[SC] In Search of BUOYS: 1880

I have found my GGGrandfather, Sonnie NORRIS in the 1880 Census, age 21 along with his brother Walter Marcus NORRIS age 17, both listed as Cousins to the HOH, Tillman BUOY. I am desperate to find the FATHER of Sonnie and Marcus as well as the city and/or county in SC of their Father. Possibly the HOH, Tilman Buoy, their Cousin will lead me back to the Parents but, the BUOY's seem to have appeared out of nowhere in the 1880 Census. Additionally, I've had no luck in finding the Aunt , Caroline Roberts, in the household any earlier than 1880, she too is a thread back to the Parents. Where were they all before 1880? Would love any assistance possible, some info listed below:

I know Sonnie/Marcus' Mother, Eliza Norris, was born January, 1838, SC but, I have no idea of her Maiden name or the City and/or County of her birth as well.

Also, yes, I've seen Liza MORRIS in 1880 with the four sisters, Dina, Millie, Susan and Mary but, again they are shown without the Father and Liza (Eliza) is listed as a widdow.

Thank You
