I would say you are doing well, since you found the family when the husband's given name didn't match what your cousin told you. Beginners don't always catch on for a while to that one. One of those names may be a middle name, a bro to one of my ancestors was named Oliver Pierce Rice, but my family called him Pierce, so I thought Oliver was the middle name. I've found him on census records "every which way, but lose". Even Ollie on one record. Were Sarah, her husband, and children in Stephen Co, TX on 1860 & 1870 census, too? If so, I'd check the 1850 census for a Conner family in the area, that has a dau named Sarah about 16 yrs. old. I say "area" for 1850, because Stephens Co, Tx was formed in 1858 from Bosque Co.

Have you looked for Sarah on the 1900 census? The chldren may all be married or gone from home, and her husband might even be deceased by then, but she might be alive, maybe even living with one of her married children. See if she still gives TX as place of birth. The 1900 census asks some questions not included in other census records, too.
