754. John WEBB (Charles , Isaac , Giles , John William , Giles , William Micajah , Alexander , Alexander , Henry Alexander , John Alexander , John Alexander , William , John , Geofrey , Henry ) was born in 1797 in Washington County, Georgia. He died on 16 Dec 1862 in Butler County, Alabama and was buried in 1862 in Butler County, Alabama.

John Webb was born in Washington County, Georgia about 1797. He married Sarah A L Renfroe in 1828. The 1850 census shows a woman named Lydia Chivers, age 82, living with John and Sarah. We do not know how she may be related to the family. John and Sarah Webb had seven children. The first three were born in Washington County, Georgia, the fourth is listed as being born in Alabama in 1836 and the last three were born in Muscogee County, Georgia. And then something happened to cause John Webb to leave his first family, move to Alabama and marry another person with whom he had three sons. In the family there is a small pistol, ca 1835. It has never been fired. The story is that John Webb purchased the pistol to shoot someone, but rather than commit murder, he moved away. Although the pistol was passed down to the first born son by his second wife, the story itself remains a mystery. We do not know why he needed to consider committing murder. Since the family was otherwise highly esteemed, honest and respectable, it is possible that John Webb was so traumatized by the occurence, he didn't want to talk about it. He married Apalany Kennedy Chandler sometime between 1850 and 1854, probably 1852 or 1853. She had been married before and brought her four children by her first husband to the marriage with John Webb. John and Apalany had three sons, the lastborn being the grandfather of James Robert Webb. James Davis Webb, the lastborn son was only sixteen months old when his father died, so he never really knew him. This may be the reason that so little is known in James Davis' family about his parents, especially his father. When John died, he left a will which Apalany probated. The document specifically lists only his children by Apalany as his heirs (in the event of her death). Three of the children of the first marriage are listed by Apalany in the probate papers. This enabled us to locate the family in the 1850 and 1860 census. We assume that Apalany knew only the names of the three older children, therefore did not list all the others in the document.

John and Apalany purchased land in Butler County, Alabama where they engaged in farming. The land was near the present town of Rutledge, Alabama, which became a part of Crenshaw County in 1867, but was in Butler County at the time that John was alive. In 1860, Apalany's oldest daughter, Sarah Jane Chandler, was married in a wedding ceremony "at Mr. John Webb's", according to the marriage certificate. The groom was the son of a neighbor, John J Combs. The 1860 census shows the two families living close to each other. Sarah's husband enlisted in the Alabama Volunteers but evidently died of sickness instead of being killed in battle. The 1870 census shows Sarah living with Apalany, both now widowed, and each with a nine-year-old child. Sarah has a daughter, Sarah, age nine, and Apalany has a son, James Davis, age nine. After John's death, Apalany continued to live on their property. She paid the taxes, but we can imagine that life was hard since this was the time of the Civil War. Descendants of John Risby Webb say that the Union soldiers stole Apalany's horses and cattle among other things.

More of the Chandler daughters married: Louisa married Thomas Ganey, son of another neighbor family who later migrated to Texas and lived in Limestone County near the rest of the Webb family when they, too, migrated to Texas. Martha Ann married W D Frazier who served in the Alabama Volunteers, Company A, Hillard's Legion, an artillery battalion. They also migrated to Limestone County as did William Chandler, Apalany's youngest by her first husband.
William married Lenore, maiden name not known. All of these Chandler children are buried in Limestone County along with their spouses and children.

About 1871, Apalany migrated to Texas, leaving a power of attorney authorizing William R Houghton to act in her behalf in the sale of the Alabama property. Some of this Webb land was sold to the Swanner family whose descendants still own it. In Limestone County, Texas, the three sons born to John and Apalany grew up and married. John Risby married Ada Askew. They had eleven children, seven of whom survived, and they remained in the area where John Risby owned a store and also farmed. He was said to be a good swimmer and a generous man. He never refused credit to a family who needed food and many of these credit accounts were never paid. He was left-handed. The esteem that he felt for his mother was shown as he named his first daughter Apalany. She died at the age of six days. He tried to get his sons' wives to name their daughters Apalany but to no avail. They didn't consider it to be a very attractive name. John Risby died at the age of 86 years. Evans Rutherford Webb married Carrie M Thompson and moved to the Panhandle area of Texas. They raised six children some of whom worked as mechanics in auto garages according to the 1910 census. James Davis "Jim" Webb married Mary Araminta Farnsworth in Limestone County on January 14, 1890. Her father, G W Farnsworth was a good friend of Jim's and they bought and sold land together on several occasions. Jim was ten years older than Minta. They soon moved to the Panhandle area where they lived in Floyd County, Texas. They also lived in Frio County, Texas for a while and then moved to Yoakum County. Wherever they lived, Jim bought parcels of land and sold them. Minta also bought some land in her name. They had five children, four of whom lived to adulthood. Jim lived to be 83 years old.

We believe that Charles WEBB, b. 27 April 1756 in Richmond Virginia, is the father of John WEBB, great grandfather of James Robert WEBB, Sr. There is no recorded proof of this but we have come to this conclusion through a PREPONDERANCE OF EVIDENCE. Our John WEBB was born in Washington County, Georgia in 1797, according to the 1850 and 1860 census records. The Washington County, Georgia courthouse burned twice - once in 1855 and once in 1864 during the Civil War. This means that many records were forever lost. In 1995, we traveled to the county to view the remaining records. We also visited with Mrs. Wiles of the Washington County Historical Society, and we studied material at the Sandersville Library. There is a family of WEBBs who moved to Washington County, Georgia. They are descendants of the WEBB family from England and they descend from Richard WEBB who came, along with his four brothers, to America about 1629. Marriage and birth records of this family survive down to Isaac WEBB and his wife, Frances Barber WEBB, and show that Isaac had a son, Charles WEBB, born 27 April 1756. Some of the sons of Isaac, including John and Giles, came to Washington County, Georgia. Several documents for John and Giles remain to show this. We find that our John WEBB was not a child of either John or Giles WEBB. In the 1820 Washington County census there is a Charles WEBB listed. He is probably the male in the household who is listed in the "45 and over" age category. In his household is one male listed as age "16-26". Our John WEBB would have been 23 years old at that time and not married, yet. By 1830, our John WEBB had married his first wife, Sarah, and we find him in Washington County's 1830 census with a female age "20-30" (this would fit Sarah, born about 1807) and a male age "30-40" (John would have been 33). There is no Charles WEBB in this 1830 census. Charles, born 1756, would have been 74 years old by then and most probably was deceased. John WEBB had two sons that we know of by his first wife...Enoch and James Ross. Both of them married but only James had any children. James named his first son, Charles. And the name Charles continues in the descendants of that family. We have searched census and other records to find the ancestry of John WEBB. We found nothing to indicate there is any other father than this Charles WEBB. Likewise, there is not another family for this Charles WEBB to negate his being John's father. Therefore, from our research and work, we believe that Charles WEBB, son of Isaac WEBB, grandson of Giles WEBB and Elizabeth Spann WEBB, is the father of John WEBB, ancestor of James Robert WEBB, Sr.
