Texas Coghlans

I am interested in the Texas branch of Coghlans. My Great grandfather's name was John Franklin Coghlan.
He was born in Seymour, Texas on 6/1/1883 and died on 4/5/1955. His father's name was J.R. Coghlan.
I don't know what the J.R. stands for. I do know that J.R. had at least two brothers. One was named
Daniel B. Coghlan and the other Jefferson Davis Coghlan who married Alice Newton in 1891.
This is all I know since I am just begining my search. Any help would be appreciated.

I was born in Austin, Tx, July 1953. My father was James W. Coghlan whose father before him was from Texas, Perry I. I have some records that may be of help if I can find them.

I hope we might have a connection, but I haven't made it back so far as you have with the COGHLAN line yet.

I am looking for family of and info on Bessie Cleopatra COGHLAN, born in Austin, Travis Co., Texas in August 1893 to Wash P and Jennie COGHLAN. Their family is listed in the 1900 Travis Co., TX census for Austin, Ward 6, ED 92 in Pct 3 on page 99A.

Washington P COGHLAN (b. May 1851, OH) is listed as a carpenter in the Austin, TX directory 1899, 1900; residence was 1401 E. 1st.

Bessie married Oscar Pendleton JONES (b. 23 Sep 1893, Polk Co., TN) between 1910-1912 probably in Travis Co., Texas. They had at least 3 boys: Marvin (b. abt 1912); Clarence (b. abt 1914) and Oscar Roy (b. 16 Jul 1921).

Oscar was living with his grandparents, George and Mary J SHEPPARD in Austin, TX in 1900 and 1910. It is believed that one of their daughters was Oscar's mother and both his parents may have been killed or died shortly after Oscar's birth in Tennessee.

Any information you might be able to offer on the COGHLANs would be appreciated!

There are at least 2 branches of COGHLAN'S in Texas. One came from Ohio by way of Illinois and Iowa. The other came from Mississippi, this I believe is your branch. From what I can determine, these COGHLAN'S are descended from Surgeon Major COGHLAN who came from South Africa in the late 1800's.
