He died on 10 May 1953 in Plains, Yoakum County, Texas and was buried in May 1953 in Brownfield, Terry County, Texas.

Elma Davis Webb was the second of five children born to Jim Webb and Minta Farnsworth. He was born in Limestone County, Texas on July 12, 1893. Elma was married to Lena Faye McCurdy on September 21, 1923. They had two sons: Elma Woodrow (Woodie) born June 4, 1924 in Haskell County, Texas and Billy Rex born September 15, 1925 in Haskell County. Elma Webb, his wife Lena and their sons, Woodie and Billy Rex were the only members of the Webb family who lived in Yoakum county. They lived just north of the old Lovington Road about one and one-half miles west of Plains (on section 425). Elma Davis Webb died in May 1953. He was preceeded in death by his son Woodrow who died November 25, 1947. Lena Faye opened the first drug store in Denver City in 1936. It was named City Drug and was located on the northeast corner of what is now Main and Second Streets. The Post Office was located in this building and Dr. Lauf had his office there also. The Webbs then had their home moved to Plains. It was located north of the Courthouse near the draw. Lena Faye later had the house moved to Denver City. It became the office for the LaVista Lodge at 1007 North Main which she owned and operated for many years. After Elma and Lena were married and before they moved to Yoakum county they lived at Haskell where their two sons were born. They farmed land which adjoined the land that his brother, Oran and his wife Stella, were farming and their house was north from Oran and Stella's house about a mile. Both brothers had purchased land from their father, Jim Webb.

Elma married Lena Fay MCCURDY on 21 Sep 1923. Lena was born on 4 Nov 1905 in Tarrant County, Texas. She died on 2 Apr 1997 in Kingsland, Llano County, Texas and was buried on 4 Apr 1997 in Lakeland Hills Memorial Park, Travis County, Texas.

In December 1984 Lena wrote: "We moved to Yoakum county in either '31 or '32 - in January and it was a cold and cloudy day. I'll never forget it, from Brownfield to Plains it was a dirt road, so much sand we could hardly get through at times. When we finally got to the farm about night, the house was full of sand and so cold, first thing we did was put up a wood stove and get a fire going. Then a couple of beds. Don't remember what we ate but am sure that it wasn't much. Took the kids to school next morning and then back to cleaning the house and getting the furniture in. The population of Plains was about 300 and there were no paved roads in the county, one telephone in town in the back of the grocery store. No entertainment of any kind, occasionally some rancher would have a dance and we would attend once in a while. This was during the depression. We had enough to eat but no money to spend. Of course everyone was in the same boat so we didn't think much about it, but I was happy when they struck oil in the south part of the county, on section 392 I think, and we moved there in 1940, had the only drug store for some time, had a pharmacy and a liquor store in the back, sold by prescription only. Some people thought it was sinful to sell liquor, but I didn't care. We made a lot of money and the oil field rough necks, and also the big shots bought a lot of it. Anyway I was tired of not having money and doing without. So I just kept on selling whiskey. Elma worked in the Post Office during some of this time. In 1942 the State Legislature passed a law against selling liquor by prescription and so that was the end of that era."

Lena Faye Ballenger, 91, of Kingsland, died April 2, 1997. Funeral services
were held Aril 4, at 10:30 A M at Trinity Episcopal Church with Rev Bob Talbert officiating. Burial followed at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park under the direction of Waldrope-Hatfield-Hawthorne Funeral Home. She was born September 4, 1905 in Tarrant County.

She is survived by her son Billy Rex Webb and wife Geraldine of Austin and sister Geraldine Hancock and husband George of Lovington NM. She was preceded in death by two husbands, Elma Davis Webb in 1953 and Lawrence Ballenger in 1987 and son Woodrow Webb in 1947.

From the Tahoka Avalanche - November 25, 1947. "Elma Woodrow Webb, 23 year old oil field salesman of Tahoka, Texas was killed instantly and Frank Stuart, Jr. 19 was in Tahoka clinic with a possible skull fracture following a head-on collision on the Tahoka-Post highway tonight. The crash occurred nearly two miles east of Tahoka on the Tahoka-Post highway. Sheriff Sam Floyd of Lynn county went to the scene and found that a 1946 model light car driven by Webb, an employee of Hughes Tool Company had been going west toward Tahoka. A 1936 light two-door sedan driven by Stuart had been headed east toward Post. Both men were alone."
        Elma married Margaret Ann WARDLAW.

642. Oran Ewart WEBB (Mary Araminta FARNSWORTH , George Washington , Samuel Hill , Henry , Henry , Thomas , Thomas , Thomas , Thomas ) was born on 26 Aug 1897 in Lockney, Floyd County, Texas. He died on 4 Apr 1948 in Haskell, Haskell County, Texas and was buried on 6 Apr 1948 in Haskell, Haskell County, Texas.

From the Haskell Free Press newspaper April 8,1948."Oran E Webb, 50, prominent Haskell farmer and resident here for thirty years died at the family home six miles east of Haskell on Sunday at 10:15 PM after being stricken with a heart attack. He had been slightly ill for several days but his condition was not believed serious and his death came as a distinct shock to relatives and friends. The deceased was born August 26, 1897 at Lockney in Floyd county Texas and was the son of Mr and Mrs James D Webb. He went to Frio county as a young man and later came to Haskell county in 1918. He married Miss Stella Stewart of Dilley Texas on March 20, 1921 and they made their home in this section since that time. Mr Webb had been a member of the Methodist Church since he was 14 years of age."

There were two children born to their marriage, James Robert Webb, Sr. and Mary Lou Gilleland (formerly Webb). Oran Webb died intestate and there was an administration on his estate made in Haskell County, Texas. At the time of his death (April 1948) he was seized and possessed of certain property which had come to him by inheritance or gift from his family and which was considered separate property and which consisted of a certain interest in real property which was located in Yoakum County, Texas as well as some property located in Haskell County, Texas. Some of the property in the two counties has produced either oil or gas as a result of exploration by various oil companies. Oran was the first of the sons of Jim Webb to marry. He met Stella Stewart in Dilley when his father and Grandfather Farnsworth lived there. He returned later to take her hand. They were married on March 20, 1921 and came to live in Haskell Texas where the Webbs had moved. Jim Webb soon moved out west but Oran and Stella set up housekeeping in Haskell. They also had Elma and Alton living with them at the time. The Dilley Atmosphere, which was the newspaper at Dilley, Texas, published the honor roll for the Dilley schools on November 5, 1913 and it showed Oran Webb at the top of the honor roll for the tenth grade with an average of ninety five.

Oran married Stella Victoria STEWART, daughter of James Robert STEWART and Mary Coral ADAIR, on 20 Mar 1921 in Dilley, Frio County, Texas. Stella was born on 29 Sep 1898 in Buda, Hays County, Texas. She died on 15 May 1990 in Haskell, Haskell County, Texas and was buried on 17 May 1990 in Haskell, Haskell County, Texas.

When Oran and Stella married they went to live in Haskell where the Webbs had moved. Jim Webb soon moved on out west but Elma and Alton stayed in Haskell. Stella remembers that she had to cook for three men and to wash all their clothes. She did her wash on a scrubboard at that time which made it difficult. Once the wash fell down from the clothesline and into the mud and she had to wash it all over again. The men would not wear their khaki work pants unless they were ironed so she had to iron all those clothes plus carry the water from the pump to wash and to cook. She said they were all very good to her but in looking back in later years, she didn't see how she did all that work. Oran died in 1948 and in 1965 Stella married Oscar Tooley and they resided at Haskell. Stella Webb's Pecan Pie Recipe (makes 2 pies):1 cup butter or margarine; 1 tsp allspice; 2 cups sugar; 1 tsp cinnamon; 4 eggs; 1 cup raisins; 1 tsp nutmeg; 1 cup pecans (chopped); 2 tablespoons vinegar. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time mixing after each addition. Add spices, raisins, pecans and vinegar. Pour into unbaked pie shells and bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) until done (about 50 to 55 minutes).

+ 966 M i James Robert WEBB Sr
+ 967 F ii Mary Lou WEBB
