In looking for records of the rock wall that bordered the old Floresville School and that was recently removed for the most part, I was given some copies by historian Maurine Liles from the Floresville Chronicle-Journal. They contain some history of the Floresville schools (nothing about the wall), but on the same page is a letter sent to Mr. Sam Fore Jr. in 1960 by a Mildred Burrows Garret. Apparently Mr. Fore had asked her for a “story” for his paper. It does not mention what kind of story he was wanting. What she sent him were excerpts of interviews she had done of the early settlers of the county. She stated that back in the 1930s she had interviewed many pioneers of Wilson County. She mentioned several people: C.B. Stevenson, Mrs. John McDaniel, Belger Baylor, Vicente Carvajal, Guy Cone, Jacob Cruz, and Bruno Villarreal. Those were all that were on this one page. There were probably many others. The one that caught my attention was Bruno Villarreal. . . .
