1880 census Grimes Co, TX:

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

R. B. TAYLOR Self M Male W 50 MISS. Farmer --- ---

R. D. TAYLOR Dau S Female W 4 TEXAS MISS AL
Robt. TAYLOR Son S Male W 2 TEXAS MISS AL

1870 census Grimes Co, TX:

Taylor, Robert, 46, b MS - no land shown/personal 200
" Sarah, 28, b TX
" Henry, 9, b TX
" Irene, 3, b TX
" Francis, 8/12, b TX, b Sept (female)

Note difference in ages of Henry and Irene? I think Robert had another wife and she probably was the mother of Henry.

I wonder if this could be "Louise?" Mother's name, year of birth and maiden name match, but father is listed as Zachari Taylor. Wouldn't be the first time there was an error on a DC. Name of informant is blank and she was widowed, who gave that information for her DC???

Look at Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- I typed in Taylor, Berry, born 1830 + or - five years; spouse Musgrove. Aha, someone has another wife, actually Robert's first wife. They show Henry AND Irene as a child of that first wife, but I'm willing to bet she's the daughter of #2 Sarah. I'd contact that submitter find our sources and share what you know.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
