Birth: Nov. 7, 1823
Death: Jan. 15, 1917
Lebanon
Collin County
Texas, USA

Foster Dunaway came to Texas around 1846 and settled in Dallas. He ran the first drug store in Dallas. He later moved to Lebanon and opened a drug store. The store eventually became a general store. It was the third store in Lebanon. Because of the difficulty of getting supplies during the Civil War, the store was closed. The Dunaways continued to live in the area.


I found this short piece written about Foster and his brother Jefferson Madison Dunaway (who was my 3rd Great Grandfather)

Early Methodism in Dallas County, by Rev. WH ("Uncle Buck") Hughes

These have many descendants living, but all of these old pioneers are dead, save perhaps, Foster and Jefferson Dunaway, one of whom lives in Collin County, and the other in Ellis County. They are gone, but they have indelibly left their impress in this county.
"I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread. The prosperity of this community, and of the descendants of those I've name, speaks well of the godliness of their ancestry.
