  • In the university of life, some courses are required of us.  Some we may choose, but others are required.

    Life itself is a required course in which we have no say. We did not choose to be born, but now that we are here, we can do nothing about it. We have to live. There is no escaping. You cannot destroy yourself. Life does not end at death. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 proves this. You had a beginning, but there is no ending. You must exist somewhere from now on.

  • E.S. Ferrill shared this information about his grandfather, William Ferrill. (The story was found on a genealogical website.)

    William Ferrill came to LaRue County (then Kentucky County, Virginia), from Culpepper, Va., in 1788. He came when a very small child with his mother, a young widow.

    His mother’s brothers, John and James Howell, accompanied them on horseback.

  • In LaRue County’s history, there have been few entrepreneurs to match Edward Stanton Ferrill.

    Ferrill, the grandfather of Linda Back of Hodgenville, turned a small drugstore in Buffalo into a booming wholesale business during a time when almost every other business was struggling or going belly-up.

    The secret to his success? He never went into a new venture until he had the cash saved to start it.

    “E.S.” as he was known, was born Feb. 19, 1862, to Henry and Mary Jane Ray Ferrill. He was raised on a farm on the Rolling Fork River.
