    Notes 
    • In the 1920 census, Pearl is married to Harvey McKeen and living in Big Lake Twp, Sherburne co, MN where she lived with her parents in 1910.

      Pearl applied for Social Security (probably for a SSN) in Oct 1940, giving her birth date as 20 Oct 1895, and was issued 536165996. She applied in Oct 1977 as Pearl T. Kline and a note says 6 Jan 1956 Pearl A Kline. Lists her parents, so we know it's the same Pearl, but she lists her birth date as 20 Oct 1891. Her SSN was then 558129222.

      1895 Iowa State Census says she was 4, living in Grant, Cerro Gordo co, but this is from an index; I have not seen the actual census. The family is also listed in the Big Lake, MN census in 1905, with Pearl aged 14. This all confirms that she was born in 1891, not 1895.

      Although in her marriage to Roy Mahan, she says she had one prior marriage, she must have had at least 3, as we have seen her as Pearl McKeen, Pearl Kline, and Pearl Will.
