Lowcountry SC Tutens

I have reached a dead end researching my line of the Tuten family. Hopefully someone here will read this information I am about to provide and can help me make the connection to the known Tuten lines.

Here is what I am sure of:
My GG grandfather was named Thomas Wiley Tuten, and I think he went by "Wiley" or possibly "Pepper". He was born on 9/5/1843 and died on 7/28/1883. He is buried at the Old Beech Hill Cemetery in Dorchester County, SC. His grave is beside what I believe to be his first wife, A.M. Tuten (b. 12/3/1847 d. 5/23/1873). I believe she may have been named Ann or Annie Peeples. She died 10 years before Thomas. After Annie's death, he remarried to a Loanna or Louella Padgett. They married in June of 1874. After Thomas W. Tuten died in 1883, Louanna-Louella Padgett remarried to a Mr. Andrew Driggers. Louella Padgett and Andrew Driggers had 3 children, Downling, Edgar, and Ruth Driggers. These three people are my great grandfather's half brothers and sisters. My great grandfather was named Henry Milligan Tuten (b. 1/26/1881 d. 7/1963). He was the son of Louanna Padgett and Thomas W. Tuten.

Below is all the information I have in my notes file on Thomas Wiley "Pepper" Tuten. His mother may have been a Sauls, but that's just speculation right now.
