(Someone online had that he married Martha Bowen in 1847. If that is true, then he or she had to have been married before. If Sophronia is her child, then they were probably married ca 1843. As he was significantly older than she, he may well have been married before.)

Randolph Co. is surrounded by Quitman, Stewart, Webster, Terrell, Doughterty, Calhoun and Clay Counties.
As he is later in the eastern counties, this seems like a backwards migration
