Draughon Research - Louisiana

I am in desperate need of help as I've hit a road block.

Here is what I know:

My Grandfather was Roland C. Draughon born in Brown County TX

His Father was Arthur Harrison Draughon
Wife Laura D. Holder of Holder, TX

His Father was William H. Draughon (went by Harvey or H. Draughon) born approximately 1841 Lousiana
1850 Census he was 9 years old living in DeSoto Parish LA with his Father and Mother
Wife Julia Slough

His Father was William Westberry Draughon (WW Draughon) born approximately 1819 and married to Mary Anne Harrison. His occupation was "Planter". I found a lot of good historical information on their tumultuous marriage and financial affairs. The records reference a James Harrison (Uncle of Mary Anne), Isaac B. Draughon and George R. Draughon listed as brothers.

His brother George R. Draughon lived in the same county in the 1850 census.

I cannot seem to figure out who George R. and William W.'s parents were.

I see from posts on this forum that a Joshua Draughon came to LA from NC but I am unable to find any direct connection.

Does anybody have any information? I'd be very grateful.
