Taylors of Benton & Carroll Counties Tennessee

Can you tell me anything about the Taylors in Carrol and Benton Counties, Tennessee? Our earliest Taylor ancestor is Joel Taylor who is found in the 1840 and 1850 census of Benton County. He has disappeared in 1860 but reappears in Hickman County, Kentucky in 1870 as J. G. Taylor. In Carroll and Benton there are also the following Taylors, most of whom I believe are descendants of Robert Taylor:

1830 Carroll
Abner
Arden
Berry
Hudson
Martin
William

1840 Benton (formed in 1836 from Carroll and Henry Counties)
Hudson
James
Joel
Nancy

1840 Carroll
Nancy
James W
Charles
Henderson

1850 Benton
John
Joel
James

There are about 20 Taylor families in Carroll County in 1850 so I won't list them all.

My sister recently submitted a dna sample to family finder and the results show that we have several Taylor families but one popped out - a connection to a gentleman who is descended from Nimrod Taylor. Consequently, I believe Joel G somehow has to fit into this family and in fact, may be the Joseph that is listed as a son of Hudson Taylor Sr.

Any thoughts you can share will be greatly appreciated.
