Joseph Creighton ca 1820 SC/NC

Looking for information on my great great grandfather Joseph M. Creighton. He was born in SC around 1819 and later moved to Mecklenburg Co., near Charlotte, NC. He married Jane Adams of Paw Creek on March 1, 1847 in Mecklenburg County. She must have died shortly thereafter as she is not listed in the 1850 census with him. He remarried a Jane Hutchison and census records indicate at least 7 children. I do not have a marriage date but it must have been 1850 or 51 as their first child (Charles, my ancestor)was born in 1852. Joseph lived to be 87 years old and died in Charlotte in 1907 and is buried in Elmwood Cemetary.

Any information on this family would be very helpful and much appreciated. I would like to determine Joseph's father and mother if possible. There are several Creighton families in SC in the early 1800's including Thomas and James from Kershaw Co. There were also some Creighton's from the Charleston, SC area. One of these families is probably his father but I do not know which one. Any idea? Any information on these Creighton families that would help my search would be great.
