These dates may not be exact in the translation but the names matched the obituary for John William Needham.
See link to family through his uncle, Baxter Euing Stout #27860590; or his grandmother Elizabeth Walker Stout, #60562298. Elizabeth Walker Stout and Jeremiah M. Stout had a daughter Rebecca.
I think Pearl was the Lillie listed since the 1930 Census lists Pearl in the household of Baxter Stout at age 35. Her two daughters Hazel and Eunice were in same household. The printed 1930 Census spells Stout as Sturt.
