    The enumerator has made an error here, according to community memory.Earl was a twin with a brother Burrell, according to Edith McSwainJenkins.  Twins are reported in this census, but the twin is a girl.It appears that the enumerator heard Burrell (or Burl) as Pearl, andentered the twin as a female.  According to Edith M Jenkins, Burrellwas retarded.  Few details are known.
