Since she was listed as 46 in 1920 - let's assume he was close to her age or a little older - which means he would be listed in 1880 census.
Have you looked for a marriage certificate for them? It might name his parents.
Have you looked for a death record - that might also indicate something - names of parents...place of birth including county,
Did he serve in WWI? See if there is a military record for him.
Did he belong to any fraternal - or masonic organizations - local churches on LI?
Was there an obituary at his death?
If that is impossible - then you have to do some detective work - there are about 6 Charles A. Scott's listed about the correct age (assuming the close ages between the two) in VA in 1880.
You would need to cross check them - and see which disappear from VA.
One question - was he mulatto?
There was only one mulatto Charles A Scott in VA in 1880.
This of course assumes that he is in census as Charles A - and not simply Charles Scott - there are quite a few of those.
It isn't impossible.
