By now you may have found what you wanted, but hard to tell much about these people from your query. Dates are helpful. I was looking for them dying in TX, but after finding them on the census looks like they may have died too early to be on the index.

1880 census Parker Co, TX:

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

Johnathan ISOM Self M Male W 47 TENN ALABAMA BADEN
Susan ISOM Wife M Female W 45 TENN NC NC
Olive M ISOM Dau S Female W 15 ARK TENN TENN
James E. ISOM Other S Male W 8 TEXAS TENN TENN

1870 census Scott Co, AR (more children then you listed):

Isom, Jonathan, 38, b TN - no land/personal 400
" Susan C., 32, b TN
" Alice E., 14, b AR
" Matilda, 7, b AR
" Lavinia E., 2, b AR
Johnston, Lavinia, 32, b TN
" John C., 14, b AR
" James A., 13, b AR
Isom, Lucinda, 19, b AR
[I'm guessing Lavinia Johnston is the widowed sister of Jonathan or Susan???]

1860 census Clark Co, AR:

Isham[sic], Jonathan, 26, b TN land 250/personal 200
" Susan, 23, b TN
" Ellen, 4, b AR
" W.S., 2, b AR
" W.J., 1/4, b AR
" W., 36, b AL - hireling [male]
" Lucinda C., 10, b AR
" Minerva, 8, b AR
[Could W. age 36, b AL be a brother to Jonathan? If so, see the following, maybe their father?]

Isham, Charles, 60 b AL
" Hannah, 44, b IL
" Polly Ann, 25, b [not clear but looks like S.A.]
" G.W., 20, b [same as above]
" Lucinda E., 15, b AR [another Lucninda, maybe a family name?]

There's another Isham in the county, too. Edward 35, b TN, with his family born in AR.

You don't say how the Roby family fits in, could this be the Ellen from the 1860 census?

T.J. ROBY Self M Male W 30 MISS Farmer TENN ALA
Alla Ellyn ROBY Wife M Female W 22 ARK Wife Housekeeper TENN TENN
Laury L. ROBY Dau S Female W 2 TEX TENN ARK

Thomas J. and "Ollie" are on the 1900 census and they have a son named Sewel J. This looks like his DC.
