In the above link, you stated that Benjamin Ezell had 4 brothers. According to you, the Ezell boys were: Benjamin Ezell born about 1811 in Georgia Henry Ezell John Ezell William Ezell Lewis Ezell
Would you please share your source for this information? Do you know any more about these brothers? Their dates and place of birth for example? Do you have their birth, marriage, or death records or military records? These may yield useful clues and even possibly the names of their parents. Genealogy forums can help you find missing information, but if you already have it - great! It's important to share it.
Would you also please post any other information you have on Benjamin. Thanks.

Do you have the original of the marriage record, above? If so, does it state additional information? Usually originals have more information than shows in the online transcription.
Do you have a copy of Benjamin's death record?
Do you know, is this your Benjamin, below? In 1840 "your" Benjamin should be 29. [also posted on the link above]
1840 Walton, Florida Territory Benjamin Ezell household 1 man age 20-29 2 women age 20-29 2 boys under age 5 1 girl under age 5 Total "free white persons": 6
All three children are under age 5, so it's possible they are all children of Susan.

Posting the whereabouts of Benjamin in each census year can help in the search for his parents (sometimes a person's parents are found in the same area, or even living with one of the children).
So that's a recap of the other post and a bit more...now will wait to hear from you.
