George Washington Weeks

I am related directly to George Washington Weeks. I have him in the 1860, 1870, 1880 census living in Massac Co., IL
The 1st 'paper trail' I have on him is the 1855 (tax or census) of Pope Co., IL. He was in the Civil War - 48th, Illinois US Infantry, Co. A.
He enlisted in New Liberty, Pope Co, IL on Sept. 1, 1861. His enlistment record has him coming (nativity) from Stewart County, TN.
The above census records also indicate that he came from TN. His birth date is about 1835. I can not find him in the 1850 census either in Illinois or Tennessee. I would like to connect him with his parents - I need help. I have just searched some records in Stewart County (court house) and still can not connect him with the Weaks/Weeks of Stewart Co., TN.
