Descendants: Charles Cantrell and Sarah Murray

I'm looking for documentation for the children and grandchildren of Charles Cantrell and Sarah Murray, who were married in North Carolina, about 1772. My direct ancestor, Alfred Cantrell is reportedly the grandson of Charles Cantrell and Sarah Murray (through their son William), but I don't have documentation.

I know there are several Charles Cantrells, but I think this Charles was living in Rockingham, NC, at the 1790 Census, then moved to Spartanburg, SC, and finally to Tennessee. I don't know where William was born, but according to the 1850 Census (and a few later censuses), Missouri marriage records and other records, Alfred was reportedly born in Tennessee, married three times in Jackson County, Missouri, and then moved with a daughter to Mendocino California. He was murdered in Arizona about 1881.

Can anyone help me with information about Charles and Sarah's family? E.G. how many children? Were the children born in NC or Tennessee? Has anyone found land records or wills showing they lived (and died) in Tennessee?

I appreciate any information about sources for this family.
