    Willie was reported as a male and son in 1910, female and daughter in1920.  Leo was female and daughter in 1910, but male and son in 1920.Note that from these censuses the origin of Robert's wife Lucy isuncertain.  In 1910 she is reported as born in Arkansas, as well asboth parents.  But note that the parents of the children there isreported as born in Arkansas

    This makes it look like Lucy is not the mother of any of thesechildren.  But other factors discount that.  Then in 1920, we see sheis reported as born Texas, with her father born in Missouri and motherborn in Texas.  The children's report is consistent with this,reporting their mother born in Texas.

    Details on the birth of Robert seem consistent.  We might think againthat this Lucy E is a different person, but the same name and similarage seem to make nonsense of that possibility.  Also because the ageis one year less in 1920, this makes it appear that her birthday isbetween January (1920 census date) and May (1910 census date).  LeoEarl was the youngest child of his parents.
