|Birth: ||Aug. 19, 1912|
|Death: ||Nov. 27, 1957|
Carl's parents are Ed Farris and May Edna Henderson (Find A Grave Memorial# 18528676). After an indiscretion on her part Ed declared an informal divorce with local law officials.
Later married Edna's sister Erie Ellen Henderson (Find A Grave Memorial# 25520977) This can be seen in the 1930 census where Erie has been married to Ed for 16 years, and so this means that the marriage would have occurred around 1914.
Erie raised her sister's son Carl Wallace Farris as her own. May Edna later re married James Demumber Riley and even claimed in the 1930 census that she was married to him at 15 so no history of her previous marriage with Ed is shown.
None of this is meant to be disrespectful, it is just documenting what family members have told me who were 'in the know' of the events.
Carl Wallace Farris, 611 S. Fitzhugh, passed away Wednesday. Survived by wife, Mrs. Carl Farris; son, Max Farris; daughter, Mrs. Margo Vines, Austin; father Ed Farris, mother, Mrs. J. D. Riley.
