In the marriage listing on the Randolph County, Georgia GenWeb site, there is a marriage between Charles W. Railey and Sarah "Nicly" on 2/9/1843. Does anyone know the names of Charles' parents and siblings?

My gggf, Benjamim M. Raley supposedly had a brother named Charles W. Ben lived in Randolph County in 1840. I believe the last name of the Sarah who married Charles W. Raley may actually have been "Neely." I have not found the surname "Nicly" in census records in 1840. The "Nicly" could have been a typographical error, or perhaps the original document was difficult to read.

I have a copy of a court document that Ben Raley signed in 1840 in Randolph County, Georgia. Another signer of this document was a George P. Neely. George Neely is also in the 1840 Randolph County census.

I have not found a Charles and Sarah Raley in the 1850 census that would have been this couple, based on Charles' approximate age (b. bet. 1815-1820.)

If anyone has any information about Charles W. Raley and Sarah (Nicly) Neely,I would appreciate your sharing.
