James Brown b. 1821 TN ; seeking ancestor info

Seeking information on James Brown (b. TN 1821); with father born VA & mother born NC. James married Mary Ann Holder (b. NC 1827) in 1843 in White County. Mary Ann Holder was likely the daughter of Spencer Holder Sr* (d 1867, White TN) & his first wife with first initial of M. James & Mary Ann were living in Van Buren Co, TN in 1850 and moved to Ballard, KY c. 1854. I have unsourced info indicating that James' middle initial was H, and that his parents were William Presley & Isabelle Jones. This couple's eldest known son, was named William P. and the second son, my 2nd great-grandfather, was named John Wesley b.1846. Any information about possible parents of James would be greatly appreciated.
*This is the Spencer Holder who moved from Surry Co NC after 1830, married Elizabeth "Bette" Nichols in 1841, and appeared in both the 1850 & 1860 White Co Federal Censuses.
