I am looking for information concerning the father and children of one George Marley who was born about 1876, a son of an unknown Mr. Marley and Ellen Elizabeth Riddle.George Marley and his younger sister Lucinda were children of the aforesaid Mr. Marley by Ellen Elizabeth Riddle; he had another wife, name unknown, and brought to his marriage with Miss Riddle a young son named William Jefferson Marley.
The father of George, Lucinda, and their half-brother William Jefferson Marley was dead by early 1880 or so.Mrs. Marley then married a man named Dougal McMickle and had seven more children.They all lived in and around the counties of Medina and Atascosa in Texas.Lucinda, whose married name is unknown, died in 1963 at Beeville, Bee County, Texas.
George Marley died in 1910 and was buried at the Old Griffin Cemetery in Big Foote, Texas.It is not known when Judeta Brooks Marley died.They had two children -- Nellie born about 1898 and Ada born about 1899.
Any clues welcome.I wonder if the elusive Mr. Marley may have been a descendant or relative of Benjamin Marley and Lydia Bray who had at least 3 children who moved to Texas -- Eli, Jesse, and Rachel.There was a William J. Marley who had a land certificate on file in Medina County, no date available.
