Descendants of John Phillips, Jr of Grainger County in 1850

In 1830, a John Phillips lived in Jefferson County, TN who was listed as being 50 to 60 years old. That was the last time that he shows up in Jefferson County. In the 1850 Census, both a John Phillips, Sr (age 77, born VA) and a John Phillips, Jr (age 45,born TN) show up. Both have spouses named Elizabeth which were born respectively in VA and TN). In 1827 a John Phillips married Elizabeth Cluck in Jefferson County Tn. One of John Phillips, Jr.'s sons had the fairly unusual name of Elbert. My GG grandfather of Jefferson County was also named John Phillips and named my G grandfather Elbert. My John Phillips may have been the son of Jeremiah Phillips who lived in Jefferson County and could have been the son of John Phillips, Sr (eventually) of Grainger County.
I'm part of the Phillips DNA family group 12 and would like to find out if these Grainger and Jefferson County Phillips families were related. Does anyone have any information on direct male descendants of those early Grainger County Phillips families or any other information on them?
