Benjamin Graham Hooker in Henderson County, Texas (from Panola County)

Classification: Query
My husband's gg-grandfather Benjamin Graham Hooker was buried in Goshen Cemetery in Eustace, Henderson County, Texas. He was born 21 Nov 1815 in Anson, North Carolina, and died 13 Sep 1869, presumably in Henderson County.

Our question is does anyone know why he was there? He arrived in Panola County, Texas some time between 1857-1859 based upon childrens' birth places. He had a wife (Susan Wall Hooker) and eight children in Panola County, with one more son born a month after his death. His wife married his brother James not too long after his death because they are in the same household in the 1870 Census. We have been unable to track down a reason for him being in Henderson County, so any information is helpful. Thanks!
