Frances Farmer

Wiki info

Frances Elena Farmer was born on September 19, 1913 in Seattle, Washington, the daughter of Lillian (née Van Ornum; 1873–1955), a boardinghouse operator and dietician and Ernest Melvin Farmer (1874–1956), a lawyer. Her father was originally from Spring Valley, Minnesota, while her mother was from Oregon, and a descendant of pioneers. Her great grandparents through Lillian's mother, Elizabeth (Rowe) Van Ornim's side, are John and Jemima (Skews) Rowe who came to Waldwick, Wisconsin from Truro, England in 1849. Farmer had an older sister, Edith; one older brother, Wesley, and an older half-sister, Rita, conceived during her mother's first marriage. Prior to the birth of Wesley and Edith, Ernest and Lillian had given birth to a daughter who died of pneumonia in infancy. When she was four years old, Farmer's parents separated, and her mother relocated with the children from their home in North Seattle to Los Angeles, where her sister Zella was living. In early 1925, the family moved north to Chico, California, where Lillian pursued a career performing nutrition research. Shortly after arriving in Chico, Lillian concluded that caring for the children was interfering with her ability to work. The children's Aunt Zella then drove them to Albany, Oregon, where they boarded a train back to Seattle to live with their father.
