missing 2 NUNNALLY daughters born 1880-1900 TX

I am searching for the "two sisters" mentioned in the El Reno, Canadian Co, Oklahoma obituary below:
El Reno Tribune, Weds, March 05, 1941
"Veteran Railway Employee is Dead: Heart attack is fatal to J. A. NUNNALLY"
"John Aaron Nunnally died March 05, 1941
He had lived in El Reno the past 15 years. He was 54 years of age, a Rock Island locomotive fireman and began his railroad services in 1912 at Atoka, OK. He moved to El Reno in 1925. Survived by his widow and one son Aaron. Three brothers, H. D. Nunnally of Fort Worth, Tex, C. M. Nunnally of Vinita, OK and W. E. Nunnally of Quail, Tex and TWO SISTERS whose names could not be learned immediately."

Judging from the birthdates of their 6 brothers, I am guessing one daughter was born between 1880-1881 and the other born between 1888-1890 or after 1891.

1880 Fannin Co TX/Prec 6/HH 81-81/pg 488a (05 Jun 1880)
NUNNALLY, John D /HH/wm age 28 AL/Al/Al
Nunnally, Edie E /wife/wf age 18 MS/NC/Ms
Nunnally, Willie E /son/wm age 01 TX/Al/Ms
RICHARDSON, Robt J /COUSIN/wm age 29 AL/Al/Al

I have not been able to find this family on the 1900 census
Son John Aaron was living with his uncle Frank Lawson so
IF Eddie was still living, then this census would show
John Daniel (J D)
Eddie (Edie, E E)
William Ellis (W E)
Harris Davis (H D)
Claude Miles (C M)
........AND one or both of the missing daughters !!!
John Daniel NUNNALLY and Eddie (Ettie, Ellie, Edie) [HARRIS] married in Fannin Co TX abt 1877-8.

I have proven John & Eddie had 6 sons and located all of them.

Do you have a NUNNALLY female who might belong to this family???
She might have stayed in Texas or followed her father and brothers to Atoka, Bryan, Shawnee, or Craig counties Okla.
If so, contact me and let's prove or disprove it.
