I would check Soundex for 1900 census. This census asks questions not on other census records, gives month and year of birth for everyone in household, how many children every married woman has given birth to, and how many living at time of census. You will pick up info on the children.
I would check Cooke Co, TX GenWeb site, some GenWeb counties are putting their cemeteries online. Also, post your query on that site, and ask if anyone has a copy of published county history, and would they check their copy for any info on your family.
TX began keeping vital records in 1903, and if James & Land died after that date, obtain copies of their death certificates. They should show the names and birth locations of their parents. Accuracy only as good as the knowledge of the informant, by comparing the 2 DCs, you can see if info matches. If all else fails on learning county of their births, post a query on the "unknown" county on the TX GenWeb site.
