Rufus Franklin Martin born 1819 Nelson County Virginia

I have spent years trying to find connection for parents or siblings for a Rufus Franklin Martin b. 1819 in Nelson Co VA. To date, I can document that:

Rufus married an Emily Toms in Mar 1847 at Lovingston, Nelson Co.
Emily Toms was the daughter of Clifton Toms (Tomes).
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 Tennessee about 1864.
Rufus married a 3rd time in 1877 to Martha Farris (Farrar)

It is thought that most of the children of Rufus Martin stayed in and around Coffee and Franklin county Tennessee with a few ending up in North Alabama. Rufus' son George Wesley Martin my great-grandfather was one who came to Alabama.

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