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).

Stella married (1) Oran Ewart WEBB, son of James Davis WEBB and Mary Araminta FARNSWORTH, on 20 Mar 1921 in Dilley, Frio County, Texas. Oran 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.

In March 1990 Cleo wrote: "The Stewarts came from McNairy county Tennessee. My grandfather was William Shepard Stewart, married Susan Springer. I don't know when most of them came to Texas, but I think that my father was about 21 years old. Anyhow, Shepard Stewart had a sister, Malissa, who had a son, Taylor Goforth. Don't have the details but most of the family settled in a community named Goforth out from Buda in Hays county Texas. Incidentally, my father, at one time worked for Taylor Goforth who had a truck line (wagons & mules). Daddy loaded up at Goforth in the morning, drove to Austin, unloaded his wares, spent the night at a wagon yard on South Congress Ave., loaded up and back to Goforth. Some of Taylor Goforth's family moved to this area. A granddaughter married a Bell boy and lived way out from Dilley. It was she who hosted a Goforth-Stewart reunion (bar-b-que) at her home sometime between 1936-38. There were four Stewart brothers who came to Dilley around 1906 - Ira, Henry, Robert and Frank. Ira died in 1912; the others had rather long lives. The five elderly people in the front row of the photograph were Uncle Henry, my father, Aunt Sarah (sister) and Uncle Frank Smith of Buda and Uncle Frank Stewart. The boy by Uncle Henry is Roy Newman Jr. (Ira's grandson). By Uncle Frank were Dotsy Newman, Linda Gill. The tall dark haired boy at left on second row was W R Weathersby. Behind Daddy was Tate, Lex's first wife. Behind Lex was Dee Stewart. I don't think that May or Stella were there."
