Unless he had a previous marriage, this wouldn't work for Elzy since he was born in 1872.

However, there does appear to be a previous marriage:

Name:        Milus Vansickle
Marriage Date:        22 Mar 1866
Spouse:        Elizabeth Rowe

Here is the family in the 1870 Census:

Household Members:        
Name        Age
Miles Vansicle        24 b. 1846 Arkansas; farmer
Elizabeth Vansicle 22 b. 1848 Prussia
Ora B Vansicle        3 b. 1867 Arkansas
Sarah Vansicle        2 b. 1868 Ark.
Thomas Vansicle 1 b. 1869 Ark.

This Thomas appears to fit as a possible brother to your Elzy. Unfortunately, I can't find the family in the 1880 Census.

There is a tree on that has Elzy b. 1872 as son of Miles William Vanstsickle & Elizabeth Rowe along with son, Thomas M. b. 1869. The line traces back with the names you suggested. It's a well sourced tree with photos and family bios. Good luck in your search! Annie
