      See: The Heritage of Caswell County, North Carolina, Jeannine D. Whitlow, Editor (1985) at 192-193 ("Samuel Ellis and Ada Eldridge Farmer Family" by S. Ryland Farmer), from which the following excerpt was taken:

      The family lived in Maryland for twenty years before moving to Yanceyville, North Carolina, and purchasing Caswell Motor Company, Inc. Ryland Farmer was coordinator for the County Commissioners for the Country Line Creek Watershed Project, which took thirteen years to complete. The lake contains 400 acres of water, providing the county with 10 million gallons of water daily. Ryland Farmer was honored by the Caswell County Commissioners by naming the lake S. R. Farmer Lake.
