Black / African American Gahagan

Hi :)
I'm looking for any Gahagan of Black/African American descent, alive or deceased.
AND also anyone who has come across, in their Gahagan research, a Black Gahagan listed in their records (slave schedules, slave manifests, servant listing, historical stories, etc... any instance where a Black person was named Gahagan from his owner or employer, etc.
I'm familiar where the name originated but I'm trying to find where along the line did Black Americans acquire the name.
I'm Black and I'm the grandchild of Betty Gahagan (deceased) of Tulsa, OK.
Thanx much :)
-TC
