BRAZELL Family 1920 to present

I've finally located more info on the BRAZELs originally of Georgia:

I'm looking for anyone with knowledge of a death or burial record for Allen
BRAZELL, died between 1920-1930, and his mother Ida BRAZELL, died after 1930,
and my have a death or burial record in Holmes County also.
There was a Mack R. BRAZELL, who died around 1995 that may be the Mack listed
below as a child of Allen and Pearlie (LNU) BRAZELL.

The spelling of BRAZELL is alternately BRAZEL, BRAZZIL, BRASWELL, BRAZIL etc.
The branch of the family that stayed in GA spelled their name BRAZEL.

1920, Coffee Co., Alabama Census:
Brazel (or Brazil), Ben B. age 25
Lizzie, age 30
Kenneth, age 4
Benjamin, age 2
Ida, age 50 (mother)

1920, Holmes Co., Florida Census:
Brazell, Allen, age 24
Pearlie, age 21

1930, Holmes Co., Florida
Brazell, Pearlie, age 28
Della, age 8
Thelma, age 8
Glenis, age 6
Mack, age 4
Ida, age 62 (mother-in-law)

Based upon this new information, there was a period of time that
William B. Brazel and Ida (Jones?) Brazel did not live together, at least from
before the 1920 census, and after the 1930 census. It is not known if they
were divorced. It appears that William B. was considered a widower in the 1930
Randolph Co., GA census. (see below for previous info.)

Other Census Records I've found recently:

1900, Calhoun County, Ga., District 1123
BRAZWELL, Will, age 34, b. Aug, 1865, married 15 yrs., Farmer

1910, Calhoun County, GA., District 1123
BRAZZEL, Will,age 50 (?), married 27 yrs., Farmer

Als (?), age 14

William B. BRAZEL, b. 1863/64, d. 1944, m. date unknown to Ida JONES (b. June
1867 and d. after 1930. In the 1930 Randolph Co., GA Census, he appears as a
widower, and a boarder in the home of Mrs. Willie Hooks and family. He is
listed as having been born in GA. His death certificate lists his father's
name as something that looks like Mark (? nearly illegible) but could be Mans,
Malc, Murt, Murl, Mack, Matt, etc, et al.... Brazel.

William and Ida's children:
Susie Brazel, b. 1885, m. unknown, d. unknown
Gus Brazel, b. 1888 d. date unknown, married to Beatrice "Bea"
Ben B. Brazel, b. 1896, d. 1963, married date unknown to Sarah Elizabeth
"Lizzie" Yelverton.
Allen (Als, Alans, Alance, Allens, Alan, Alenz ? unsure of spelling) Brazel, b.
May 1897.

Iím pretty sure they were all born in Georgia. Ben stayed in Georgia, but Gus
went to Texas and/or California and had children in Shreveport, LA and
Detroit,MI. Allen moved to Holmes County FL.

Ben B. and Lizzie Yelverton Brazel's children:
Kenneth, b. 1915, d. 1999, married Mildred _______
