Notes for Andrew Jackson Farrell:
The "old house" was originally a typical Southern Plantation with many outbuildings and slave quarters. It was sold to Mr. John Harold Kellum by the heirs of the estate for $8,000.00.

Long ago there was a house in the rear of the plantanion home where Alice Permelia (Farrell) Kellum resided. The slave quaters were torn down by Johh Harold Kellum and in the grounds of front yard area Native American dances were help at one time. Of the several outbuildings the tobacco barn still stood although the cotton barn was gone. John said it was an usafe building due to age. Before John's passing in 2010 he was the cartaker of the Red Hill Cemetery.

The above was told by Mr John Harold Kellum at his home in Guntown on a Sunday social to two brothers Daniel and David, grandsons of Eupha Nell Furgerson Thurman the grandaughter of James Taylor Farrell

Mr. Andrew Jackson's granddaughter Mary Bessie Kellum was a school teacher. She never married and wrote to Eupha Nell (Furgerson) Thurman in Black Canyon City, AZ in approximately 1972 regarding family tree. Mary was 80 years old.

Andrew Jackson Farrell's funeral service was held by M.H. Armor who wrote his obituary in THE CHRISTIAN MESSENGER newspaper. The paper states that Brother Farrell obeyed the gospel, having attended a service by Brother R. B. Trimbel who preached the first sermon Andrew had ever heard delivered by a "Christian only." He remained faithful until his death. His wife and all the children except one, became Christians. Andrew J. Farrell was a good soldier of Jesus. Quiet, modest, unpretentious, but true and unwavering in all of his life's relationships.
The body was taken to Red Hill Cemetery a few miles east of Guntown, and laid to rest.
