The story from boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=message&r=rw&p=topics.heraldry&m=775:
"The town of Capron has never had a flag, logo or seal. The town council is now looking for someone to design a crest. Founded in 1888 in rural Virginia, Capron remains today much as it has since it became a town. [Previously Capron was called the Princeton Territory]. This is a tiny community of farmers. Farming is not only a way of life, but it has been handed down through the generations and the same families struggle to feed the nation. Population of about 140 people, we are a proud community. We have no grocery store, no restaurant or doctor. There is no hotel or movie house. We have the feed store [also built in 1888] a gas station, small post office and 3 churches.
If interested in helping us to create our town crest, please contact Maureen before May 10, 2004."
