You can view her headstone on Find a Grave and someone has posted some information about her, her husband and children.
I know you show children being born in Cass Co, TX in 1860 and 1862. But, if this was my line I would check out records in Fort Bend Co, TX.
1860 census Ft Bend Co, TX:
Farmer, J., 41, b GA - land 15,000/personal 10,000
" M., 31, b GA
" H., 5, b TX (male)
" not clear, 3, b TX (male)
" R., 9/12, b TX (male)
Now, we know Joseph died 1862, Civil War, good chance his widow remarried.
1870 census Ft Bend Co, TX:
Armstrong, David, 49, b TN, stock raiser- no land/pers 4,000
" Mary, 41, b GA - land 2,000/personal 600
" Mary B., 3/12/ b TX, born in Mar
Farmer, Henry R., 16, b TX
" Charles S., 13, b TX
" Robert R., 10, b TX
" Elizabeth (?), 9, b TX
" R-----, 6, b TX (male)
Now the 1870 family is the same one from 1860, with female remarrid. Note she owns the land. After the CW, land was valued much cheaper. I would look at land records. Plus guardianship records. The man in this family left minor children and women weren't supposed to be able to handle money and business. So, the court appoints a guardian, not to physically take the childrn, just report to the court of sale etc of any of the estate.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
