Hi, There are several Sias families in the 1920 census in Mississippi. I've copied down the info for the oldest head of household in the index. I think you mentioned Shed as a family given name and there is also a Shed Sias on another page with a rather large family. I think ancestry.com has a monthly rate for their census access. (I pay for it by the year but that's where I get most of my info) Years 1790-1850 are indexed as is 1920. What I usually do is find locations for family in an indexed census and then do a page by page look through the images for that location in another census. For instance I would look for Oliver in the same location in the 1880 census next.
I've wound up with so much info that I'm not doing any more searching until I've got what I have organized!
If you do find connections please do post them and when I go back to researching I'll try to pass on anything I find that may be related. Just remember if your connections are still alive it's better not to post them publicly.

1920 census Mississippi, Issaquena, Beat 4, ED# 73

Oliver Sias Sr., Owns farm no mortgage, 71, b. Mississippi, father b. VA, mother b. Kentucky; wife Luticia or Leticia, 69, b. Mississippi, father b. Mississippi, mother b. North Carolina; son Henry, 28, b. Mississippi; granddaughter Luticia Harris, 17, b. Mississippi, parents b. Mississippi, grandson Daniel Harris, 14, b. same; all in family can read and write except wife Luticia.
Next door is Oliver Jr. owns farm no mortgage, age 48, b. Mississippi, wife Mary, 20, b. Louisiana, parents b. Mississippi

Good luck,
Susan
