James Eiland was born in Georgia and reared to the age of 12 when the family moved to Alabama. Here he was reared to manhood, was educated in the Alabama schools and became a teacher. In due time he married Miss Sarah Ann Savage. Ten children were born unto them.

The census information for James and Sarah for 1850, 60, 70 & 80 has some conflicting information.

Moved from Mississippi, Noxubee County, to Robertson County, Texas in about 1878. They lived in the rural aras of Wootan Wells and Beck's Prairie, between Bremond and Franklin, Texas. J. W. Massey may have built the Wootan Wells Hotel, a local hot springs resort that was outside of Bremond, Texas. This information is from, Living Gospel Songs, an F. L. Eiland Memorial.
