Davenport, Sarah? Elizabeth Jane

Considerable confusion over which Elizabeth Jane is which. Both born about 1875. One married Samuel Hankins and the other born to Miles Davenport and Catherine Gulley married Simpson Russell. This one called "Sarah E" in 1880 Census but Betty after that up to 1930 Census when mother "Katherine" is living with her in Davidson County, TN.
Death cert of "Elizabeth Davenport Jenkins" d/o Milas Davenport and Katherine Gulley. "Bettie Russell" married "Alfred Jenkins" 12 Mar 1932 in Macon Co, age matching.

"Betty Jane Davenport" related to Burr or "J B" Davenport in Court records

"Bettie Davenport" in marriage cert.
"Bettie Russell" in 1900 Census
"Elizabeth J Russell" in 1910 Census
"Betty Russell" in 1920 Census
"Betty J Russell" in 1930 Census

added after the Samuel Hankins marriage. Believe this is the correct marriage however for Betty Jane. Another marriage confirms S D Hankins married "L J Davenport" - she is "Eliza J Hankins" in census and descendants know her as Jane, so I need to find another Elizabeth Jane Davenport born about 1877.

Home in 1920: Civil District 3, Jackson, Tennessee
