I am SO, SO, very sorry for the "Help" the other person provided. That type of "help" is TOTALLY worthless. Let me try to correct this inadequate attempt at genealogy.

Here is the website being alluded to:
http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov/default.aspx
enter Loren Brooks, then click on the Marriage records. You'll see him and Arzalea Compton's marriage on March 7, 1912. Click on the image for a screen that will allow you to view the image...after you download the DiVu plugin. Or, just take the JPEG image of the same thing that I've sent to you. Loren was living in Sprague, WA, age 27, a Mill worker. Arzalea M Compton was 17.

The World War I Draft Registration Card Images shows:
Loren Craig Brooks, living in Sprague, Lincoln Co., Washington, born March 18, 1885. He was a laborer in a warehouse in Sprague. His nearest relative was Mrs Arza Marial Brooks in Sprague. Let me know if you don't have this image and I'll send it to you. He registered as required on September 12, 1918. His eyes were light blue, hair was light.

The 1920 Census for Marysville, Snohomish County, Washington, enumerated 30-31 January.
Loren C. Brooks, age 34, born in Washington to both parents born in Utah, laborer at the railroad, renting on State Street
Arza, wife, 25, born in Oregon to father born in Missouri, mother in Wisconsin
Mildred, daughter, age 7 (1912/1913) born in Canada? (above that is additional words to "possibly" indicate US citizenship certificate)
Walker E, brother ("Probably" brother to Loren), born in Oregon both parents born in Utah.

The 1930 Census for Marysville, Snohomish County, WA
Loren Brooks, age 45, born in Washington to father born in Iowa, mother in Nevada (This has changed dramatically since the 1920). Laborer at Lumber Mill. First married at age 27
Arza, age 35, born in Oregon to father born in Oregon, mother in Wisconsin (again some change). First married at age 18.
Mildred, age 17, born in Canada-then crossed out with Org ? written over it?
Lorene, age 10, born in Washington
Faye, age 8, born in Washington.

The Washington Birth Index shows "Dorris Ona Brooks" born 5 Nov 1914 in Spokane, WA, to Loren Craig Brooks and Arzalia Compton.

Since you only asked for Arzalee Marial's last name, I'll stop at this information. Based on your other posts, you have a He.. of a lot more genealogy ability than the previous help.
