Charles and Della Murphy-AR/TX

I am searching for the descendants of my g-uncle, Charles "Charlie" G. Murphy, b. 1879 Saline or Perry Co., AR. Uncle Charlie's parents were:

George "Jim" MD Murphy, b. 1845 Meigs Co., TN and Susannah "Susie" Hefley, b. 1840 Chester Co., NC. Uncle Charlie had 5 brothers and 1 sister, b. 1867-1877 AR:

Robert Lee
Sarah Elizabeth-married James R. Tillery James "Jim"-my g-grandpa-married Molly Ford and Catherine ? McGrew
John D
Thomas J-married Nancy ?, daughter Ivy
William "Bill" H-married Dais Davis

G-g-grandma Susie died between 1880-1882 and g-g-grandpa Jim married Mary E Seymour. Uncle Charlie, my g-grandpa Jim, my grandpa George "Jack" and his sister Effie moved to the TX panhandle. I know that both my grandpa's and Effie were in Borger, Hutchinson Co., TX by 1926 to work in the oil fields. My grandma had told me that Uncle Charlie worked picking cotton in TX.

I was told my a Murphy/Tillery/Dickson cousin that Uncle Charlie married Della Keener, maybe in TX. I know that Charlie had been married before. 3 of his children's names:

Alvin "Alvie", b. 1904 AR-he died in his 20s
Jewel, who I think married an Osby

I was also told my a Tillery/Dickson cousin that Uncle Charlie's sons were very musical, as was my Grandpa "Jack". I think that my g-grandpa Jim and Uncle Charlie left TX, went back to Perry Co., AR around 1933 before moving to CA. I know that Uncle Charlie and Della lived in Redding, CA. I think Uncle Charlie died in Redding around mid 1950.

Does anyone have knowledge of Charles and Della Murphy?

Thank you,
