James Monroe Farley married Miss Loretta Fry on 10 June 1854 at Giles County, Tennessee.
Mrs. Loretta Farley filed for her dead husband's Confederate Pension on 20 January 1915 at Young County, Texas. The pension was approved 1 March 1915. She was 76 years old on the pension and was born in Tennessee. She moved to Texas in 1892. She had been living near Olney, Texas since 1910. Her husband was drawing a pension at the time of his death. She states that he died 18 December 1914 at Jean, Texas. Evidently, she was illiterate since she signed with her mark "X" and the signature was filled in. The Young County Judge, W.P. Stinson signed his name on 20 January 1915. Witnesses were Charles N. Keen and W.F. Thompson. The Commissioner of Pensions sent a letter to Mrs. J.M. Farley of Farmer, Texas to show her application had been approved.
On 27 August 1921, Loretta Farley's daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Beaver filed an application stating that her mother was dead. On the application, J.C. Beaver states that Mrs. Loretta Farley died on 7 June 1921 at Baylor County, Texas. He states that he is the son-in-law and that she made her home with his family. The affidavit is signed by Baylor County Judge Noble Mitchell. G.H. Gray, undertaker at Seymour, signed that he prepared her body for burial. J.F. Bunkley signed that he was the attending physician and Loretta Farley died of natural causes from old age.
