    No, but my maiden name is McCord and there were papers and letters in my Grandmother's attic from McCords in the years 1860-1865. They were from a place called Red River, Tx----from what we can gather, it is somewhere near the panhandle. as the letters speak of losing a baby to "the fever" and being buried during the winter blizzard.
