Birth: Oct. 24, 1885

Texas, USA
Death: May 28, 1972

Louella McFarland Bain was the the daughter of Amos Washington McFarland/McFarlin and Louvina "Vina" Lowe McFarland/McFarlin.

She was the wife of William Elihue Bain, the couple were the parent's of four children.

During the 1960's, Louella hosted the McFarland/McFarlin Family reunion, in a park across from her home in Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas. It was always held in the summer, and it was very hot, but the reunion brought the McFarland's from all over the country, at the time Aunt Lou, as she was known, was the McFarland Family matriarch.

The reunion was very festive, where stories were told about the family, family history was recorded, and friendship's were renewed.

Louella grand-parent's were Mathew M. McFarland and Mary Dick McFarland. Louella's father was born in Simpson County, Kentucky.

Note: This particular McFarland family spelled the surname as McFarlin or McFarland, it seemed to be a matter of choice as to the spelling.
