I didn't find anything for Artell Sr. on Genealogy.com, but I did find several articles about Artell Jr.'s 1954-56 trial and execution in Washington state.

A 1954 article about the trial listed his mother as a defense witness. Her name at the time was Mrs. Frieda Jackson, so it looks like she had remarried.

Also, I found Frieda's maiden name for you. It was Lindquist. (Source: Washington Digital Archives)

Hope that helps.

I had no idea that he was executed nor do I know any of the circumstances. I tried googling it but only got web sites where you have to pay for using the Walla Walla newspaper. Can you fill in any details?

Do a google search for "Artell Farley" and select "news" on the far left, then select "archives," again on the left, a little lower down on the page. There are several articles about the case there. Google News Archive is a great (& largely free) resource, but it's kind of a pain to search. This is the best way I've found to do it.

Alternately, if you do a lot of genealogy research, Genealogy Bank is definitely worth the subscription. I've found a lot of great info there, especially old newspapers and more recent obituaries.

Let me know if you have any difficulties. I've got to go now, but if you need I'll send you some links later on.

Best of luck,
Marta
