You didn't give much information on this couple in your query so I took a look at your message history. You gave more on the Seigler Forum, and you received a good reply. You didn't mention the name was spelled differently on the 1900 census, that can help. Here's a reply to you query there.

There is a John M. "Seaglar" family in the 1900 census of ED 64 Justice Precinct 1 (excl. Cameron city), Milam, Texas, that appears to match your criteria, except for the dates:
Household Gender Age Birthplace
Head John M Seagler M 45 South Carolina, married 14 years
Wife Francis J Seagler F 31 South Carolina
Son Charlie W Seagler M 9 South Carolina
Son John G Seagler M 5 South Carolina
Daughter Pearl S Seagler F 4 South Carolina
Daughter Ada D Seagler F 2 South Carolina
The 1900 census record for this family is here:

They appear 20 years later in the 1920 census of Comanche, Oklahoma:
Household Gender Age Birthplace
SELF John Seigler M 64y South Carolina
WIFE Francis J Seigler F 49y South Carolina
SON Morris S Seigler M 13y Oklahoma
DAU Dorthy Seigler F 23y South Carolina
1920 census record here:

[They're also on the 1910 census in Comanche Co, OK ~ jer]

TX Dth Idx thru 1976. Although Pearl died in TX you'll note her residence was in Lawton, Comanche Co, OK. I would look for her obit there, survivors are usually listed and a good way to pick up married names of female members of the family.

Name: Pearl Saxon
Death Date: 05 Oct 1947
Death Place: Tremont Clinic, Dallas, Dallas, Texas
Gender: Female
Race: White
Death Age: 52 years 10 months 9 days
Estimated Birth Date:
Birth Date: 26 Nov 1894
Birthplace: South Caroline
Marital Status: Divorced
Spouse's Name:
Father's Name: John Marshall Seigler
Father's Birthplace: South Carolina
Mother's Name: Frances Jane
Mother's Birthplace: South Carolina
Occupation: Housewife
Place of Residence: Lawton, Comanche, Okla.
Burial Place: Lawton, Okla.
Burial Date: 05 Oct 1947
Additional Relatives:
Film Number: 2218730
Digital Film Number: 4005472
Image Number: 2479
Reference Number: cn 41388

I'm guessing most of this family lived and died in OK. But did find a "possible" match on the CA Dth Idx:

Seigler, Morris S., b 2/12/1906, OK; d 8/18/1970, Orange Co, CA, age 64 yrs.

Maybe with this info some of the researchers who browse this forum can build on it. Some have access to sources I don't have and they're really good.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
