Dear Barbette,

     You have some popular last names to work with.  What last name would Barbara Williams-Wilson have been using when the 1940 census was taken?  Was her brother Paul already born? Were they in Cleveland?

    Maybe you can find an obituary for Mammie Robinson [Buckner or Williams] in a newspaper.  Sounds like she died about 1946 - was that in Cleveland?  If you can find one it might name her parents or brothers & sisters.  

Good luck!  -NGP
