Janet: I saw your message and I have tried to find this Mary McCaghren in Cleburne Co. and the name ofher parents. She married John Reuben Boyd on August 6, 1871. The only possibility that I can find is a Mary Helen McCaghren, born on 27 Sep 1845. She was a daughter of Henry Miles McCaghren and his wife Anne Norman. No one has ever come up with a husband for Mary Helen. You stated that you had her children's names. Does she have a daughter named Helen or Mary Helen, or a son with the name of Henry Miles Boyd? If so, that could be your answer and then I could give you a lot of info. If you give me the names of her children, I will try to see if I can figure out her parents.
