I had an oral history yesterday in Farmersville, which – incase you didn’t know – is north of McKinney and one of two north Texas towns that claim Audie Murphy.
During the interview, the interviewee asked me if I knew why Farmersville was called “Farmersville”.
Assuming it would sound rudely sarcastic to blurt out, “Because there are a lot of farmers in the area”. I opted for the much more innocent, “No, why?”
The answer: “Because there are a lot of farmers in the area.”
