Marriage
Estimate. The 1880 Federal Census shows the mother of his second and third sons recorded here as having been born in England.
Census 1880 US Fed
Living with family at Hempstead, Texas. Machinist. We have an H Close here recorded as a son, but he's much older than the other two and his mother was born in a different place. If he was a son then he should have appeared on 1870 Federal Census and Cephas would have been Married or Widowed. Since none of these seem to have happened, think this is actually the nephew of Cephas, Hiram B Close, son of Augustus Hiram Close.
Marriage
Estimate. The 1880 Federal Census shows Cephas as widowed, so he must have married after that.
