The Family History of Robert Marvin Dunn
My name is Garrey C. Dunn, Jr. and this is the Family History page for my paternal grandfather (my father's father). His name was Robert Marvin Dunn.
This photo was taken at my parent's wedding in 1957.
Robert was born on the Fitzhugh Ranch in Bosque County, Texas in 1902, the fourth of nine children (seven of which lived to be adults). Some time between his birth and 1908, his family moved to Lueders, Texas. They returned around 1910 (1). He married Jeraline Boiles on his 19th birthday in 1921. They had four children (my father being the youngest). When my father was born, they were sharecroppers in Whitney, Texas. After that, Robert got a job with the United States Corps of Engineers (2) and they moved several places across Texas. After retiring, Robert and Jeraline lived on a small farm outside of Glen Rose, Texas for several years before returning to Whitney, where they lived out their final years.
