Mr. T. J. Dunaway is Dead

 

Friends of Mr. Dunaway were shocked last Friday morning when they were appraised of his death. He had been in ill health for some time, suffering from dropsy, but no one had any idea the end was so near.

Mr. Dunaway was a native of Mississippi. He was born June 29, 1854. He was 70 years, 3 months and four days of age. Mrs. Dunaway was called hence by death July 15th of this year. Mr. Dunaway had been a citizen of Texas 47 years. He came in an early day and helped to pave the way for civiliztion. He had been a resident of Fairland community where he died for about 30 years. No better man ever lived in that part of the county. During all of these years he has lived on the farm.

Mr. Dunaway is survived by two brothers, one of whom, J. R., lives in Llano and the other in Mississippi. He is also survived by eight children, as follows: J. E. Dunaway, Mrs. Berry Haywood, Fairland; Mrs. Claud Crow, Elgin; Mrs. Clyde Holland, Mormon Mill; Miss Vickie, C. J., Webbie, and Dockie, Fairland. The children were all here to attend the funeral.

Deceased was a devout Christian and a faithful consistent member of the Baptist Church. He also was a member of the Masonic faternith and was buried with Masonic honors by the Marble Falls lodge.

Mr. Dunaway possessed all of the qualities of a real man and citizen. No finer type of southern gentleman ever lived in this section. he was honest, honorable, upright and square with his fellowmen, loyal to his family and true to his God.

The funeral was conducted at the Fairland cemetery Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock. Rev. C. R. Goodman conducted the service. Many were present to pay their last respects to their friend and neighbor.
