Your Gores were apparently in Chambers County, Texas only long enough to be included on the 1860 census, which was the first census of Chambers County, the county having been established in 1858. They are included in the Wallisville sector of the county, just east of the Trinity River.
I list them here by name, age, sex, occupation & birthplace:

Isaac - 72 - M - Laborer - North Carolina
Susan - 66 - F - North Carolina

Then, in household next door:

Calvin - 31 - M - Laborer - North Carolina
Susan - 21 - F - Alabama
Sarah J. - 3 - F - Texas
Daniel - 1 - M - Texas

In this household are also listed:

Collin Barnes - 4 - F - Texas
Francis M. - 1 - M - Texas
Eli J. W. - 22 - M - Farmer - Mississippi
Flora E. - 16 - F - Mississippi

Hope this is of some assistance. This is about all we have as our courthouse burned in 1875, destroying all previous records of the county.
