In 1900, James M. Virdell, made water well drilling his profession.  He purchased the first drilling machine in the little community of Kingsland, Texas.  J.C. Virdell was born that same year and grew up in the well drilling business.  James Taylor Virdell began his own drilling business in 1946, after serving in the Air Force for three years.  In 1978, James Taylor Virdell Jr. became the fourth generation to locate, drill, and develop ground water in this area.
