This family is listed on 1880 United States Federal Census
Also listed on this census is Sallie Whitehurst (fifty-three year old widow born in Florida) with a daughter Rebecca (nineteen years old born in Alabama) whose father was born in Florida. That census was taken at Richards, Barbour County, Alabama. I agree with Sid that this is probably Reuben's mother and sister.
