You said "least I know a few of her siblings now" does that mean you hadn't found the family on census records?

1900 census Shelby Co, TX, prior to birth of Lillie:

Blackman, Webb, h, b Jan 1865, 35, md 10 yrs, b LA, MS, LA
" Rebecca, w b Jul 1869, 30, md 10 yrs, 5 ch, 5 lvg, b TX, MS, Calif
" Caughey, s, b Oct 1890, 9, b TX
" Swiff[sic], s, b Feb 1893, 7, b TX [should be Swift]
" Lucy, d, b Mar 1895, 5, b TX
" Marion, s, b Sep 1896, 3, b TX
" Bergn, s, b Sep 1899, ?/12, b TX
[This child listed as Bertie on 1910 and as a daughter]

1910 census Shelby Co, TX, pg 4, after birth of Lillie:

Blackman, John W., Sr, h, 45 M(1) 20 yrs, b LA, LA, LA
" Beckie A., w, 40 M(1) 20 yrs, 10 ch, 8 lvg, b TX, LA, FL
" Thomas W.[sic], s, 17, b TX [should be S. for Swift]
" Mary L., d, 15, b TX
" Marion, s, 13, b TX
" Bertie E., d, 11, b TX [listed as son on 1900 census]
" Terry M., s, 8, b TX
" John W., Jr., s, 6, b TX
" Lillie M., d, 2, b TX

Page 179, this looks like son listed as Caughey on 1900 census and just married:

Blackman, Coy W., hd, 19 M(1) 0 yrs, b TX, LA, GA
" Nannie A., 21, wf, M(1) 0 yrs, 0 children, b TX, TX, TN
