You are welcome!I'm glad to help.I found a couple more things.It wasn't Eula who died young, it was Amy E.I don't know if this is her, but there is a death record for an Amy Ethel McGaugh d. 25 Nov 1914 in Hunt Co., TX.Another researcher (from rootsweb) claims she had Typhoid Fever.The 1920 census is difficult to read, but the ages are clear and Eula would have been 15, Amy would have been 17.Eula is the sister enumerated in 1920, not Amy.The Ray in the 1920 census is enumerated as Jessie R. in 1930 in Cooke Co., TX.Allie, Elmer's wife was Laura Alice Parker.
I also found Elmer's WWI draft registration.His name was Elmer William McGaugh b. 13 Oct 1879 in Pilot Point.It states residence as Cooke Co., TX.There is a SSDI record for him that puts his death in Dec 1963.Texas Death Records confirms 23 Dec 1963 in Harris Co., TX.Harris county seems a bit far from home, but not impossible.If you can, ask relatives if they can confirm Elmer William dying in or near Houston.
I tried to find Elmer William McGaugh in 1880.I found two possibilities, but neither is very convincing.The other possibility is that they were missed in the 1880 census.

There was another McGaugh family in Cooke Co., TX in 1880.John M. McGaugh (d. 28 Jul 1935) and wife Marjorie E. (d. 17 Jun 1930) were enumerated as J. M. and Me. McGaugh.
1880 Cooke Co., TX J.M. McGaugh 34 TN TN AL Me. McGaugh 33 TN TN NC De McGaugh 12 TN Ella McGaugh 10 TN M.L. McGaugh 7MO Addie McGaugh 5MO Arthur McGaugh 2TX Octa McGaugh TX
Octa is listed as a female.While this may not be Elmer's immediate family, they are possibly kin.
