J.A. Varnon & Son Blacksmith

(Borrowed from my cousin, Rob Richardson)
This is the birthplace of my mother and grandfather. Many of the Reed, Richardson, and King relatives were born and still live there, though it’s proximity to San Antonio has contributed to a big boost in population. The family history revolves around this little farming community.
Thriving business in Floresville TX circa 1907. I believe those are telegraph poles in the background. It looks like the sign was pretty new, has a different shade than the building, which does not look new.

Meagain… great write up… this one is awesome to study.. lots of interesting family history… i agree with you.. the sign does look new and the building much older…. this one is a real treasure..

  1. J.A. Varnon and his son, Harvey, are my great-grandfather and grandfather. Could I possibly get a copy of this wonderful picture? I live in New Braunfels, Texas.
