M.T. Griswell / Griswald/Griswold - TN

While running down more children of Joel Griswell/Grissell/etc. of Henderson Co., TN - I have finally tracked one of his older sons - M.T. Griswell who was born in SC ca 1822 according to the 1860/1870/1880 census records.
1) M.T. is in Lauderdale Co., AL in the 1850 Census, living with the Sarah Weaver family - someone probably gave the census taker the information, because it is wrong - gives age of 35 and b. TN when he should have been 25? and born SC. But he is listed as a Physician and Joel Griswell was in Lauderdale in the 1830 Census. I also believe that M.T. went to Henderson Co., TN with his father in the 1840 Census and then back to Lauderdale Co., AL by the 1850 Census.
In 1860, M.T. is in Lincoln Co., TN, with his wife, Martha (I believe Conn) two children: Betty age 5, b. TN & Joel, age 3, b. TN. His brother W. C. Griswald is also living with him and is also listed as a Physician, b. AL.

By 1870 M.T. Griswold is in Wartrace, Bedford Co., TN, age 48, Physician, b. SC with wife, M.B., age 35, b. TN; M.B. (f) age 13 {Montey Betty?}, b. TN; J.W., age 11; M.F, age 7; M.A.Conn, (f), age 55.

In 1880, M.T. Griswell is age 57, Physician, b. SC, father b. SC; M.B., age 39, wife, keeps house, b. TN, father b. VA; Montey, age 24, daughter, b. TN, father b. TN; Joseph, age 21, student at school, b. TN, father b. TN;
George, age 18, at school, b. TN, father b. TN; M.A. Conn, (f), age 62, grandmother and widow, b. TN, father b. SC.
I don't think I am chasing two different M.T. Griswells - he is mentioned in the settlement of Joel's estate in Henderson Co., TN If anyone knows any more about him, please let me know. Nancy -
