TX didn't begin to officially record vital records until 1903, and some counties didn't get on board until later. I don't see a DC for Robert Newton Graves. He was on the 1910 census, but I don't see him on the 1920 census. I'm willing to bet he and Sarah are buried together at the Mount Olivet Cemetery.

I found Rosa, so you might play around with the index, see if you can come up with more family members.
