Father of Marley Children living in the Solomon Carter Household in Rapides, Lou

1860 US Census shows 5 Marley youngsters (Joseph A., William F., Thomas J., Sarah, & Elizabeth) in the household of Solomon Carter along with other children and his second wife "Elizabeth Marley" probably the mother of the Marley kids. I have not been able to locate the Marley father whom I assume passed away in the late 1850s. Any help in identifying him would be very much appreciated.

William F Marley is my second great grandfather on my mother's side of my family. He was born in Louisiana about 1845 and married Elizabeth Hale (first wife) on 04Aug1866 in Grimes County, Texas and they had a son William Jefferson Marley born 22Feb1868 in Bryson City, Grayson County, Texas. He married a second time in 1875 to Ellen Elizabeth Riddles and lived in Medina County, Texas and had
two more children--George Washington Marley & Lucinda E. Marley. Apparently he died about 1880 and his wife remarried a Dougal McMickle and bore several more children.

William Jefferson Marley, my great grandfather, married Sara Elizabeth Lawson 13Oct1889 in Frio County, Texas and had 5 children. Their son William Henry Marley, my grandfather was born 05Aug1890 in Big Foot, Frio County, Texas.

As I stated above, I need help locating info on William F. Marley's father and finding Elizabeth Marley Carter's maiden name. Any and all info will be appreciated. Also, I will be glad to share any info on the Marleys I have.
