William Pannell/son of Jediah Pannell/TN, MO, and maybe MS

I'm hoping for help in straigtening out a mystery concerning William Pannell, son of Jediah (Jedediah) Pannell (born around 1780 in South Carolina, died after 1840) and Permelia Wheat (born in Tennessee).

Jediah and Permelia had, I think, four sons and four daughters, but I only know for sure of Hezekiah (born 1824, Tennesse/ married to Priscilla Johnson): William (born about 1820, Tennessee): and Susan Minerva Mary Pannell (born Jan 1829, Tennessee, and died April 1911, Missouri/ married to Hiram Eggars).

I've seen that there is a William Pannell, Jr., son of William Pannell and Lucinda Dove. I've also seen some people put Jediah Pannell as a son of William Pannell and Lucinda Dove. Is there anyone with information to help straighten out if Jediah is a son/grandson of William Pannell and Lucinda Dove? Jediah DID have a son, William, though this could be coincidence.

Going back to Jediah's son William, in the 1850 Missouri Federal Census, William, age 30, was living with his sister Susan Minerva in her husband, Hiram Eggar's household.

William Pannel 30

I've found a Mississippi Federal Census which has a William Pannell, born about 1817. The part that makes me think this is NOT the same William is that here there are five children over the age of ten. What was William doing living with his sister in 1850 if this is his family? What is a clue/stretch that this COULD be Jediah's William and possibly a tie to William/Lucinda is that one of William's daughter's is named Lucinda, and another daughter is named Permelia, possibly after Jediah's wife. Does this tie in to anyone's research?

Any information concerning Jediah Pannell and Permelia Wheat and their descendents would be greatly appreciated!
