Stephen Ray Dunnagn was born in Hall Co GA c1827, lived in north AL about Civil War time, moved his family to Texas after the Civil War. Some of his children moved to New Mexico and Arizona - but I think it was later than the 1870s. Some of his grandchildren moved on to California and the state of Washington.
.
My grandfather, Oscar Thomas Dunagan of Indiana, went to Arizona in the 1890s for a couple of years for his health and to help organize a boarding school for the Pima Indiana agency. I'm not sure, but I don't think he had relatives in AZ. I think he got his job through friends in Indiana.
.
If you mean the 1970s, it might be someone from a wide variety of southern migrating families. You cannot depend on the spelling very much - but the Donegan spelling variation was strong in Dickson Co TN - so that could be a real clue.
.
There are some people in Nashville who sell Dunnagan/Donegan family data they have collected in the Dickson Co TN area.
.
As a retired history teacher i have learned there are many people who will try to help you, if you keep trying. I can tell you about our research group, if you are interested.
