Quanah is in Hardeman Co, TX, a neighboring county is Childress, both on the TX, OK state line.Looks like this could be "cousin" Reuben.
1910 census Childress Co, TX:
Douglas, Tom, h, 38 M(1) 7, b AR, MO, AR
" Willie, w, 27, M(1) 7 yrs, 1 ch, 0 lvg, b TX, don't know, dk
Bourland, Ruben(sic), fth-in-law, 62, M(1) 40 yrs, b TX, KY, KY
" Willie F., mth-in-law, 58, M(1) 40 yrs, 7 ch, 2 lvg, b TX, KY, KY
1900 census Montague Co, TX:
Bourland, Reuben M., h, b Dec 1849, 50, M 29 yrs, b TX, KY, TN
" Willie, w, b Feb 1853, 47, M 29 yrs, 7 ch, 2 lvg, b TX, TN, KY
" Ruby R., d, b Sep 1881, 18, b TX
" James R., brother, b Mar 1827, 73, sgl, b KY, KY, KY
Howard, Earle, boarder, b Mar 1876, 24, sgl, b TX, IL, AL
Bearden, John W., boarder, b Feb 1875, 25, sgl, b TX, AR, TX
I thought James R. being listed as a brother might be an error, birth locations for his parents and those of Reuben do not match, and quite an age gap, but in 1910 Ruby is married and stays in Montague Co, TX and "uncle" James R. 83, sgle b KY, KY, KY is living with her and her husband.
The online census index I have access to has to match spelling exactly and I'm not finding the Bourlands too easy.But, on the 1900 census in the Indian Terr, I stumbled across a Reuben Bourland 80, b KY, widowed, living with a widowed son-in-law.Do you suppose Reuben is one of those "family" names????
Wonder if this is "uncle James R. Bourland" who never seems to get married, in Ada Co, ID in 1880???

On the 1880 census the only Bourland that comes close being born in TX and right age to be Rueben is this one in Cooke Co, which is next door to Montague Co, TX:
