Have you checked land records in Grayson Co, TX? I see the Family History Library has microfilmed index to land records 1846-1900 and land records to 1886. You could check index see when final sale of land was made. You want those records where index indicates "et al", that means "and others". It often indicates heirs. They will have to sign off to give clear title to the buyer. You may see listings that show "et ux" that means "and wife."
This is where the missing 1890 census could hurt you. They may have moved after the 1880 census, spent their golden years with married son or daughter, died and buried in that county.
Archived section of the Grayson Co, TX GenWeb site shows not all cemeteries in the county are online, yet.
You might post on the Grayson Co, TX forum and GenWeb sites, see if anyone has access to a cemetery publication and could check for your couple.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
