From A HISTORY OF TEXAS AND TEXANS
Cornelius M. Hearn, who was born in Alabama, December 24, 1854, grew up at College Mound, and attended school there. - His elementary schooling had been received in his native state. When he married he settled on rented land and lived there two years, and then moved to the locality three miles north of Mabank, where he bought land and made a farm. When he had gained some independence and much experience he became a stock trader, a dealer, and eventually a shipper. At the same time he conducted farming on a large scale, put two hundred and fifty acres under the plow, and ultimately became owner of many more acres. He continued actively with the farm until 1898, when he engaged in the gin business and moved to "Old Lawndale," from which locality he moved to Mabank, in 1900. At Mabank he erected a gin of four stands, seventy saws, having since improved it to a six-stand eighty-saw plant. To the ginning operations he now devotes most of his time. Mr. Hearn has shown his faith and loyalty to his community at Mabank, in the erection of a fine two-story residence, the finest home in the town. An immense barn stands near, and both buildings suggest the substantial character of their owner. Mr. Hearn also assisted in organizing the First National Bank of Mabank.
In politics he is a voter with the Texas Democracy, and belongs to the Baptist church. Fraternally he has been master of his Masonic Lodge at Mabank and belongs to the Knights of Pythias, but takes only moderate interest in fraternal affairs.
On June 2, 1877, Mr. Hearn married Miss Agnes Aly, a daughter of John Aly. Her father came to Texas from Tennessee and was twice married. Mrs. Hearn was reared in the home of relatives. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Hearn are Dr. Robert E., of Mabank, who graduated in medicine at Louisville, Kentucky; Amy, wife of E. E. Trea'dwell of Mabank, and has one son, Lawrence W.; Fannie, Neelie and Helen live at home.
