Alice & William are my 2nd great grandparents
Arbelle (Trotter) Farris is my 2nd great aunt by blood. Jeff Farris is my 2nd great uncle by blood.

In the last years of her life Alice was cared for by her eldest daughter Chloe Farris Walker. Alice passed away peacefully at Chloe's home. The "Old Farris" place in Wayne County on the outskirts of Cisne was passed down to Chloe & her daughters, unfortunately the house has since burned to the ground.
