Henry County, Tennessee Queries - Q2 1998

I'm researching my gg-grandfather, A.J. Nichols. He is shown in Calloway Co. Ky. on the 1850 census but the birthplace of his children is shown as Tenn. Another document that I have makes reference to A.J. being from Henry Co. Tenn. If anyone can confirm this for me (census, tax rolls,etc.), I would be extremely greatful. Thanks, Charlie
