Can anyone recognize these people?

Can anyone shed some light on the following individuals found in the 1860 census for Henderson County, district 12, Tennessee:

A M Pickens 49        1810 North Carolina        Male
S W Pickens 45        1814 Tennessee         Female
M L Pickens 18        1841 Tennessee        Female
C C Pickens 15        1844 Tennessee         Female
S W Pickens 13        1846 Tennessee         Male
V N Pickens 11        1848 Tennessee        Female
S A Pickens 8        1851 Tennessee        Male

At first I thought perhaps is was Archibald M Pickens, because the census record indicates that he was a farmer and minister at Marl Branch Presbyterian from 1855 - 1863(posted on a gravestone); however the subsequent family names do not match. I belive the 13 year old male my be a family member by the name of Samuel W Pickens. The birth date is within range, location of birth is correct and information regarding the place of birth for father and mother are correct. However, since only initials are given I'm stuck.

Samuel W Pickens shows up on the Lauderdale county census for 1870 and forward.

Thanks for all you help.
