Savage Benson connection

Looking for parents of William Benson Savage for last 10 years. Birth dates from headstone (1839-1899) don't match up with search results. Born in S C according to census. Listed in 1860 census as living in Choctaw County, Ms & married to JuliAnna White. I know children were sometimes given their mother's maiden name as a middle name, but can't make the "Benson" connection. Think they migrated to Alabama, but no match so far. Have located land records in Choctaw Co. I've even considered the possibility that he was orphaned & "taken in" by a Savage family and took the name. One of his children was John Wesley Savage who is buried in Eupora, Ms city cemetery.
