Coxey/Fouts Marriages

I have George Coxey as the son of Absalom Coxey of North Carolina. I've found George on several Census records with the same birth date 1801. There is a second George A. Coxey whose parentage I do not know, although I'm convinced he is related. George A. Coxey was born in 1823 according to at least two census records so he could be a nephew of George Coxsey and a Grandson of Absalom. He lives near my Solomon Fouts throughout Census records. Although, I have found several census records for this George A. Coxey, I have no way of putting him in my records. I don't how to tie him in. He married Martha Cromwell. His children are Elizabeth, Partelia, Andrew, John, Nancy, Mary, James and Alice. In 1850, George A. Coxey is found in Murray County, GA. In 1860, he's found in Polk County, Tennessee. And I haven't looked for him after that because I don't know who he is. Also, very interesting....I have a John T. Coxey who married Emaline Fouts (daughter of Solomon) on 27 June 1867...she was 16. She is living back in the home of her father in 1870 as Emaline Coxey. Then goes on to marry James Hale about 1881 and Henry Bray in 1890. Mary Jane Fouts (daughter of Solomon) married James Anderson Coxey on 20 January 1859 - These are my 2nd Great Grandparents. Anyone interested in figuring this all out??? It's driving me crazy!

1. GEORGE4 COXEY (ABSALOM3, JOHN2, UNKNOWN1) was born 1801 in North Carolina. He married NANCY MURPHY. She was born 1803 in Tennessee.
