Since Robert was listed as divorced, maybe Martha/Mattie remarried??? There are a couple of ladies on the TX Dth Idx that might be her.
Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgihttp://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- I couldn't find Robert, so I tried his brother Anthony. I entered Dacus, Anthony, born 1860 + or - 2 years and there are people working on him. Some show his father as Arter, guess that's where name of Robert's son came from. I would contact some of them, show Anthony as brother to Robert on the 1880 census. They might have some to share back.
On Find a Grave site -- http://www.findagrave.com/index.htmlhttp://www.findagrave.com/index.html - click on find a cemetery, enter Grice, select state of Texas and county of Upshur. Up comes a match. Enter just the surname of Dacus and you will see list of all those named Dacus buried in that cemetery. Robert has a beautiful looking stone.
I see you posted your query on the Dacus forum, did you use the Search this forum box? I tried Grice and Oh My Goodness, you migh want to work your way through some of those posts and maybe contact some of those people and share.
