Biography: J. L. FARRINGTON J. L. Farrington, the son of an Irish emigrant, left his home at the age of sixteen to enlist in Company B. One Hundred and Twenty sixth Illinois Infantry. There he served as a good soldier, taking part in all the battles and sieges in which his regiment was engaged. The hours of danger, the days of weary march, the longing for home, the association of comrades, the sharing of dangers, the fiery ordeal and trial of war, all prepared him for the stern duties that were his in later years. After the close of the war, Comrade Farrington resided at Iowa Falls and was a member of Post No. 141 of the Grand Army of the Republic. For fifty years after the war he taught lessons of patriotism and loyalty. From victories in war, he sought victories in peace, and labored for the best interests of his comrades. At the Forty third Annual Encampment, held at Davenport in June, 1917, Comrade Farrington was elected Department Commander. He lived to attain the age of eighty one, and died at his summer home in Wisconsin, on July 17, 1928. Source: The Iowa Department of the Grand Army of the Republic page 139
