I am looking for James Perry Anderson's obituary, 1870 or 1880 census entry, or any other DOCUMENTATION proving his parents and/or siblings!!!

A living g-grandson of James Perry ANDERSON & Rosa [WILBURN] has asked me to find PROOF of James Perry's parents and siblings as he does not have a computer.
FIRST, has anyone been able to locate James Perry Anderson on the 1870 or 1880 census ??? I have searched the 1870-80 Texas and Louisiana census indexes using every conceivable name variation I can think of but with no results. It is interesting that just about everyone includes James Perry Anderson as a son of Perry Anderson & Nancy Isabella [Bodine] but no one lists any documentation to prove it.

The 1910 Shelby Co Tx census provides circumstantial evidence that James Perry Anderson is the brother of William Pinkney Anderson (son of Perry Anderson & Nancy Isabella [Bodine]) as James Perry Anderson's oldest son, John Wright Anderson is listed as William Pinkney Anderson's NEPHEW on that census and he is living next door to James Perry Anderson.
