Does anyone know these Willson/Wilson

Aaron Bryant Willson (1818-after1860) born in Illinois and died in Texas or Arkansas married Alcy/Alsey Carpenter (1831-1894) born in Tennessee and died in Scott County, Arkansas.

From the book of History of Dallas County, Texas:
Early court records shows an Aaron B. Wilson solemnized the first marriage in the county on Wednesday, 23rd of July 1846, as Justices of the Peace. Also in the book it shows three Wilsonís who settle in Dallas County before 1848, Aaron B. Wilson, Richard Wilson and George Wilson.

In the census of 1850 and 1860 shows Aaron as being born in Tennessee, but the census for his children in 1870,1880 and 1900 shows their father to be born in Illinois, and in 1870 the spelling of Willson was change to Wilson.
AT this time I am at a brick wall.
Could real use some HELPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!
