I thought maybe Inez might marry the boarder, James Hart, but found him on the 1930 census with a different wife. Her name is Carrie, 34 and married at age 31, so that narrows it down some for you on death of Inez. Since he is still in Jefferson Co, TX, I would assume Inez died in Jefferson Co.

I tried page 80 for the roll of film that had 1900 Chambers Co, TX and it came up Cherokee Co, several counties on the same roll. So, I went back and looked for all the given names and found them. Indexer had put them down as Wilmore. The "p" in the name Campbell on the line above came down and "blended" with the "h" in Wilshire, confusing the indexer, I'm sure. (^_^)

1900 census Chambers Co, TX:

Wilshire, William G., h, b Oct 1859, 40, M 10 yrs, b TX, TX, TX
" Mary, w, b Mch 1873m, 27,m M 10 yrs, 6 ch, 5 lvg, b IN, MD, OH
" Inez, d, b Jun 1882, 18, b TX, TX, TX
" Herman, s, b Apr 1884, 16, b TX, TX, TX
" William, s, b M__ 1882, 8, b TX, TX, IN
" Myrtle, d, b Feb 1884, 6, b TX, TX, IN
" [dark at bottom of page, unable to read except "dau"
" Annie M., d, b Oct 1898, 1, b TX, TX, IN

[Inez and Herman obviously had a different mother]

The only William Wilshire about the right age on the 1880 census:

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