Have a puzzle with Reuben & wive (wives?) & children.

The 1850 Rapides Parish census shows the following:
Enumerated 1 Nov 1850
Household 645/645:
Reuben Ray 37 M Farmer LA [1813]
Olivia 35 F LA [1815]
Washington Ray 19 M LA [1831]
Polly Ray 17 F LA [1833]
Adams Ray 15 M LA [1835]
Joseph Ray 13 M LA [1837]
Anna Ray 12 F LA [1838]
Olivia Ray 11 F LA [1839]
Sally Ray 9 F LA [1841]
Lucinda Ray 8 F LA [1842; 1 Apr 1841 - 25 Mar 1925]
Rebecca Ray 5 F LA [1845]
Reuben Ray 4 M LA [1846]
Robert Ray 1 M LA [1849]

The 1860 Rapides Parish Census shows the following:
Enumerated 19 Jun 1860
259/259:
Adam Ray 26 M Farmer --/$700 LA [1834; son of Reuben in next house]
Martha 25 F LA [1835; nee Willis per Occupy 1 burial]
Nelda? 6 F LA [1854]
Samuel 4 M LA [1856]
Infant 2 F LA [1858]

260/260:
Reuben Ray 50 M Farmer $1000/1950 LA [1810]
Lucinda 38 F LA [1822]
Rebecca 14 F LA [1846, daughter of Reuben on 1850 Rapides Parish Census]
Lewis V 12 M LA [1848, child of Reuben & Olivia not listed on the 1850 census??]
Reuben 13 M LA [1847; son of Reuben on 1850 Rapides Parish Census]
Robert 12 M LA [1848; son of Reuben on 1850 Rapides Parish Census]
Seaborn V 10 M LA [1850]
California 7 F LA [1853]
Arcilla 5 F LA [1855]
Matilda 3 F LA [1857]
Infant 2 F LA [1858]

Is the Lucinda listed on the 1860 census a second wife?
Exactly who were Seaborn V, California, Arcilla, Matilda, and the infant girl?

Am trying to determine exact relationships for these people.

Thanks
