John Arthur and Elizabeth (Betsy) Hackworth

I am trying to find the parents of my Ancestor Mastin H. Arthur, born Bedford Co. Virginia in 1808. According to a biographical sketch he moved with his partents to Tennesee when a young boy then in 1829 he can be found in Pike County, Missouri. His oldest son was named John James Arthur, he had one more son he named Wiliam B Arthur. I assume one of the sons was named after Mastin's father. I also wonder if his middle initial (H) may be for Hackworth. I have researched Tennesee census reoords and find a John Arthur there in 1820 census Franklin County Tennesee. Do you have a list of children or any suggestions that might help me follow John and Elizabeth Arthur and family?
