Peter Faust/Foust

I am looking for info on Peter Faust/Foust who married Jane Cowan/Cowen 26 April 1838 in Marshall County, Alabama. She remarried to Thomas C. Wells, Jr. on 22 August 1846 in the same county. I have presumed Peter Faust must have died in the interim.

In the 1850 census of Marshall Co AL, Jane Cowan Faust Wells is seen with a son James W. Faust as well as a couple of children by Thomas Wells.

Jane Cowan was a daughter of James Cowan and Frances Garrett, who were from Laurens Co. SC and came to the area of Big Spring Valley southeast of Guntersville, AL about 1835. This was near the border of Marshall and Blount County. One of Jane's brothers, David Cowan, settled in Brown's Valley which was across the line in Blount County.

I have wondered if Peter Faust/Foust was a son of the Reverend Peter Faust known to be in the Blount County area by 1830, but I have not seen him in a list of his children.

Can anyone tell me anything about my Peter Faust, or his son James Faust?
