James B. Betty from Madison county Tennessee

Am searching for the father of my great grandfather- Charlie Bettie. Who lived around Medina Tn. He was born april 11, 1888 in Medina Tn. Possibly born in Texas though. According to family tales His people came to Tenn from texas and his father died when he was young. I have found a James B. betty from Madison county Tn , Who might be his father. James B Betty married mary ann Davis on aug 02, 1881 . The record (if accurate) says that he was 21 at the time and mary ann davis was 23. So this puts his birth about 1860 and mary ann's about 1858. Was thinking that maybe they came to texas and don't know if James died in Texas or came back to Tn when he died. Also a snippet on another says that Mary Ann was born in Rutherford(Gibson county tn) . I believe that jame's father was Joseph A Betty who died about 1864 in Tennessee . I know that a lot of people and Betty's (Betties) came from Tn To Texas in the mid to late 1800's. If anyone has any information about james or Mary Ann or Joseph Betty , I would appreciate any information!! This has been a family mystery about the parentage of My ggdad Charlie . Hoping that can find a definite link to james B betty. Any help or hints appreciated.
NOTE: According to family tale Charlie's father was killed in a logging accident. He was supposed to be young when his father was killed but not exactly how young. The only time frame I could come up with for his death is 1888-1903. Mary Ann Betty married again in 1903 to William H king in madison county Tn.

Thanks in advance for any info!!
