In the early years of the last centu ry, he was determined to se ek a home in the new country then opening to American settlers i n that p art of the Dominion of Mexico known as Texas. It was such an adventure a s many pionee rs were willing to engage in at a risk of considerable pe rsonal danger. His son, Archibald, r eceived from him a letter written a t Natchitoches, Louisana, the border of Texas, and soon af terwards the re came a notice to the effect that Hugh McKaughan was dead.
