Looking for Murrells

Have traced family tree back to my g-g-g-grandfather Wiley Anderson Murrell b 1806. He marr Mary Magdalene Honts in 1834 Botetourt, VA. But cannot find his parents. A distant cousin in searching thought his father may be a John Murrell and mother a Elizabeth Anderson. The name William Anderson is passed down through generations. Would appreciate any help. Thanks Diane

Wiley Anderson Murrell b1806 marr in Botetourt, VA in 1834

Need help in finding parents of Wiley Anderson Murrell b 1806. I have his marr 9 Apr 1834 to Mary Magdalene Honts/Honce b 1806 and children. Have a lot after marriage and on wife's ancestors. But distant cousins and I have hit a brick wall with Wiley. Their are generations of Wiley Anderson Murrell. So was thinking there must be a significance to Anderson name. One cousin thinks his father's name is John and mother Elizabeth. On a Bryant Tree have him listed as bro of Job and Nancy Murrell, their father William L Murrell. On a 1830 census, Cocke Co.,TN., It shows 2 William Murrells and a Job Murrell living close to one another. The younger William would be right age for Wiley and shows an adult female and 2 children 5-under living with him. Also found marr 1828 of William Murrell and Nancy Mitchell. however younger William not on any of later census in Cocke, TN. If he lost his wife and children maybe he went back to VA, where he marr Mary Honts in 1834. My mind is going in too many directions. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Diane Murrell
