Recent (2009) research by "Perf" Bill Edwards and Nora Hulse concludes that Ethel Earnist is a real person and not a pseudonym which was previously attributed to Chas. L. Johnson for the composition Peanuts: A Nutty Rag (1911).
She was born in Odell, Nebraska but moved to Omaha while still quite young and later worked there in a music store. On moving to Kansas City, Missouri she was employed as a musician by J.W. Jenkins' Sons Music Co.. She died in Kansas City.
