John Wolfenbarger, Grainger or Union, TN, late 1800s/early 1900s

I'm trying to research my dad's grandparents. His name is Fred Carver. My grandmother was Mary Magdaline Wolfenbarger. She was born in Tennessee. In the 1930 census, she was living with her three siblings (Nannie, Vertie, and John Rolfe Wolfenbarger) and her mother Ruth Wolfenbarger was listed as the head of household. Ruth was listed as 25 in the 1930 census. I'm not sure where John Wolfenbarger was since he was not listed as the head of household. John Rolfe was born in 1927 and Mary was born in 1921. I haven't seen the 1920 census for Grainger or Union County, but that may help. I haven't found a marriage record for John Wolfenbarger and Ruth (maybe Johnson). My family grew up in Bell County, Kentucky. Granny Mary had moved there with Virgil Washam her last husband. Fred, my dad, had stories of the Wolfenbarger cousins living in Bell County and in Tennessee...I think possibly Tazewell or New Tazewell, Tennessee. So, I'm looking for info on a John Wolfenbarger born in the late 1800s in Tennessee, possibly Grainger or Union Counties. Please help.
