1880 census Leon Co, TX - I know last name doesn't look like yours, but you can't fault the indexer, I looked at original handwritten record and it really isn't clear. But "Bunke" and Webb are in the family, and you can see where Bunk named a son Clifton, probably for this brother.

With maiden name of mother I went to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- Typed in McKandles, spouse Reeder and someone is working on the line. They've taken Reeder back some more. They only show the one daughter "Zeda" contact them share what you know and get source of the McKandles and Reeder marriage etc.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
