George Lynn & Elizabeth Rolison/Rolason Georgia

I amseeking info on William Henry Rolison of Toombs/Tattnall County, GA. Believed to had a brother called "Jake" and possibly a sister named Susannah. He was married to Mary Leila Stephens and lived/died in Ohoopee, GA. I believe him to be the William listed in 1870 Tattnall Cty census household of Susan Rolason, his age being 10 Months. Also listed in htis household is Elizabeth Rolason, age17 yrs. They are not listed in this household in 1880. The 1880 census has listed in one place, George Lynn, age 24 head of household, wife Elizabeth, age 27, William H. Rolison age 10 yrs. (son), and Joseph C. (Jake?) Rolison, age 8 yrs (son). In another 1880 census listing it shows George as not married. I believe Elizabeth and William H. are same as living with Susan Rolason. Was Elizabeth mother or sister snd who was their father? The cesus shows a Lynn family as neighbors of Susan Rolason. I did not find George and Elizabth in 1890 census.
In 1850; 1870 and 1880 census there were 3 households of Rolason/Rolison with women as head of household. Through these years the names change but ages and birth dates stay the same.
and new children added. Wonder where the men were? Very confusing. I would appreciate any help on this.
