    The transcription of Purvis' 1920 census record is mangled in Ancestry.com.  One problem is it appears the enumerator's strange handwriting bumfuzled the inexperienced transcriber, with strange letters and a misspelling of Jewel as Juil.  We think the folliwng is what was intended in the original record.
