Lucy dau of Goen & Orpha Box Childress / Childers b TN abt 1828

I have not posted in some time but I am still looking for the identity of my great grandmother, Louisa Childers / Childress Yarbrough.

She was according to a letter written by her dau, born April 29, 1829. Census records say in TN. Her headstone in Johnson County, AR, simply says L. C. Yarbrough b.1829, d. 1890.

She married April 27, 1845, my g-grandfather, James Yarbrough (his second marriage), in Benton Co, TN. The hand-written record says her name - Louiz Childers but the Benton Co, "Ansearchin News" says Louisa Childress. Also, the West TN Marriage Records lists their marriage twice written as both Childers and Childress. They were married by Elijah Alsup a resident of Big Sandy, Benton Co, TN. at that time.

So, when I saw in Rootsweb World Connect the following information, I was interested in the daughter, Lucy. (My g-grandnother went by Lou):

Rootsweb world connect ID: I062
Sex: M
Birth: 6 JUN 1798 in SC
Death: 18 JAN 1870 in Tate Co., MS
Burial: Tyro Cemetary
Census: 1850 Marshall Co., MS

Father: David CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1768 in Spartanburg District, South Carolina
Mother: ANNIE b: ABT. 1774 in NC

Marriage 1 Orpha BOX b: 6 FEB 1799 in SC
1.        Isaac L. CHILDRESS b: APR 1821 in TN
2.        Ellen CHILDRESS b: 11 FEB 1826 in TN
3.        Lucy CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1828 in TN
4.        Burton M. CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1830 in TN
5.        Albert W. CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1833 in TN
6.        Goen Jr. CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1837 in TN
7.        John David CHILDRESS b: 5 MAR 1838 in Humphreys Co., TN
8.        H. R. W. CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1839 in MS
9.        Martha CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1841 in MS
10.        Eliza M. CHILDRESS b: ABT. 1842 in MS

My g-gmother was married in Benton County, TN which was originated from Humpreys County. So, the place could be right but the dates are not lining up, as it looks like the rest of the family moved to MS before my ggmother was married in 1845.

Still, I'm curious if anyone knows anything about this Lucy Childress and her family?
