Precious Pearl Ayala/Vina Brown of Lower Cove; Brown & McWhirt_ er rel

I believe Vina on the 1901 Census and Precious Pearl on the 1911 Census are
the same lady.

I have her m/1 Hollis Stuart Spence, born Jul 1901, Parrsboro, on 21 Dec
1922, Baptist Parsonage, Amherst. Five years later, she's m/2 Fred Tait in
Michigan, 1927. Did Hollis die or were they divorced??????

Possible Pearl has siblings, Annie Elva, William Earl, Charles A., Ethel
Orle, LeRoy Edgar and Jessie G. Brown.

I have a marriage for George Brown and Edith McWhirter of 4 Sep 1897 but
can't locate the record.
