This enumerator's handwriting was dreadful.  Carl should be age 36 and married age 34.  The birthplaces of Wilma's parents have been switched.  The mother-in-law's given name and surname have been switched.  The mother-in-law's birthplace and the birthplaces of her parents should be TN.  Plus five boarders surnamed WEBB (obviously) not extracted.
