Nelson family LA to TX to Nacogdoches co.TX b4 1880

Hi, I would like any info, family stories, etc. on this Nelson family, who came from Jackson Parish LA [1850], to Hill County, TX,[1870] to Nacogdoches county 1880 where they died prior to 1900.
Parents of Richard are listed 1880 as b.in NC, nothing more is known of them. Especially would like to know of Native American links. any corrections are welcome. Mary Magdalena "Lena" Nelson was my great grandmother. Would like to see pictures of Nelson relatives if any exist from this family. Would like to know if there is a connection to other Nelson families in Nacogdoches earlier than 1880. Thanks,
Dena
