The Farrells are from Georgia. They came to North Louisiana in an early day. James C. Farrell was born and reared in that State, and came to Van Zandt County in 1869. Here he met Miss Elenora Moore, from Tennessee. Her father came in an early day, and she was reared here. They were married in 1870. Cornelius was born November 22, 1873, near the present village of Jackson, in this county. His father was a farmer and ginner, and so the boy was reared under these conditions. He went to the country school and later finished in the Myrtle Springs High School. After the attainment of manhood he chose medicine as a profession. S. A. Mayfield is a prominent farmer in the Jackson community, and his daughter, Miss Etta, and Dr. Farrell had been children together, and when they reached proper age, were married June 16, 1895. They now have two children Stella and Gladys. Dr. Farrell is now one of the popular and respected physicians in the Myrtle Springs section. He has read medicine for years, but only two years since began lectures and later the practice. The doctor is of one of the old and respected families in the county, and is practicing among his own kindred and friends. He has a large and growing practice, and will take another course this winter in the medical department of Baylor University, in Dallas. He is well situated and has a bright future, and is a worthy representative of his section. He thinks this section is great, and any man can make a living here that can do so anywhere. The land is rich and varied and cheap. The climate is good and resources most excellent. Farming and fruit raising, truck growing and stock predominate
