Martin..Bottom and Powell Families early 1800's

Hello im looking for any information for a Thomas Martin and family who married Mary Powell in 1827 in Mercer County. I have quite a bit of info. on the Powell families and also the Bottom families. The Martin family must have been close to the Mercer County and Boyle County Line, because when Boyle county was created they fell into the Boyle County area.
Thomas Mary and family, except for oldest son Lewis A. Martin moved to Nodaway County in 1854....when Thomas Martin died in 1857, his oldest son Lewis A. Martin resided in Perryville Ky. as evidenced below:
Received Perryville, Kentucky, November 23rd, 1859 of William Martin, $30.00 dollars from Charles Martin, administartor of the estate of Thomas Martin, deceased, this amount being a part of the money due me from said estate.
Lewis Martin X his mark
Thomas and his family of 10 children, along with his mother-in-law, Milly Powell and Mary's sister, Ann Powell are listed on the 1850 Federal Census of Boyle County, Kentucky.

Thomas Martin 49 male farmer born in Ky

Mary 43 f Ky

Eliza 22 f Ky

Lewis A. 20 m Ky

Chas. P. 18 m Ky

Amanda F. 16 f. Ky

Lucretia 14 f Ky

William G. 12 m Ky

Sarah C. 10 f Ky

Benjamin Franklin 9 m Ky

Louisa C. 7 f Ky

Thos. 5 m Ky

Milly Powel 73 f Va.

Ann Powel 39 f Ky

SOURCE 1850 Boyle County, Kentucky census, Dist #1 call # 973007, dwelling 86/family # 94 NOTE Wesley B. Martin is not listed on the census

I am looking for any POSSIBLE info for Thomas Martins parents etc. This has been a Brick Wall family for me fo 3 years now and i'm looking for any possible leads. I strongly beleive the Martins came from Virginia late 1700's along with the Bottom and Powell families to Mercer County. Also does anyone have any info. for Lewis A Martin, the son who stayed in Boyle County, and was there until at least 1859 when he received his portion of the estate from his father.

Thank You Craig Campbell
