At the time of this census, there is an elder sister Vesta Ursula Perkins, age 25, but she is already out of the house at this time. I wonder if the wife Ursula was also known as Vesta Urusula, since she is shown as "Vesty" on the Census.

Anna graduated High School in 1910. Anna Belle Perkins attended University of Maine, studying Romance Languages. She was also active in the yearbook board, and Deutscher Verein (German Club).
