Sarah Ann Mobley and father Thomas - 1850 - Morehouse Parish, LA

Trying to find someone related to or researching a Sarah Ann Mobley who was 14 years old in 1850 and living with her father Thomas, stepmother Milly, and siblings in Morehouse Parish. Her siblings were Byrd, George A., Mary Eliza (age 7), and John.

In 1860 a Thomas Mobley is living in Terrebonne Parish in the household of someone else with Eliza, age 17, so this seems to be the same man with his daughter Mary Eliza. I cannot find Milly or the other children, John would have only been 11 years old and must be living with his mother Milly in 1860. Found a possible George living in another household as maybe a boarder, but did not find Byrd. Thomas may have later gone to Texas as I found a Thomas Mobley there in 1880 with a younger man, William Mobley.

I am trying to determine if this Thomas is the husband of my great-great-grandfather's sister Celia Jones, who died about 1835 in Georgia. They had a daughter named Sarah Ann E. who would be about the right age to be the Sarah Ann with Thomas Mobley in Morehouse Parish in 1850. I think she was living with her grandparents in Lumpkin, GA in 1840 after the death of her mother, and then went to live with her father later. I am just trying to find out what happened to Sarah Ann after 1850, where she was living and maybe a married name and husband's name.
