It is difficult to tell the details of Vivian's life. Social Security files[1], list her name as:

Jun 1943: Vivian Eloise Jennings
Mar 1947: Vivian Eloise Dobbs
Mar 1956: Vivian Jennings Rush

She married Billy Joe Dobbs 7 Jan 1952, according to an index of Texas marriage records[3], giving her surname as Dobbs. She had 2 children born in 1949 (10 1/2 months apart) - the Texas Birth Index[4] gives the father's name as William Robert Rush for both of them.

Many possibilities exist, including that one or more of these records has an incorrect year, or that Vivian married, divorced and remarried one or more of her husbands, or that Vivian had 2 children out of wedlock (between marriages). It might also be possible that she and William Robert Rush adopted their first 2 children and the adoption records caused their children's names to show up in the birth index for 1949 under their new names. Since the records of their births are in an index, it is impossible to tell if the registrations occurred in 1949 or later.
