Re: Pouncey family history

My great-grandmother was Mary Lillian Pouncey b Feb. 17, 1881 in TX. She married John W.W. Hudson Apr. 25, 1900 in Hill Co, TX. She died in Feb., 1965. She had a brother named Calvin. Her death certificate shows parents as Benjamin Franklin Pouncey and unknown Welch. I found 8 year old Benjamin Franklin Pouncey in Union Parish, LA 1860 census.
He was the seventh child of E.J. and Elizabeth Pouncey. However, I found Benjamin F. and his wife Julia (Pickens) in later censuses and they had two daughters named Lenore and Nora. My grandfather and his twin sister who are now 90 say their mother didn't have sisters with those names. Only one named Sally. They say Mary Lillian's father died when she was a little girl. Benjamin lived well into the 1900's. Can anyone help me clear this mystery up? I have quite a bit of Texas and Louisiana Pouncey information and am willing to share.
