This Lewis is closest match I see on the 1880 census. Unfortunately the 1880 census does not show if land is owned. I would check land records for this county, see if you can find Elisha, either selling his land, or heirs signing off when it is sold. Either prove or disprove this Black family. (^_^)

If funeral home records do not work out for you on death date for Lena, contact TX State Archives in Austin, they have a TX state wide death index 1903-1940 and they should be able to give you full date of Lena's death and county where she died -- if she died in TX.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
