Watts / Mitchell

Surnames: Watts, Mitchell
Hi folks. I'm trying to run down my wife's maternal ancestry. I've gotten as far as the family of Ewell Watts (1793-1869) and Prudence Mitchell (1804-1871). Their household turns up in the 1850 census residing in the Western Division of Wake County, NC. I'm trying to figure out where Prudence was from.

The only Mitchells I can find in the same time and place are the household of Reuben Mitchell (b. 1788), also in the 1850 census residing in Cross Roads, Wake County. He has a daughter Temperance (b. 1828) and I wonder if there's a connection.

Anyone have info on either family? Here are the census links. Thanks!
