Robert Pierce Torbet born about 1854 in Georgia

I'm looking for information on Robert Pierce Torbet, born about 1854 in Georgia. He mairred Sarah Elizabeth Huff on 6/6/1877, in Van Zandt County, Texas. Sarah Elizabeth Huff was born 3/6/1856, in Tishomingo, Mississippi. She died 2/26/1946 in Durant, Oklahoma.

They had the following children:
Alice May Torbet, born 4/1/1878, married Allen Lee Mitchell
Mary Elizabeth Torbet, born 1879, married William Claude Hancock
Thomas Hugh Torbet, born 6/2/1882, married Claudia Green

Robert Pierce Torbet disappeared sometime shortly after 1882. I have heard that his family never heard from him again. It is family legend that his brother was a horse thief, and that Robert may have gone to either take part in the thievery, or to help his brother who had been caught stealing horses.

I am looking for a couple of things:
1. Help finding out what happened to Robert after he disappeared.
2. Help finding out who his parents were.

Can anyone help?

Thank you,
Mike Beard
