Was Viola Rice related to Joe and Deloris Rice who lived near/nest door to George and Julia Grant in Tallahatchie, MS in the 1920 census?

If so, is Viola Willie's mother or is Julia Willie's mother; did Viola just raise Willie (and Exell)?

1930 Census shows her married at age 18; divorced by the time of the 1930 census. She was living in Memphis in 1930.

Both she and her parents were born in Mississippi
