Pendergrass, Mathew and John Eley Sr.

I am searching for records of my GGG grandfather John Eley Pendergrass, b. 1803 d. 5/1863, and his father Mathew Pendergrass, b. abt. 1770 (Chatham, NC) and died after 1840 in Bledsoe, TN. Mathew may have operated a mill. John Eley's son John Eley Jr. died of wounds at Stone's River/Murphreesboro, Jan. 9 1863. Martha Elender Pendergrass (Gregory) emigrated to MO before 1870. The family has no records before John Eley. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In First Families of Bledsoe County, under the Ellison entry it states: Robert B. Ellison was in Pikeville in 1850. He married Melvine Pendergrass, daughter of Mathew Pendergrass. Melvine was born ca 1833. Both families appear on the 1850 census of Bledsoe County. John E. Pendergrass and family also appear on the census.
