Looking for Relatives of Arthur Cordy (Son of Charles)

I am looking for relatives of Arthur Cordy, who was the son of Charles Cordy. Arthur died 27 November 1879 - I think in the US - and was supposed to be a native of Bristol, England. My aunt in El Paso, Texas - we are not related to the Cordy family - has a Cordy family Bible that was given to her parents by some elderly family friends, who had no surviving direct descendants. My aunt would like to pass on the item to a relative of Arthur Cordy, who can give us sufficient information to show a family connection. Bible is inscribed "Arthur Cordy, 8 Sep 1869, a gift from his beloved father Charles Cordy." Arthur may have had a wife born in Louisiana and a daughter Mary/May born in Louisiana about March or May 1880. Mary/May married a Foster Hathaway about 1897. Census records for May Hathaway for 1900-1930 all say that her father was born in England and her mother in Louisiana. Given May Hathaway's birth date, Arthur could have been her father and died before she was born. He may have died in Orleans Parish, Louisiana.
