The widow C.A. Crawford you mention in 1880 in Angelina County TX belongs to me, however I do not know much about her. She is shown with her three grandchildren, Sarah Crawford, born about 1869 and a grandson, I. W. Crawford born 1876 and another granddaughter S. J. Crawford born 1878.

Sarah is the daughter of "C.A.'s" son William R. Crawford born 1834 in Mississippi and his first wife, Mary A. E. Turner, born 1842 Texas, daughter of Samuel Turner and Emily Midkiff Turner. William R. and Mary A. E. married 1868 in Angelina County, TX. It is believed Mary died either after the birth of Sarah or with another child, which also died as William R. married #2 Sarah Rushing in Angelina County in 1872 and had I. W. and S. J..

It is believed that by 1880 William R. and Sarah Rushing Crawford had both died as the three children are living in the home of "C.A." Crawford who is shown as their widowed grandmother.

It would help if we knew the names of those shown above instead of "initials only"

Hope some of this helps both of us.
