I'm not related but I did some research for this family and came up with the following. Hopefully you will be able to sort it out.

I believe this is Maud, living with her widowed mother and siblings in Massac Co. in the 1880 census, although the name is spelled as Jeffers. Ancestry has the mother listed as Sarah I. but the letter I and J are often mistaken for each other by transcribers. I've attached census images.

Sarah I. Jeffers, 35

The 1870 census shows the same family in Pope Co., and it looks like "Losia" (from 1880) is actually Lucy.
