I'm looking for information on the descendants of Martin Luther McGilvray. He was born in Alabama in 1850. He married 1st Margaret Ann Bostick abt. 1877 in AL. They had the following children:
1) William E. McGilvray, b. abt. 1873 in AL
2) Sarah McGilvray, b. abt. 1875 in AL
3) Susan Irene McGilvray, b. abt. 1876 in AL, m. Clarence Young.
4) Ila Carrie McGilvray, b. abt. 1877 in AL, m. 1st Will Harter, 2nd Andrew Van Ness and 3rd Charlie Simmons.
5) James Luther McGilvray, b. abt. 1879 in AL
6) Eli McGilvray, b. abt. 1882 in AL, m. Jesse McCauley

Martin Luther left AL and came to Harrison Co., TX. Margaret died in 1885 and he married 2nd Lena M. Mobley the daughter of William Reed Mobley and Jane Larkin Smith. Lena was b. in 1862 and died in 1931. Martin & Lena had the following children:

1) Lula McGilvray, b. Aug 1888 in TX, m. Edwin B. Douglas about 1905.
2) Alma McGilvray, b. Aug 1893 in TX, m. Fred Stilby
3) Ottis Alfred McGilvray, b. Sept 1896 in TX
4) James McGilvray, b. Feb 1900 in TX
5) Joe McGilvray, b. abt. 1904 in TX, m. Nona Woodley
6) Otis E. McGilvray, b. abt. 1907 in TX, m. Mary Lillian Henderson.

Most of the information above came from federal census records and the book "Harrison County, Texas, Caucasian Residents in 1880."

Any information on the descendants would be appreciated.
