Thomas Alfred "Bunt" Dulaney

Thomas Alfred Dulaney and his wife, Alice, are pictured on their porch with their granddaughter, Vida Dulaney and her husband, Floyd Wilemon. Thomas Alfred was nicknamed Bunt because of an accident which severed his thumb. His wife was Alice Moxley or Maxey.

The Dulaneys were among the first white settlers to Itawamba County. Bunt's grandfather was John Dulaney who, along with his brothers Alfred and Thomas, moved into Itawamba County just after 1830, buying land ceded by the Chickasaw Indians in 1836. Most, if not all, of the Dulaneys in Itawamba County today are descended from one of these three men.

Thanks to Don Dulaney for sharing the photo with us.
