Looking for Susanna Ellis b. 1857

Surnames: Rehr, Carey, Ellis
I am hoping someone might be able to find a marriage record for Susanna Ellis---she may be the mother of my brick wall grandfather Edgar Carey b. 1873.

Susanna was the daughter of William and Pauline (Holback) Ellis. Wm died in the Civil War (I have his pension file) and Pauline remarried, to Daniel Drum and later to someone named Rummeler. I cannot find Susanna after the 1860 census. Her sister Sarah married Joseph Rehr of Pottsville and lived in Philadelphia till her death in 1940. Sarah was supposedly my grandfather's aunt and Susanna was her only sister. Joseph Rehr had 5 sisters:
Ellen born in 1852
Clara Elizabeth b. 1856
Emily b. 1860
Sarah/Sallie 1862-1912 died unmarried
Laura b. 1866

If I can trace Susanna, I may have a breakthrough. Any help much appreciated.
