Looking for Third Great and Byond

This query created by Danny Tipton.

My grandfather was Leonard Lee Tipton (born in Austin, Tx 1897). My 1st Great was William Alexander Tipton born Feb 7 in Monroe County or the town of Monroe -unsure which but I think it is the county. 1850 Census had him living in Bradley County. My 2nd great grandfather was Benny C. Tipton born about 1825 with no town listed. Maybe name was Berry(?)
I\’ve been unable to find any information about who Benny or Berry\’s father was. Any information forwarded to me is greatly appreciated.
