Arnold/Lester - Help!!!

Please help me find parents of my greatparents. William Riley Lester and Ruth/Ruthee/Ruthie J. M. Arnold were mar. 3 Jan. 1846 in Maury County, Tenn. William Riley served for a short time in the Civil War in CSA, then went AWOL and apparently fled to Illinois for a time (long enough for one child to be born), then went to Christian Co., Ky, where other children were born, then to Sharp County, Ark., in 1871 where Wm. Riley homesteaded acreage. They lived there till death. Their Children: William Thomas, Paralee M., Mary E., Albert Jackson, Garrett Brandon. Hugh? (Banty), George W., Robert Lee, and Elizabeth Jane, my grandmother. Grandmother had a cousin by last name Nolen. If anyone out there can give me any information or any clues at all, please e-mail me.
