary.  Margaret has remarried and is living with her second husband.
