Farister, Forister, in Rutherford Co.

Looking for information about the H. Forrister on the 1840 Rutherford County census and Mary Farister on the 1850 census. I believe they are related to my g-g-grandfather, William Henry Forister. I am not sure of his birthdate, but he married Lucinda Green in Polk County in 1857. James Rains, who was living with Mary Farister in 1850, witnessed their marriage. I have now confirmed that Lucinda was the daughter of Henry B. and Mary Green b. 1800 and 1796 in Rutherford County. There is also the names of H. B. Green, Martin Forister, and Champion Forister that come up in my search. Forister has many spellings, it is hard to find the correct spelling, especially if they are named William.
I have several cousins helping in the search, but they are from South Carolina and Georgia, they each tell me a different place to look. All of William's children list his birthplace as North Carolina. I don't know where he could possibly be in 1850, and they do say he had a previous marriage to Lucinda. His children were Sarah, Doc Tandy Mitchel Adolfus (all one name? he went by Doc Tandy) William H. Jr. and James Gaffney Forester who I am descended from. All of the children settled in Spartanburg area especially Landrum. James G. Forester married Minta Shehand who was also from the Polk County area.
I would love to hear from other cousins there, any Huntley and Splawn relatives.
