Erlin Wilhite and Pearl Pannell Union Co., MS

E. L. Wilhite and Pearl Pannell were married July 19 1908 in Union County Mississippi. Mr. Wilhite's background has been pretty thoroughly covered in the Wilhite forum, but I have been unable to determine which Pannell family Miss Pearl belonged to. Their marriage license does not show any names except theirs, a circuit clerk and a minister, unlike the 18th century marriage bonds that required a third party posting money against the outcome of the promise to marry, often a family member.

I have gone over each available Pearl of that time frame and the only likely one I have is Perlia G. Pannell. I hesitate to settle on her as that might be an error.

Hoping someone will know. They might have shown up in the 1910 or 1920 censuses, however I no longer have access to that information. Knowing who their neighbors are might be a clue.
