Elijah Casteel m Patience Taber 1827

Can anyone tell us anything about the ancestry of Elijah Casteel who married Patience Taber in McMinn County TN on 24 March 1827? In 1830, Elijah is enumerated very close to our Alexander Casteel in McMinn Co TN.

Elijah and Patience seem to have had at least three children:
James F. Casteel b abt 1830
John Casteel b abt 1841
Rebecca L. Casteel b abt 1842 m. John McCurdy and had Margaret E., Sarah F., and John T,.McCurdy.

In 1830, they are in McMinn Co TN, page 184
In 1840, they are in McMinn Co TN, page 107
In 1850, they are in McMinn C. TN, page 324
In 1860, they are in Murray Co GA, page 24
In 1870, apparently Elijah has died, and Patience is living with the McCurdy family, in Whitfield Co GA, page 130a&b

The information above is everything I know about these people -- I can't provide more information about them.
However, I'm asking for help in determining the parents of Elijah.
