Searching for info the McCaghrens who settled in Polk County during the 1800s. I'm interested in the names of the descendents of Robert A. McCaghren. Did any descendents travel up to the Marshall/Tyler area, or to Tarrant County, TX?

I believe my McCaghren relatives are connected to this family. My great-grandfather was William Charlie McCaghren (b. March 5, 1885 and d. April 19, 1963), and he was a cotton farmer born in Alabama. In the 1920 and 1930 census reports, he was farming in Tarrant County, TX (near Dallas). His daughter Inez (my grandmother) worked in her father's fields while growing up.

William Charlie had a younger brother named Tom McCaghren who assisted him on the farm during the 1920s.

I can't seem to get any further with my McCaghren family, so I'm hoping someone can help. Thank you!
