Is anyone researching Henry Harris that was in Gonzales Co. Tx. in 1880?

1880 Gonzales Co. Tx.
Name age Born
Harris, Henry C. 35 Ala.
Malinda J. 25 Tx.
Emma F. 12 Tx.
Sarah E. 10 Tx.
Mattie A. 6 Tx.
Henretta 3 Tx.
James 3/12 Tx.

I am very interested in the daughter Emma F. Harris. Wondering if this could be 2nd wife of Clofer Jones. Information from family members a Jim Harris from the area of Oklahoma City was a relative ( possible brother?) of Emma's. Jim is sometimes nickname for James.

1. Clofer J. JONES was born abt. 1857 in La.. He died on 26 Jan 1930 in Karnes Co. Tx.. He was buried in Kenedy, Karnes Co. Tx..

Clofer married (1) Medina SLAUGHTER about 1879.

They had the following children:

10 M ix. William JONES was born in Apr 1880 in Victoria Co. Tx..

+ 11 F x. Lillian Beatrice JONES was born on 26 Jul 1881.

12 M xi. Lee JONES .

Clofer married (2) Emma Frances HARRIS daughter of Harvey HARRIS and Unkown Key abt. 1890 in Victoria Co. Tx.. Emma was born in 1867/1869. She died on 13 Jan 1925. She was buried Kenedy, Karnes Co. Tx..
Note: Can't find a Harvey Harris in 1860, 1870 or 1880 Tx. Census. ( Harvey possible nickname?)
They had the following children:

+ 2 M i. Ocy JONES was born on 28 Jan 1891. He died on 20 Apr 1977.

+ 3 M ii. Obie Tyman Sr. JONES was born on 27 Apr 1893. He died on 6 Sep 1968.

+ 4 M iii. Clofer Harris Sr. JONES was born on 18 Dec 1895. He died on 20 Jan 1992.

+ 5 M iv. Omer JONES was born about 1898. He died on 16 Sep 1954.

+ 6 F v. Kate Elizabeth JONES was born on 28 Sep 1900. She died on 10 Jul 1961.

+ 7 F vi. Gladys Grace JONES was born on 30 Dec 1901. She died on 24 Aug 1988.

8 F vii. Meadey JONES was born in 1912 in Karnes Co. Tx.. She died on 29 Jul 1931 in Tx..

9 M viii. Tillis JONES was born in 1914 in Karnes Co. Tx..

Tillis disappeared between 1955 to 1960. The ones living have no ideal what
happened to him.

Note: Emma Harris parents names were taken from Death Certificate. On Census Emma states father was born in Al., on death cert it states he was born in Tn. On census Emma states mother was born in Tx.

Any help on this would be deeply appreciated.

Thank You,
Nita Jones
