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

    I found that Jerry Griffitt reported a different date of death than that shown on Elmer's gravestone.  Jerry says 6 March 1966, and the grave says 9 March.
