    AR - El Dorado, BlkFem UP2929, 30-50, SS card 'Melvalyn Washington', Sep'94

    https://identifyus.org/cases/2929

    Partial skeletal parts of a woman, height about 65 inches, found in a wooded area off of Highway 82 West in Union county Arkansas, seems to have been a smoker. She was wearing red and white shorts, something black and brown shoes. This one seems quite solvable since dentals and DNA are available and the deceased had a security card with her. So if it was hers I'm assuming it might be just a matter of locating relatives for a DNA test.

    Anyway the name on the social security card was Melvalyn Doris Washington.
    In the marriage records in Harris county Texas (Houston), there's Melvalyn Doris Jones who was born in about 1953, and married William Henderson Lewis on Sept 24 1968 (she was 15!!), he was 36 (born about 1932). They divorced in Feb 1973.

    Melvalyn D. Jones has married William Washington Jr. , also in Harris county Texas.
    This anonymous question suggests they might have had two children, one possibly named Aisha? One possibly adopted?

    It's about 333 miles and 5.5 hours from Houston TX to El Dorado AR.

    DOB in about 1953 would make her fortyish in 1994 which is in the range.

    According to porchlight (quoting older version of Namus info) the number of the card was 456-96-5045
