Montgomery County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 5, 1990
Carlsbad
Eddy County
New Mexico, USA

Daugher of Oliver Fain and Emma Kennedy Fain. Sister of Claud Fain, Jewell Fain, Stella Fain Hansford, Pollyanna Fain Clemons, and Marion Leonard Fain. When she was young (1910), her family moved from Tennessee to Egypt, Arkansas. In 1915, the family traveled from Arkansas to Oklahoma by wagon. They settled in Pittsburg County Oklahoma.

Eulah married Claude Alvin Martin on March 23, 1927 in McAlester, Oklahoma. They had one child, Joe Claude, born in December 1927. Claude Alvin was arrested in March 1928 - but no one in Eulah's family knows what happened to Claude Alvin after that (until his death in Guymon, Oklahoma in 1966).

Eulah then married Walter Cantrell on November 30, 1930. They moved to Carlsbad, New Mexico in late 1939. She and Walter had five children - Walter Jr (Buddy), Elizabeth, Tommy Lee, Mary Levona, and Connie Sue. Eulah and Walter divorced. Eulah lived in Carlsbad, New Mexico until her death in 1990.
