    Mayme Barker is Belle (Jenkins) Padgett Williams' daughter, who was married and then widowed apparently without children.  This daughter matches the daughter named Annie in 1920.  I have insufficient clues to tell me the order of the names.  I will use Annie Mayme.  A family genealogy has Mayme's name as Mayme Mae, but provides no documentation for this or other information presented.
