Edward Hopkins Patience Coggins 11 Oct 1825 Rowan James Daniel Hy Giles
If Edwards was still in Rowan County in 1825, it means he really was in Rowan County at least until 1825, that is, it is not the case that his appearance in Davidson County in 1830 was merely a name change for the county unless he went back to Rowan County just to get his marriage license and marry Patience.  Land records could probably confirm whether Edward actually moved between 1825 and 1830.

Hopkins Pinkney 67 F W Keeping house     N Carolina
"Pinkney"?  Surely this is Patience.  "Pinkney" is a man's name, derived from Charles PINCKNEY and his son, Charles Cotesworth PINCKNEY, South Carolina Congressmen who signed the United States Constitution in 1787.  Many a southern lad was named Pinckney, primarily for the son, who was an ardent defender of slavery.  I know of no women ever named "Pinkney/Pinckney" nor any Pinckney HOPKINS in Davidson County, ever.  Listed four households from son, J. Hampton? HOPKINS, who is enumerated "Humphy."  (I did a page-by-page search of Alleghany and Jackson Hill Twps.) 

8.  1880 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #12 of 14):  "Alleghana" Twp., Davidson Co., NC, Roll T9-0961, p. 306B, PN 12, SD 2, ED 49, enumerated 9 Jun 1880, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1880 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

       "    Pacience W F 79   Mother /   At Home 12   / / / N Carolina NC NC
Surely "Saul" was intended to be "Saml."  And surely Patience is a widow.
