Jehu or Jahue V. Bens

Looking for info on family of Jehu V. Bens, brother of James, Lewis Cain, and Albert Bens or Benns or Benn. J.V.Bens last noted in the 1910 census for Wetumka, Hughes Co., Oklahoma with wife "Landa" or "Londa". Born about 1850 in Alabama, he first shows up in 1860 living with his sister-in-law's brother in Lawrence Co., TN. Then in 1880 in Randolph Arkansas as a farm laborer, and then 1900 in Montague TX with wife "Amanda" and son William E, and listed in census as "Jahue". By 1910 J.V. is living in Hughes Co., OK a few houses away from his son William E. Bens and his wife Eliza and their 2 daughters, (?) and Ruth. The trail grows cold there. Any connections?
