    My parents told me the Furr and Hare trading post was the early predecessor of Furr cafeterias and Hare hardware. You gotta love the doctor's name.

    My Grandfather Walter Lee Holley is on the top row 3rd from the left, my great grandfather Holley, Larry Allen Holley is center bottom. They helped settle the town of Swearingen. Grandpa Walter was a station agent at Swearingen.
