Pearl Bryan’s Skull

Pearl Bryan’s skull turned up in quite a few places, but never in the “well” at Bobby Mackey’s. A female skull was found in the field where her body laid later. Another female skull, suspected of being Pearl’s, was found a short distance away from the first. By 1907, over a dozen reports had emerged of Pearl’s skull being found. Many wanted to know how many heads she had, and how so many people found female skulls just lying around. Her skull continued to pop up until the 1910s when another skull was found in a place called Cedar Lake.
