I found Pete and Lavina's family in Jackson Co, IL for the 1870 census accompanied by Rebecca (Dacus) Knight, now a widow and a child "Rose?" (6 months). The family had returned to Tipton Co by 1880 and lived in Civil District 3. Rebecca was still close at hand, living with the Cates family a few doors away from her daughter Lavina
I received the information on their last child, Effie Maudie, from a descendant who responded when I posted a reference to this timeline on

Dates of marriages for Lavina and her daughters come from the Tipton County marriage book.
