Cullins of AL ?Banks

My puzzle is Cullin P. Banks my mother's maternal grandfather. With the help of Ray Banks, I have the information that his
father is also Cullin P. Banks thought to be the son of John Banks of the 1840 Randolph Co. AL census.

This is slowly becoming a reality the more I search.

Cullin P. Banks (Sr.) (also listed as C.P.)was first recorded in TX in the 1850 Smith CO. census living in the household of
Samuel Dick at the age of 17 which would put his birth at abt. 1833 in AL.

He shows up in the 1860 Orange Co census with wife, Nancy and two daughters, Eliza and Infant Dau., putting their marriage,
possibly around 1858.

***Upon searching the families in the 1850 Smith Co. Census, that had a "Nancy" that was about the same age as Cullin's
wife, I found several. But only one family followed the Bankses to Orange Co., and they lived near Cullin and Nancy. That was
the Archibald and Eliza Prewitt family. Cullin and Nancy also named their first child Eliza.

There was also a "John" Banks living in Orange Co. But, I haven't determined the age of John, yet to see if he was possibly
Cullin's father.

Following the Banks back to 1840 Randolph Co., AL,
I discovered John Banks and Aneel Prewitt lived near each other.

***There was also a David Cullins family listed on the same page of the 1840 Randolph Co. Census. Which could be a source
for my Cullin's name. (John's wife's maiden name or John's or his wifes mother's maiden name.)

Please, if anyone can relate to these names or counties or states, I would be so appreciative of some help.

Thank you
