Webster (Webbie) J. Dunaway was born June 17, 1899
and was raised in the Fairland Community in Burnet County.
His parents, Thomas Jefferson and
Cynthia Ann Dunaway, moved to Burnet County between
1881 and 1884 from Polk Co, TX, but were originally from
Pike Co, MS. Uncle Webbie was married to Alma Clark,
but they divorced. They didn't have any children. I believe
he ran the pool hall in Marble Falls. For as long as I can
remember Uncle Webbie lived with his sister, Mabel
(actually Maybell) and Clyde Holland. Uncle
Webbie lived most of his life in Burnet County. He did move
with his brother John to Atascosa County in 1924, but he
only stayed in Atascosa County for a short time. He died
June 12, 1985.
