Michael from NC Born 1789

I hope someone can help. My name is Brad Ramsour. My family is out of Lincoln Co, MO, however we have traced it back to North Carolina. The following is what I have:
1850 Census for Lincoln Co, MO shows Michael and Betsey Ramsour from NC living in the home of
James and Rachael (Ramsour?) Beard.
I believe Rachael is Michael and Betsey Ramsour's daughter
Michael Ramsour Born abt 1789 NC
Betsey Ramsour Born abt 1790
James Beard Born abt 1809 SC
Rachael Ramsour abt 1813

In the same county there is one Elizabeth Harvey Widow from Virginia
Living in the house is Parks Ramsour(Nickname?) from NC and Sarah, his wife out of Virginia
Parks Ramsour Born abt 1820 NC
Sarah Ramsour Born abt 1815 VA
Margaret Born abt 1841
Nancy Born abt 1844
Michael Born abt 1846
Mary Born abt 1848

One other Ramsour was in Lincoln Co MO at the time
Kindal Ramsour born abt 1813 NC
Wife Sarah Born abt 1814
Henry W Born abt 1834
Laura A Born abt 1837
John L Born abt 1841
Susan A Born abt 1844
Francis Born abt 1846

I feel that Michael and Betsey Ramsour were the parents of
Rachael Ramsour
Parks Ramsour
Kindal Ramsour
along with five other children

There is another Michael Ramsower living in Newton Co. MO in 1860 that fits into the 1820 Overton Co. TN childrens count for an older Michael Ramsour. Young Michael in Newton Co. was also out of NC.
Michael Ramsower born abt 1813 NC
Delilah born abt 1829 IL
Synthia born abt 1849 TX
William born abt 1850 TX
Columbus born abt 1853 MO

Is this another brother to Parks, Kindal and Rachael?
Does anyone have anything on the history of these individuals? My interest is in young Michael GGGF-Parks GGGGF-Michael GGGGGF. Anything would help.
