Thomas and Emaline Varco
Thomas Varco, one of the earliest settlers, was born in England and moved at an early date to Canada where he married Emaline Eddy, who was born in Coberg, Ontario and is still living at the good old age of 84.

The family moved to Wisconsin, there remained six years, and then came to Austin arriving July 24, 1856. A daughter, Mrs. Amy Hart, now living in Austin, well remembers this long and tedious trip to Austin by ox cart.
