Sources (n.b., in 1840, Lincoln Co., NC, was ajacent to York Co., SC; Gaston Co. was formed in 1846 from the southern half of Lincoln Co., so Gaston is now the county adjacent to York Co.; Benton Co., MS, was formed in 1870 from Marshall and Tippah Cos.):

Phillips, S.H. Struop (sic), Joannah 14 Sep 1840 Lincoln Co.
This is presumably the date of the marriage bond or the date the bond was submitted and the license obtained.

On Tuesday evening last, by ___ Abernathy, Esq., Mr. Silas H. Philips, of Union S. C. to Miss Joann Stroup, of Lincoln N. C.

Tuesday last was the 22nd, so this was likely the date of the wedding ceremony, which may have been held in York Co., SC.

2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, and I really looked.  I can't find Joanna's mother, Widow Catherine STROUP, either, so there's a good chance Catherine was already living with them and the whole household was missed by the census.
