Lilly is really a daughter of Susan and her first husband, and thus a stepdaughter of Mastin. Her surname should be listed as McGill.

Their daughter Maggie and her husband Charles Adkins are living in the same dwelling, but given a new family number and separate household status.
Notes for Susan Oakley
I cannot find her in the Kentucky death records.
In 1920 she was listed in Elliott Co. as Susan Cox, 86, widowed, mother-in-law, with her daughter Nervie.
