Extracted from: Heminway's VERMONT HISTORICAL GAZETEER, VOL I.
"The first attempt to settle this town (Charlotte, Vt.), was made by Derick Webb. He first began in March, 1776, but soon left. He came in March, 1777, but left in May following. No permanent settlement was made til 1784, when Derick Webb and Elijah Woolcot moved in and were followed by others." (footnote-from article, Charlotte, signed by J.T. and I.W. -- probably James Towner and Issac Webb, -- in Thompson's Gazeteer 1824).
Webb was a German. There is a family tradition that during one of Webb's temporary residences here during the Revolution, he took his children out to what is now Hill's Bay to see the Lake. A party of Indians came around a point and took them prisoners. At Webb's earnest entreaty however they set the children ashore, took him to Canada, where he was detained three or four months. About the same time, when Mrs. Webb was left alone, the Indians visited her log cabin, removed her from the house, ripped open her feather bed and scattered the contents, and were about to set the house on fire. She entreated them not to burn her house and leave her shelterless, as she was already left alone. They replied they must set the house on fire, according to their orders, but would then leave, and she might put it out if she could. So they did, and retired, and she extinguished the fire. It is most likely the settlement of Webb was commenced in the west part of the town, near the settlement of the Piersons in Shelburne, where Col. Thomas Sawyer made his gallant and victorious fight. It was not until many years afterwards that he,(Webb), settled on the farm near the Railroad Station, where it is generally supposed he began his first settlement. There is a slight claim that James Hill was the first settler in town. His wife, a daughter of Gov. Thos. Chittenden, is said to have often declared that, " she was for three months the handsomest woman in town, for the very good reason that she was the only one." It is very probable that Hill and several others, as Dr. James Towner, Jno. Hill, Solomon Squier, Moses Fall, and Daniel Hosford, moved into town in 1784, the same year as Webb and Woolcot came; several of them were certainly here in 1785.
Extract same article, - The settlement progressed so that the town was organized March 13, 1787, and when the first complete census of the state was taken in 1791, contained 635 inhabitants - the most populous town not only in Chittenden county, but also in the north half of the state now embraced in the 8 northern counties.

James was a justice of the peace of Essex County, Virginia and a signer of the Association of the Northern Neck in opposition to the Stamp Act, February 27, 1766. He appears to have had an interest in several grist mills on Piscataway Creek, near Tappahannock, Essex County, Virginia. James began construction of a home called "Mount Prospect" on a hill overlooking Piscataway Creek. This place was about "100 yards from the road leading from Tappahannock to Urbanna in Middlesex County, five miles from the former place, about one fourth of a mile from Piscataway Creek, and three miles from Rappahannock River, with a beautiful view of the winding of the Creek to where it entered the river with a view of the river for five miles. Yet with all its beauty it was considerd very sickly. Several of the family members are buried in the family cemetery which is on the place".

"Mark Howard, the ancestor of this family, was born in North Carolina, where he married miss Rachel Webb, oldest child of William Webb and Frances Young. While yet young he left North Carolina to seek a new home in Kentucky, taking with him his faithful servent "Squire", who was a pure African (both his father and mother having been kidnapped in Africa, and brought to North Carolina). They walked the entire way to Kentucky and after selecting land for a home, walked back to North Carolina". "At the time he emigrated to Kentucky, He had six children. After they moved to Kentucky, eight more were born, making a total of fourteen children. They settled on Green River, in what was then Ohio County, but later became Daviess County". "He was a staunch baptist, and joined the Beaver Dam Church. All his children lived to adult age and were married, and with a single exception lived within a five or six mile radius of Greenbriar Church, which Mr. Howard joined in 1820. All of them are now dead except Mrs. Hannah Johnson, who is 94 or 95 years old and Samuel and John Howard who live at Sivia, McLean County".
