In the early 1890s, a young J. B. Williams went to work in the saddle shop of J. W. Tennyson in Sweetwater, Texas, before purchasing and relocating that saddlery to Gordon, and then to Kerrville, Texas, around 1900. .J B. would combine business with pleasure by riding the old cattle trail from Texas to its end in Abilene, Kansas, and later making saddles for the cattlemen. Worked for R. J. Andrews and Jim Coleman in the Dunn Saddlery at San Angelo, E. T. Amonett of Roswell, NM and R. T. Frazier in Pueblo. Finally settled in Deming, NM around 1918 where he continued, for a quarter of a century, to make high-grade saddles for “cowmen and riders,” shipping them all over the country.
