GRESHAM & GLAZE surnames, moved from GA to TX around 1890

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gresham and Glaze

I am seeking info on my g-grandmother, Susan Glaze (b.1863 - d.1895-1900) oldest child (of 12) of Houston Glaze (1828-1898) & Mary Jane Parks Glaze (1843-1921), of Lincoln County, GA.

Susan married John Kauffman Gresham, of Wilkes County, GA., somewhere around 1880-1881, and had 3 sons (George Houston, Fred Parks, & Otis Quinn

I would also like to get parents/grandparents confirmed (with dates) for John Kauffman Gresham.

The info I have on John K. Gresham (1854-1907) is even more brief. Possible parents: George Gresham & Nancy S. Gresham. If those are the correct parents, then he had 5 brothers (Rufus, William, Edward, Benjamin, & George) and one sister (Lucy Ann).

I know John moved Susan & their sons to Texas (either Collin County or Denton County) in the late 1880s or early 1890s, but by the 1900 Census the sons had been sent back to Lincoln County, GA to live with relatives (but no mention of Susan) while John remained in TX and worked as a laborer, living as a boarder. He is classified as "single" on the 1900 Census.

I have been unable to locate any 1890 Census records -- wasn't there one done that year?

Do I have any Gresham relatives in the Collin or Denton County areas?

Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction!
