Two Larkin Garnets

I am looking for one Larkin Garnett married to Elizabeth (possibly Bell) in the early 1800's probably in Virginia. They moved to Kentucky between 1802 and 1807. Larkin's will was probated in Harrison County Kentucky around 1856/1858 and it lists among their children Nancy Caldwell (born 1804), Eliza Furman (born 1814, Foreman or Forman is more accurate) and Sallie King. I believe Nancy was married to Samuel Caldwell and Eliza to Casey Foreman. Nancy and Eliza are buried in the same cemetary in Marion County, MO in the Palmyra area. I also came across a biography of a Thomas Garnett born in 1806 on the KYGenWeb page that indicates his parents as Larkin and Elizabeth (Bell) Garnett. I believe it also indicates that he was one of 12 siblings--6 boys and 6 girls.

The conundrum with this line is that apparently there were two Larkin Garnett's both born around 1782 in Virginia and both married to women named Elizabeth. The Larkin I am looking for I am certain is not the son of Rueben Garnett who died in the late 1830's leaving a helpless brood of children: Larkin, Horace, Frances, Sarah Ann, Martha, Simeon, Elizabeth, Reuben, James, Isaac, George, and Hugh.

I do believe it entirely possible the two Larkin's were possibly related in some way.
