Samuel's brother Charles applied for his social security number two weeks after Samuel, and used the spelling "Cherlin" on his form. At immigration, Ida and Isidor used "Cirlin"

"Chirlin" is the spelling used by the Druje line in the U.S. as well. According to Paul Chirlin, that is an unrelated line.
