Leon and Emma (Johnson or Johnston) Odom 1877-1886

I am searching for any information for Leon and Emma Johnston Odom.

In Trinity County, Texas, there are minutes from the court (1882-1886)regarding Guardianship of Mattie Odom. Her mother is listed as Emma Johnson Odom and father Leonidas Odom. This tells me that her parents have died and the guardianship of Mattie went to Emma's father, Robert I. Johnson or Johnston, who is also listed in the same tax record as the father of Emma Johnson Odom.

In the 1880 Trinity County Census, I found a Leon and Emma Johnson, born about 1858 and had a child, Emma as 2 years old. Since Emma as a child was not listed in the court records for guardianship, I can only assume that Emma had died by the time Mattie was born in 1882.

Looking for ANY evidence that can prove that this is my Odom family.
