Henry B. Warren,Jr. talked about uncle Tom and Dick Scaggs, brothers, which possibly belongs to this family. Dick Scaggs had a reputation of being a tough guy in Springfield, MO. He had an 8" punch that knocked people out in one punch. His brother Tom lived in Tulsa, OK. and was married to Sarah. He had worked for an oil company and was care taker of the oil properties in Tulsa during his retirement years. The property was later donated to the University of Tulsa and Tom was forced to move. He bought a place on East 3rd St. in Tulsa where he lived until his death. They had two children Berneace and Wilbur. The daughter was living in Tulsa, OK. and the son died in TX, There is the possibility of another brother of Tom's named Frank who married Norma and also lived in Tulsa.
