William Bussey/Margaret Ellen Dumas

I am searching for more info on William "Will" Bussey and Margaret Ellen Dumas.
I have NOTHING on Will except family oral history that he existed and his children on census records with his name.
Margaret was b. Aug 1860 in Mississippi (according to census).
She and Will had 4 children:
CLOVIS b.Feb 1886 in TX
JOE R b.Mar 1888 in TX
PEARL NIECE b. 30 April 1890; Durwood, Indian Territory
FRANK b.Oct 1892 in Indian Territory

Will died ca 1893-1898 and Margaret was found on 1900 Chickasaw Nation, I.T. census married to Monroe Beckham with Monroe's other children, her children with Will, and a 6 month old baby named Dewey.

I don't know when Margaret Ellen died or where she is buried. My searching has been mostly by mail, which can sometimes yield erratic results.

Do any of these names sound familiar to anyone?? Any CLUES would be appreciated.
