This is eerie! Joseph and Elizabeth are in my family file!
Below is their marriage record:
"Morriss, Joseph m. 15 Dec 1846, Tuttle, Elizabeth; Bondsman: Carter, James"

The ancestry of Elizabeth Tuttle who m. Joseph Carroll Morris that I have in our family file matches that found in the page below:
"Descendants of Soloman Mandrell" at
Soloman MANDRELL (1756-1851) and Sarah (1775)
Had a daughter:
Martha A. MANDRELL (1803) who married Jesse TUTTLE (1796-1881)
And they had a daughter:
Elizabeth TUTTLE (1827) who married Joseph Carroll MORRIS (1826)
- And that is all that is shown there.
Below is Jesse Tuttle's 1850 census:
1850 TN Census, Sumner Co., 18 Oct, Dwelling 737, family 737, P ,
Jess Tuttle, 54, M-W, Farmer, $0, NC [Jesse Tuttle]

Note: The 1850 census information at ancestry.com shows all the families on the page as "Mulatto" since it appears that the "W" indicating "White" was misread.
Also, since Elizabeth Tuttle was married in 1846 she is not present in the 1850 census.
Below is the 1860 census of the Joseph Carroll Morris family:

Then - There is a completely different ancestry for Elizabeth TUTTLE found at:

John PERRY, b. 1770 in Halifax Co., North Carolina, d. 1852.
m. Elizabeth, b. 1775 in North Carolina, d. 1850 in Sumner County, Tennessee.
A child of John PERRY and Elizabeth is:

m. ? [no date shown]
Joseph C. MORRIS, b. Abt. 1826
Children of Elizabeth TUTTLE and Joseph C. MORRIS are:
i. William MORRIS.
ii. Lucinda MORRIS.
- And that is as far as that record shows.

The following two census returns appear to be for:
Robert (Robin) TUTTLE and Martha (Patsey) nee PERRY but since Elizabeth was married in 1846 she is not present in the 1850 census which family Ancestry.com indexes as "Suttle". The image is pretty clearly "Tuttle":
1850 TN Census, Sumner Co., 04 Nov, Dwelling 975, family 975, P 197,
