Have you used the LDS website http://www.familysearch.org -- they now have the 1880 census online. On the left side of the first screen, you will see the link:

Smith, Benjamin--head----31 -- b TN -- fth TN, mth SC
Smith, Louiza------wife----24 -- b AR -- fth AL, mth TN
Smith, Arthur------son-----05 -- b MO -- fth TN, mth AR
Smith, Rosa--------dau-----02 -- b TX -- " "
Smith, Albert------son-----1mth- b TX -- " "

Grayson Co, TX, Precinct 6, page 323C.

Most of the 1890 census was destroyed, but find out where researchers in your area go to look at federal census records, follow up on the 1900, 1910 and 1920 censuses, too. See if Benjamin and Louiza stay in Grayson Co, or if they move on. TX began keeping vital records in 1903, and if Benjamin and Louisa lived long enough they would have generated death records. Death certificates should show the names of their respective set of parents. Let's hope they didn't die in Grayson Co, TX, as they had a courthouse fire in the 1930s.

Also, on the 1900 census it will ask how many children a woman has had, and how many living at the time of the census, this will give you an idea if there were more children after Albert, even if they have already left home in 1900.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
