Looks like Arthur, father and son, moved to TX.
Bondurant, Arthur, Sr., b 28 Dec 1876; d Feb 1963; last residence simply shown as Texas; SS card issued in TX. [TX Dth Idx online begins 1964]
Combined info from SSDI and TX Dth Idx:
Bondurant, Arthur, Jr., b 7 Nov 1905; d 6 Mar 1987 Harris Co, TX; last residence Houston, Harris Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.
A copy of the death certificate for Arthur Sr. should show the names of his parents, if the informant had that knowledge. On the other hand, he filled out his own application for his Soc Sec card, and it will show names of his parents, his residence at time of application and other data.
The only Arthur Bondurant born in any state between 1870 and 1880 I can find is the following:
1880 census Lockport, Henry Co, KY:
Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.
John BONDURANT Self M Male W 31 IN Farming IN PA
Florence BONDURANT Wife M Female W 24 KY Keeping House KY KY
Mary BONDURANT Dau S Female W 8 KY At Home IN KY
James BONDURANT Son S Male W 6 KY IN KY
Sarah BONDURANT Dau S Female W 5 KY IN KY
Authur BONDURANT Son S Male W 2 KY IN KY
Mary PARTHY Other S Female W 23 KY House Keeping KY KY
This is where the missing 1890 census hurts your search. By 1900 John is still in Henry Co, KY, but with second wife and more young children. One daughter from the 1880 census is still at home, Sarah 24. John owns farm free and clear, you might check records see what happens to that land when he dies. Who shows up as heirs???
I find it interesting on the 1900 census Arthur is a convict guard in the AL State Prison in Elmore Co, AL. Maybe he struck out from KY on his own.
If you're looking for TX descendants in this family, you might look for obituaries for the two men. Clayton Library in Houston has great genealogical collection and probably has back issues of the local newspaper. Or, try the RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) site, lots of volunteers listed for Harris Co, TX.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
