There are some very good researchers that browse this forum and have access to sources I don't have. They might be able to help you, but you didn't include any dates for anyone in your query, it helps to narrow down searches. Without dates I can't be positive I found some of the brothers, but these three all born MS and birth dates fairly close to each other.

1900 census:

Upshur Co, TX -- Samuel McNair b 1847 MS and his family
Navarro Co, TX -- Alexander McNair b 1836 MS and his family
Hunt Co, TX -- Henry McNair, b 1839 MS and his family

By following members of the family you might find living members.

Informant was his wife. His obituary might list survivors, good way to find married names of female members of the family.
