Research notes for Alfred Earl Heathcock
I still can't find Alfred Earl in 1920 but I found Clara listed with her mother in Cairo IL:

Name                 Age
Harriet Simpson 63 head widow keeper of a rooming house
Clara Heathcock 43 dau married b Kentucky, parents both born Kentucky
Willa May Winn 23 grand-dau single
Rollo J Halle   23 boarder
Treva Halle       23 boarder
Katherine Halle   2 boarder

Note that it says Clara is "married" not "widow" like her mother.  This tells me that Alfred Earl was still around somewhere but not yet found in the census.  Willa May Winn was presumably Clara's daughter by her first marriage.
