Joseph Parks' murder 1816

Classification: Query
Surnames: Parks Tinsley
According to stories, my ancestor Joseph Parks was a friend of Daniel Ross (father of Cherokee leader John Ross) and was killed by a man named Tinsley in an altercation over a horse in Morganton, TN in 1816. Tinsley was supposedly tried in Knoxville and was freed. I'm hoping someone knows how to find documentation of this incident or has more information.
