Booker family from Amelia co. to TN?

I'm interested in Joseph Booker, b. ca. 1795, who appears in the census for Franklin co. AR in 1850. Is he the Joseph P. Booker who appears in Tipton co. TN in 1840 and 1830 (but not in 1850)? There are some trees on that refer to Joseph Parham Booker, son of Edmund and Mary (Pride) Booker of Amelia co. VA. Is this the Tipton co. Joseph P.? These trees give little information about Joseph Parham Booker except that he was b. ca. 1795, d. 1855 (no place indicated), married Ann Catherine Winfree.

The Joseph in Franklin co. AR is married to a Margaret, but it appears to be a second or third marriage for her, and so possibly also for him. He appears to have died between 1850 and 1860.

The ancestry trees also indicate a sister of Joseph Parham Booker named Elizabeth, but no further information. There is, in the Franklin co. census of 1850, an Elizabeth Elliott living near the Joseph and Margaret Booker, whom I believe may be a sister of this Joseph.

Does anyone have any information that might shed light on all these relationships? Thanks!
