Found this marriage for a Mary Ann Turner year 1895 Sept 1/4 district Wolverhampton, there is a Watson Roberts also listed, so perhaps the sons name should have been Watson not Watna.

Sarah Perkins head wid age 46 born Sedgley
Alfred Perkins son age 15 born Sedgley
Benjamin Perkins age 15 born Sedley
David Perkins son age 4 born Sedgley
Samuel Perkins son age 11 born Sedgley

1891 (looks like someone else are looking for this family as there are two name corrections (Bayliss/Perkins)

civil parish Sedgley reg dist Dudley

Benjamin son age 9 born Sedgley
Joseph son age 16 born Sedgley
Samuel son age 1 born Sedgley

It looks as though the Perkins family on the 1901 census with Elizabeth isnt them. They are on the 1891 census with Elizabeth and a Edward Perkins, so they are her her step children.

There is a Joseph Bayliis (just wondered if he used that name instead of Perkins) on the 1901 census age 23 cousin to a family called Smith.
