1930 census Haskell Co, TX:

Coates, John W. h, 39, m @ 25 yrs, b TX, TX, TX
" Nell, w, 37, m @ 24 yrs, b AL, AL, AL
" Iris C., d, 12, b TX
" Inez, d, 11, b TX
" J.W., Jr., s, 9, b TX
" Carrol(sic) L., d, 6, b TX
" Elsie L., d, 3 11/12, b TX

Same Page:

Coates, Curtis, hm, 20, sgl, b TX, TX, TX
" Emma E., mother, 65, wid, m @ 2?, b TX, TX, TX

1920 census Haskell Co, TX:

Coates, John, h, 29, md, b TX, TX, TX
" Nill(sic), w, 27, md, b AL, AL, AL
" I___, d, 3, b TX
" I___, d, 10/12, b TX (probably Iris and Inez)

Next door:

Coates, Charlie, h, 56, m, b TX, TX, AL
" Emma, w, 55, m, b TX, TX, TX
" Cecil, s, 16, b TX
" Jessie, s, 13, b TX
" Curtis, s, 10, b TX
______, Wesley, 23, b TX (could not read surname)

1910 census Jones Co, TX:

Coats(sic), Charles C. or E., h, 45, M(1) 20 yrs, b TX, US, US
" Emma E., w, 44, M(1) 20 yrs, 8 ch, 8 lvg, b TX, TX, TX
" John, s, 19, b TX
" L___, s, 17, b TX
" Lockie, d, 15, b TX
" Ernest, s, 12, b TX
" Fannie, d, 9, b TX
" Cecil C., s, 6, b TX
" Jesse, A., s, 5, b TX
" Curtis, s, 7/12, b TX

Two pages away is a John L. 42, b TX, maybe a bro to Charles??

1900 census Nacogdoches Co, TX:

Coats(sic), Charley C., h, b Jun 1864, 35, M 11 yrs, b TX, TX, AL
" Emma E., w, b Dec 1865, 34, M 11 yrs, 5 ch, 4 lvg, b TX, TX, TX
" John Wesley, s, b Sep 1889, 10, b TX
" Lee W., s, b Mch 1893, 7, b TX
" Lockey P., d, b Mch 1895, 5, b TX
" Ernest H., s, b Oct 1897, 2, b TX

I would check out land and probate records for Nacogdoches Co, TX, I think you'll find Charles/Charley as an heir on one of the Coats/Coates estates.

Just playing around, nothing concrete, on the 1870 census for Nacogdoches Co, TX:

Coats, Lucy A., 34, b VA
" Robert, 14, b TX
" Hersula, 12, b TX (female)
" Charles M., 10, b TX
" Candace, 9, b TX
" Napoleon B., 7, b TX

1860 census Nacogdoches Co, TX:

Coats, Charles M., 30, b AL
" Lucy A., 24, b VA
" Wm. C., 9, b AL
" Robert, 5, b TX
" ? A., 4, b TX
" Charley, 4/12, b TX

Next Page:

Coats, Daniel P., 60, b SC
" Nancy, 50, b SC
" W. W., 34, b AL (male)
" C.C., 20, b AL (male)

Next door:

Coats, Daniel F., 29, b AL
" Harriet, 21, b TN
" Odelia N., 3, b TX
" Elizabeth A., 1, b TX
" Eudora 3, b TX

I would say Daniel P. is probably father of Daniel F., and Charles M. Since Lucy shows up without husband on 1870, be sure to check out land and probate records for Daniel P., if Charles M. is his heir, then his children should receive his share of Daniel's estate.

You didn't include the info on Emma, but I think this is her and a brother, apparently orphaned and living with maternal grandparents. 1880 census Newton Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Jackson COGBURN Self M Male W 64 GA Farmer NC NC
Martha COGBURN Wife M Female W 58 GA Keeping House GA GA
Trojan CARLTON GSon S Male W 11 TX Works On Farm GA MO
Emma CARLTON GDau S Female W 15 TX GA MO

On the 1870 census, it gets interesting, no Emma or Trojan, maybe Jackson had two daughters who married Carlton brothers??? 1870 census Newton Co, TX:

Cogburn, Jackson, 54, b GA
" Martha, 48, b GA
" Jane C., 18, b TX
Carlton, Elizabeth, 27, b AL (hus may have died in Civil War)
" Martha, 11, b TX
" William, 8, b TX

1860 census Newton Co, TX:

Cogburn, J., 45, b GA
" Martha A., 37, b GA
" Ophia, 13, b AR
" Jane C., 11, b TX
D____, W.W., 27, b GA (can't read surname)

Next Door:

Carlton, J.B., 25, b AL
" Elizabeth, 19, b GA
" Martha M., 11/12, b TX
" James, 52, b SC (probably father of J.B.)
" Joel, 18, b AL
" John, 17, b AL
" L____, 11, b MS (male) - can't read given name

Well, this gives you some names to follow up on, and prove or disprove, plus counties in TX, too.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
