Additional Comments:

Pearle (Wallick) JACOBS was born 18 August 1873 to Capt William F M WALLICK (1842OH-1873IN) and Ann Elizabeth HAGEE (1842PA-1877IN), married 25 June 1868, Miami county, Indiana.

Pearle and sister Maude were orphaned with mother's death 27 October 1877, and

Pearle is found as "servant" in John AKRIGHT (Arkright?) household, Muddy Bayou, Faulkner county, Arkansas in 1880 census. Next found at my mother's death, 2 April 1928 in Kansas City, Missouri. How she got to Marquette, MI from Muddy Bayou, AR is a mystery untold. She would visit her sister Maude in Colorado, and on one occasion her son William Albert (1908MN-1977CA) tossed a baseball high into the sky and caught it to amazement of my cousins, Harriette, b 1921 and William HOPKINS, b 1923, grandchildren of Maude Flora, told me by Harriette in 2003.

Pearle's husband was Albert D JACOBS (1874GER-1963MI).

Pearle is buried in Forrest Hills cemetery, Duluth, MN
