Rufus Franklin Martin of Coffee County via Nelson VIrginia

Classification: Query
I have spent years trying to find connections for parents or siblings for a Rufus Franklin Martin b. 1819 in Nelson Co VA. Rufus lived 40+ years in Coffee County Tennessee, last appearing in the 1900 census there.

To date, I can document that:
Rufus married an Emily Toms in Mar 1847 at Lovingston, Nelson Co.
Rufus and Emily eventually made their way to Coffee Co. TN prior to 1860. (based on 1860 census)
Upon the death of Emily, he apparently married her sister Margaret in Coffee Co. Tennessee about 1864. Rufus married a 3rd time in 1877 to Martha Farris (Farrar) in Coffee Co.

It is thought that the children of Rufus Martin likely stayed in and around Coffee and Franklin county Tennessee. Rufus' son George Wesley Martin my great-grandfather came to Madison County Alabama which borders on Franklin co TN.

I am hopeful someone might have any lead that would help me move my research forward.
