David Washington Underwood (D.W. Underwood aka David W. Underwood)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Underwood
I am looking for David W. Underwood. Here is what I have about him and his wife:

David Washington Underwood (generally going by D.W. Underwood or David W. Underwood)
Birth Year Estimate: 1866
Both of his parents were born in North Carolina.
According to the 1900 census (NC-->Montgomery-->Troy-->District 78) he was a Well Digger.
In the 1910 census (NC-->Cumberland-->Township 71-->District 62) he was a Minister/Pastor.
I do know his denomination is Methodist. Whether or not he was another denomination prior, I am unsure.
Per every census, he could read and write.
By the 1920 Census he was in Norfolk, VA working as a Minister.
He was a Mulatto.

Octavia Underwood (wife of David)
Birth Year Estimate: 1877
Date of Death Years Estimate: 1920 to 1930 (David remarried between these years. She may not have died. However, I think divorce was not as common in that period this is why I assume she died in that ten year span.)
Unfortunately, I do not know her maiden name.
Both of her parents were born in North Carolina.
In the 1920 census she was a seamstress, prior to this there was no job listed.
Per every census, she could read and write.
By the 1920 Census she was in Norfolk, VA.
She was a Mulatto.

Any help would be appreciated. I do not know where else to look in order to find information about him or his wife prior to that 1880 census. I also could not find him on a 1930 census.
