In Reply to: William K. Masten--1860s by James E. Williams of 1986

There was a Masten Blvd that was a side street to the 1888 Cumberland Hill School site; a school established by Presbyterians. The Cumberland School still stands but was purchased by former Gov. Bill Clements in 1976.

Check out Dallas History by Jim Wheat on the Rootsweb "FREEPAGES". (GO to Freepages link, and click letter "D" and you should find Dallar County Archives by Jim Wheat the first selection!) He has some excellent bios of early Dallas businessmen, newspaper clippings and social tidbits.

There may some information about him in the re-published 1936 Centennial of Dallas by North Texas Press. It sold for $22.95 at one of the better local bookstores. It was reprinted in 1986 on the 150 year anniversary.
