Irene Roberson of MS?

I am looking for any information on the following people:

Irene Virginia Roberson
b. March 8, 1931
Born in Greenville, MS
Raised in Shelby, MS
I am not sure what year but she married Milton Franklin.

Her children that were born in MS
Gloria Dean
Ruby Jean

She also had five more children (possible that these two may have been adopted by her but not sure)

Gloria Ruth
Ruby Lynn

The above are all living people. I did find some on the census.

Irene's parents:
Fannie Mae Pearl (She died in 1988, Shelby, MS as Fannie Washington)
1906 in Vicksburg, MS
Willie Roberson
Vicksburg, MS
Children (probably not a complete list)
Irene 1931

Fannie's Parents were:
Effie Johnson
Howard Pearl

Things get a bit sketchy at this point. Effie was also married to a Willie Shorter. Effie and Howard were located in the census.They lived in Brandywine, MS. I know that some of Effie's other children were Willie and Nancy.

Howard's Family is as follows according to the 1880 census:
Pearl, Frank B. age 40, b. MS, farmer, father b.
MS, mother b. VA
Pearl, Mariah B., age 36, b. MS housekeeping,
father b. VA, mother b. MS

Eliza Jane, age 21, b. MS, laborer, all b. MS

Laura, age 19, b. MS, laborer, all b. MS

Jimmy, age 10, b. MS, all b. MS

Ella, age 8, all b. MS

John, age 7, all b. MS

If anybody has any info, names sound slightly familiar or can offer any assistance please let me know.
