Willie M. Scott aka Audrey Wilhelmina daughter of Jerry Elmo. Makes sense 'cause he registered for WWI Draft and identified wife plus two as reasons for deferment, 5 Jun 1917. Occasionally, first and middle names are reversed on enumerations. Visualize "Willie M." as "Wilhelmina". Audrey's death certificate confirms Jerry and Priscilla as parents. I believe I saw the sisters boarding in 1930 or 1940 Waller County. Prairie View A & M is a historically black college established in Waller. Online death certificate Lewis L. Johnson (19 Oct 1908 - 28 Jun 1933) died in auto accident per Ida B. Scott, informant. He was son of Bettie Banks/Lewis Johnson, Sr. That's same Bettie Banks found with Phillip and Kitty in 1880. Bettie wed 1 Feb 1881 in Grimes.
