Can anyone further identify Preston Ramsey, or any other member of his household, listed on page 449 of the 1850 census of Cape Girardeau County, Missouri?

Dwelling 1556

RAMSEY Preston 45 Male TN Farmer
RAMSEY Elizabeth 29 Female TN
RAMSEY Sarah J. 13 Female TN
RAMSEY James A. 10 Male AR
RAMSEY William J. 8 Male AR
RAMSEY John N. 2 Male AR

There were these other households on the same census page; one headed by a Ramsey man, one with Ramsey residents:

Dwelling 1546

RAMSEY Alfred 33 Male MO Farmer
RAMSEY Emeline 26 Female TN
RAMSEY William 2 Male MO
RAMSEY Charles F. 6/12 Male MO
RAMSEY Rebecca 68 Female VA

Dwelling 1549

DOCKKINS John K. 21 Male IN Farmer

DOCKKINS Cassivil P. 1 Male MO
DOCKKINS Missouri Ann 6/12 Female MO
RAMSEY Catherine 25 Female IL
RAMSEY Benjamin C. 6 Male MO

Alfred Ramsey was my father’s great-grandfather. Rebecca (Huggins) Ramsey, the widow of Samuel Ramsey, was Alfred’s mother.

Was 1850 Cape Girardeau County head-of-household Preston Ramsey the same Preston Ramsey identified as head of a household in Cache Township, Greene County, Arkansas, on the 1840 census?
