You said you found the family on the 1880 census, but didn't give any ages or where born etc. So, I went looking.

Found some information on Wm T. on the Austin Co, TX GenWeb. He was in the Civil War. Went to the Civil War site, William T. Bradford, Confederate, 31st Reg, GA, Inf. You can learn more about the 31st at that site, also.
Texas Confederate Pension:
Bradford, William Thomas - applied in Austin Co, TX
Bradford, Eliza - applied in Bastrop Co, TX - husband William Thomas Bradford.
You'll want the pension records, especially the widow's. Often they have to prove they were married to the veteran etc.
Austin Co, TX GenWeb: http://www.txgenweb2.org/txaustin/ -- Type Bradford in their search feature.
TX Confederate Pension Idx: http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/pensions/index.html -- Type in Bradford, William
