Posting anywhere and everywhere is always a good idea, but since Loggins was in the subject box I thought that was the one on which you were focused. You still didn't give any dates, so I went looking at census records, and worked backwards to this one.

1880 census San Augustine Co, TX, looks like Caldona is already a widow living with her father.

Samuel LOGGINS Self W Male W 70 TN Farmer TN SC
C. HENLEY Dau W Female W 47 TN Keeps House TN NC
R. S. HENLEY GSon S Male W 20 TX At Home TN NC
A. M. HENLEY GSon S Male W 12 TX At Home TN ---
M. V. HENLEY GDau S Female W 7 TX At Home TN ---

Did you know Caladonia received an TX Confederate Widow's Pension? Husband Cornelius Sayles Henley, #19250 San Augustine Co, TX.

From Civil War Soldier site online:

Henley, C.S.; Confederate Cavalry; 26th Regiment, Texas Cavalry (Debray's) (Davis' Mounted Battalion)

I can't seem to find him on the 1860 or 70 census, maybe his military record will show where he enlisted. The online census index I use has to match spelling exactly, so if the spelling is off I can't find him.

Keep in mind Sayles may be a family name, his mother's or grandmother's maiden name.

If you think there is a tie to Hiram, on the 1860 census Hopkins Co, TX he has land $4,000 and personal $8,850 (probably owned slaves). Check land and probate records, see who shows up as his heirs.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
