Zelner Herchel (Jack) Bedwell was born about 1905 in Tennessee.810 He was also known as Hershell Bedwell.

(might be Oula A.), age 24; Willa M., age 5+; and James E., age 1+. The Millers have been married for seven years. This might be Zelner Hershell Bedwell, but if it is, who is Jula/Oula? She was not in the household of Elbert Priest Bedwell during the 1920 Census.
