Cezar's wall

I am seeking help with a brick wall in my research. I cannot seem to get further than my 4x great Grandfather, Cezar Potter and can't even be certain about him and his wife's identity. I listed 5 resources below from A-E that support him and his wife(s) identity but I'm not convinced the same person is reflected in each one. I obtained these resources from researching their daughter, Leah Potter (my 3x great grandmother). The older the records the more discrepancies I find. Can anyone advise? All comments appreciated.

A - 1859 Marriage Record from Beaufort County, North Carolina: Potter Cesar and Bisey Barnett (living together as man + wife (freed persons) for six years now, dated 1866)

B - 1870 Census, Pamlico County, NC. Caesar Potter (1835), wife Rebecca (1830), children Martha (1851), Sallie (1851), George (1856), James (1861), Sarah (1864), Mary (1866), Jinnie (1869)

C - 1880 Census Pampico County, NC. Cezar Potter (1831), wife Rissel (1832), children Lear (1859), James H (1862), Sarah J (1864), Mary E (1866), Virginia F (1868), Minny M (1870), William P (1874), Emmer B (1876), Julie W (1878)

D - 1990 Census, Beaufort County, NC> Risah Potter (1830) widowed, living with Mary E (1864)

E - 1943 Death record from Pamlico County. NC for Leah Potter mentions name of father Cecal Potter and mother Reziah Midgett
