After finding proof William Marley of Orange County, IN is my gg grandfather, I am now searching for his father. William was born in 1803 in North Carolina and married Eleanor Simmons in Washington County, IN. They lived in Orange County had a family of 13 children. Ezra Kemp Marley was the their youngest child and my g grandfather.
I have searched the 1810 NC census and found the following Marley families: Benjamin, Bowling, Alexander, John (Randolph county), James, Henry, and John (Wilkes county).
Jim Coffey's book on the Marley families of North Carolina was most helpful. If someone has any additional information on the William Marley family I would appreciate hearing from you.
