Andy -- you've also overlooked a real important factor. The close of the War of 1812. Many, many soldiers from this war were paid in Bounty Land Warrants, especially the Carolina militia troops. Most of these warrants were exercised in the new lands opened up from the defeat of the Indian Nations of Alabama (that was a war within the War of 1812). My ancestor Robert Boyd and family, and several of his sons-in-law, including my Newells, came to Tuscaloosa Co., AL about 1830 based on his Bounty Warrant payments.
