I'm looking for any information on the family of Aris Lunsford/Lunceford who was living in Richmond County, NC from 1800 through the late 1830's. He married Sallie Matthews in Richmond County in 1800.

By 1810, there were 6 males living in the household, all under the ages of 10. By 1820, a total of 10 males and 1 female were listed in the household. Additional children may have been born after 1820.

This family had relocated to Lauderdale and Dyer Counties in Tennessee by 1840. Indications point to a possible connection to Ephraim S. Lunsford who was in Richmond County in 1800, later relocating to Chesterfield County, SC and Chatahoochie County, GA.

Suspected children of this family may have been Henry Lunsford, John Lunsford, William Lunsford, Mary Lunsford, Ephraim Lunsford, Aris D. Lunsford, Stephen Lunsford, Duncan Lunsford, Sarah Lunsford, Elizabeth Lunsford, and Cullin Lunceford.

I'm looking for any documentation that might prove these connections.
