* The lady's last name could be anything: 1st letter could be capital F, J, or T; 2nd and 3rd letters are “ar” ; and 4th or 5th letter could be any number letters (eu, ue, eee, or w).

From Wilma King: I believe the Farue name should be Farra, and they pronounced it Fay row! The last of the family I remember was Albert Farra and he lived on Highway 9 a mile or so north of Wheeling.
