Looking for a lost relative. She is named for her grandmother Failah Griffin Alexander; who is on the 1910 census in Memphis, Tennessee with family.
CENSUS: 1930 United States Federal Census
Name: Failah Alexander
Home in 1930: Seattle, King, Washington
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1929
Relation to Head of House: Daughter
Father's Name: Joseph J
Mother's Name: Mildred H
MARRIAGE: Four marriages for Failah on the Washington State Digital Archives site.
Thankfully, she had an unusual first name.
These are the ONLY Failah entries in the archives:
MARRIAGE: 1947 Failah G. ALEXANDER and Aaron Dale FORREST
MARRIAGE: 1954 Failah G. FORREST and Neil M. SHERMAN Jr.
MARRIAGE: 1958 Failah G. SHERMAN and Joseph MAYUMUL Jr.
MARRIAGE: I believe this is the correct person in a 1972 marriage, although there are some discrepencies: Failah’s age is given as 43, giving a birth year of 1939, and the last name is now given as YUMUL. The man she was marrying was 39. The signature appears very similar to previous records.
MARRIAGE: 1972 Failah G. YUMUL and Richard Edwin CARLSON.
Anyone knowing this lady, please reply. I have great information to share about her father's family.
