Lewis Franklin Canterbury

I need some help connecting the missing links in my Canterbury story. It is said that three (3) brothers came to TN in the late 1700's; Zachariah, John and Nelson. I think that the aforementioned John is actually John H. Canterbury, found in several TN and AL Census records, the last being Lawrence Co., AL, 1830-1840. Elizabeth, his wife, is found living with their son, Samuel C. Canterbury, in the 1850 AL Census.
Samuel C. and his wife, Ann, later moved to Waynes Co. TN, and are found in the 1870 Census, before moving with the Berry family to Red River Co., TX. Stops along the way were in Delta, Shawnee and Parker Co.'s. Samuel C. leased OK Indian land and raised horses with his sons and several other men. He is not found in the 1900 Red River Co. Census and I have no record of his death. His wife Ann is thought to have been buried in Coleman Springs, evidently a widow living with her son Alvin.
My line to all this is Lewis Franklin Canterbury, the son of Samuel C. who married Elva May Pool in Red River Co., but lived in Yarnaby, OK, IT, until her death in 1906. He then moved the family to Stephens Co., TX, and later married Lavinia Faubus. Lewis Franklin is my great grandfather.
Any connections, links or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike
