Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

After marrying Raymond, the couple lived in Los Angeles before moving to Downey around 1959, and to Buena Park a few years later (1963?).

The 1930 U.S. Census mistakenly lists Pearl as "Perl E." and states her relationship to father Edward as "son."
