Unfortunately the 1880 census does not ask anything about land, so you can't tell if the widow McClain owns any land. I would check land, probate and guardianship records in Parker Co, TX. He left minor children and if he did own land the court would appoint a guardian to report back to the court of any sale of the estate, to protect the interests of those minor children.
And, when that land is sold the heirs, or their guardian, will have to sign off to give clear title to the buyer. McClain doesn't seem to be too common, so with the name of the widow and those children, it should be fairly easy to tell if you have the estate of the right "Mr." McClain.
Check RAOGK (Randome Acts of Genealogical Kindness) site:
There are two volunteers listed for Parker Co, TX, maybe one of them will check out the cemetery you want.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
