James Aaron Patterson, Elizabeth "Betsey" Speer, Joel Patterson

I would like any information about James Aaron Patterson, son of Greenberry Patterson and Rebecca Bohannan. He married Elizabeth "Betsey" Speer in Surry County, North Carolina early in the 1800's. I am particularly interested in his son, Joel Patterson...anything about his life, marriages, etc. I know most of James' children are accounted for, but wonder if this is the Joel Patterson who married Sarah Walton of Newton County, MS in teh mid 1840's, later Matilda Smith in Newton County,MS about 1861 and died 1897 in Marion County,MS. James Aaron Patterson died about 1832 and Betsey (Elizabeth) Patterson later moved into Tennessee and Nashville to live with some of her children as they moved westward (some remained in NC). Did James Aaron Patterson leave a will or other papers to help identify which Joel is his son? James Aaron Patterson was also connected with Henry G.Hampton, who he named to watch over his children's land interests when he died.
