One odd thing. The 1940 census lists Willie and Pearlie Mae as married but they did not get married until 1943. Maybe they weren't married by the state until 1943?
1920 Census listing Dixie and other relatives
Bear in mind 1940 is the last census released. 1950 will not be released until 2022.
See if this helps.
