    This individual was identified by social security records, 574-01-7681, his
    marriage certificate to Sarah Alford, Ak. Vital Statistics, and the death
    certificate of his wife Sarah, Ak. Vital Statistics.

    He was living at Metlakatla in 1934.

    His first marriage, to Sarah Alford of Metlakatla was confirmed by their marriage license application, First Judicial District, Ketchikan, AK dated 7 Nov 1924.

    He was then employed as a fisherman at Metlakatla.

    He was enumerated as indian.

    He remarried in 1934 to Sadie Eaton, Ak. Vital Statistics.

    The death certificate of his daughter Sarah gave his city of birth, Ak. Vital
    Statistics.

    He, and two children Emily and Marilyn, were living at Metlakatla in 1962. His wife Sadie Eaton was not listed as living in the home.

    His obituary gave different infomation; it indicated that he was born in Canada on 15 Jun 1904. Ketchikan Daily News 4 Nov 1987

    He tended fish traps for the Metlakatla Indian Community. He was reported as a life-long resident.

    Records of the Presbyterian Church at Metlakatla confuse the issue of his date of birth, he was presented 14 Jan 1906 with a dob of 7 Aug 1903.

    The 1940 BIA census at Metlakatla indicated that he was full blood Tshimsean
    as were both of his two wives.

    This relationship was confirmed by Dorothy McKinnie, Dec 1987. He and his
    brother Lawrence were raised by Abel and Kate Faber.

    Two additional daughters, identified as Marilyn Faber of Seattle, and Bernita
    Brendible of Metlakatla, were named in the obituary of his daughter Velma.
    Absent dates of birth, they could not be listed with either wife. Further
    research is needed. Ketchikan Daily News, 18 Aug 1978.
