Hi I live in Virginia and recently purchased a chest of drawers made by William Daffron and it is stamped Richmond, Virginia. This chest was made around oh 18401850 or so. If any of you have any information on this man, it would be greatly appreciated. I was able to find out that he had a shop on Main St. in Richmond and that his furniture was popular in Atlanta< Georgia. I have spoken with a relative who said it was his great great great grandfather but he didn't knowmuch about the furniture part but he had heard stories saying that is what his grandfather did. I hope someone has some information. This chest is beautiful.
