Samuel Donnell, Humphreys Co, TN

I am trying to find a link to or from Samuel Donnell of Humphreys Co. TN.

This is my wife's great grandfather.

He would have been born around 1827-1828 in Tennessee.
He Married a Sarah J.

They had the following children:
Thomas Alexander DOnnell, born 1861 Humphreys CO. TN
James DOnnell, born 1863-1864
Martin Luther Donnell, born 1869
Edward N. Donnell, born 1873-1874
Willie Donnell, born 1876-1877

All children were born in Humphpreys Co. TN.

I cannot find anything about the parents before the birth of the children.

I can find census data 1870 and 1880, and then the family disappears.
The 1880 census says that Samuel Donnell had consumption (so he might have died, and some of the children might have caught it as well, but I cannot find death records or anything after the 1880 census).

Thomas Alexander Donnell turns back up in 1910 (my wife's grandfather).
All others disappear.

Anyone have information on this family?
