I was not able to locate them in a 1900 census. I did find a William and Sarah, whose ages were close, but Sarah was shown to be born in Louisiana, her father in Texas, and her mother in Louisiana. Also, they were shown only to have been married 27 years making the marriage about 1873.  This family was in Lincoln Co Mississippi

In 1910, I believe I have found the correct William, but Sarah is apparently deceased, and he is remarried to Emma E.
