Short Name: F. L. Eiland
Full Name: Eiland, F. L (Franklin Lycurgus)
Birth Year: 1860
Death Year: 1909

Franklin L. Eiland was born in Noxubee county, Miss., March 25, 1860. He was reared on the farm and attended the old field school. The
school house on the hill and the old Oaken Bucket, etc., etc., were objects of interest in his curriculum. He had traveled some before finally leaving home including a trip to Tx, but in 1882 he came to Tx to remain. November 13, 1884 he married Miss Mary E. Nisbett of Robertson county. She lived nine years. In 1894 he married Miss Ella May Kennedy of Van Zandt county. She lived only 10 days. October 21, 1896 he married Miss Minnie Jarushia Valentine of McLennan county. She still survives. They have one sweet little daughter, Mary Ella Oree. She is quite bright and is already starting music at the age of three. Little Elva Lynn came Sept. 16, 1901 and God took her
Aug. 9, 1902. The Eilands have been farmers and professional men along many lines, but Prof. Eiland was the only one that ever embarked in the music business. He was inclined to music from a child and appropriated all the advantages in this line that came his way. Many things of minor importance happened along his life but in 1884 he fell into a meeting conducted by Maj. W. E. Penn, and the superior music rendered there awaked all his latent talent and set him on fire with a desire to make a musician. He at once began a musical career that has attained an abundant success. He soon began teaching and continuing to study to became a composer. He sought the association of those who could teach him and in this and other ways has enjoyed advantages of the best talent to be found. In 1893 he began publishing. From this, came in due time The Trio Music Co. now operated in Waco. Prof. E. is president of the company and editor in chief of the journal. He moved later to Myrtle Springs to secure the benefit of the wonderful waters of those springs. He is given great credit for good influence wielded for his church and community.
