Inez's parents were Jefferson "Jeff" T. [or F.] FARRIS, born Oct. 1865 in Illinois, and Ruth E. FARRIS, born Dec. 1866 in Missouri. In 1900, Jeff worked as a foreman in a smelter, and he and Ruth had been married 13 years.

At age 7, Inez lived in Irrigon, Morrow County, Oregon with her mother, Ruth E., and step-father William S. WOODS. Ruth said this was her 2nd marriage, and that she had given birth to 8 children, but only 7 were still living. In the 1900 and 1910 census records, Inez's siblings were listed as Georgia, Maudie, Elmer J., Una, Hazel F., and William J. In 1900 the Farris family was living in Murray Precinct, Salt Lake County, Utah.

[The WW1 Draft Registration, of June 1917, showed Inez's brother, Elmer Jefferson FARRIS as born in Beaumont, Kansas, 22 April 1894, that he was married, had a baby, and lived in Portland, Oregon.]
