These may be your boys in 1870 in the household of one G.C. Spellings in Benton Co., TN:

1870 census, Camden, Benton Co., TN:
G.C. Spellings, age 64, b. NC
M.C., female, age 48, b. KY
G.C., male, age 11, b. TN
H.K., male, age 18, b. TN
C.G., male, age 14, b. TN
H.B., female, age 9, b. TN
J.C. Victory, indexed as age 6, but written over, could be 4 or 5, b. TN
W.L. Victory, age 3, b. TN

There were two Spellings (not G.C.) in the 1860 census in Carroll Co., so there must be some connection here. Could the Victory boys' mother's maiden name have been Spelling?
