My grandmother Irene Alizanah McFarland Hall (1901-2000) was named after Alizanah B(achman?) Ladd (1886-1982). I believe they were neighbors in West Bend, Iowa in the early 1900s. My grandmother referred to Alizanah's mother Jean Forest Bachman as "Auntie Bachman", but so far I don't believe they were actually related.
I believe she actually died in Tucson, not Phoenix, so you may want to check the Tucson papers. I'm pretty sure I have a letter she sent my grandmother from Tucson shortly before her death.
She is buried with her husband Clarence (1885-1953) in Oak Hill Cemetery, Estherville, Iowa. Her parents Dr. Edsil Watson Bachman (1854-1924) and Jean Forest Bachman (1865-1935) are buried there too.
Hope this helps! If you find any connection between this family and the McFarlands or Walkers, please let me know (TimHall1@gmail.com).
For what it's worth, Alizanah had a sister named Ruth Bachman (1884-1978) who married James "Ed" Stockdale (1880-1958). I think Clarence and Alizanah had at least 2 children, once named Ruth Mary (1914-1930) and another named Elizabeth B. who has a son named Stephen married to a woman named Carolyn.
Hope this helps -
