Obituary for Elizabeth M. (Failor) Barclay
Carlisle, Perry Co., PA, The Sentinel, 28 Nov 2004:
[The only change was apparently in the first paragraph.]

Funeral services for Elizabeth M. Failor Barclay, 73, of 361 Easy Road, Carlisle, were held Nov. 26 in Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, 630 S. Hanover St., Carlisle.

His young family (wife, Caroline & 2 children) is also in the 1930 census of Philadelphia, PA, living next door to his parents, also Parker Failor and wife Wilhelmina.
In the 1920 census of Philadelphia he is 13 y/o living in his parents household his parents are Parker W. Failor and Wilhelmina (--?--) Failor.
The Parker W. Failor household is also in the 1900 census of Philadelphia prior to his birth. According to this census both Parker W. and Wilhelmina Failor were born in PA and their parents were born in PA.

The Failor family of the husbands of two of my great grandaunts, was known to have been in Cumberland Co., PA, since before the Revolution. It is possible that Parker W. Failor is a descendant of the same family but it would take more work to prove that true.
