Surnames: Webb
I have just begun research on Webb ancestors so don't have much information at this time. The ancestor I am researching is Mary Webb, born in Robertson Co. She married John W. Swan in 1860. I am trying to find her parents and/or siblings. The 1820 Census lists a Samuel Webb in Robertson Co., with a different make-up of a family.... 1 male 16-25, 9 males 45+, and 1 female 16-26. There is also a Smith Webb listed in the same Census with...2 males 0-10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 45+; 1 female 0-10, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 26-45, 1 female 45+, 2 slaves. Perhaps one of these is the family you are researching. Also in the Robertson Co., marriage records the following names are listed: John Webb m. Amanda ERWIN 1853; Joseph WEBB m. Madera JONES,1858; John WEBB m. Cornelia TERRILL,1862; Samuel WEBB m. Ellen BRIGGS, 1865; John WEBB m. Mollie SAMUEL, 1873. I don't know the location of the Webb Cemetery. I hope this information helps.

Wendell,
My ggrandmother was Myrtle Forrest Reeder b. 4-12-1880 in Robertson Co., TN and d. 4-28-1959 in Lebanon, St. Clair Co., IL.(She married John Archie Wilson, son of Elisha Wilson Jr. and Margaret Caroline Jones.) Her parents were Benjamin Reeder b. 1-31-1850 and d. 4-9-1920 and Mary Jane Dorris b. 3-16-1850 and d. 12-19-1928. Mary Jane is the daughter of Joseph A. Dorris and Virginia Roe. Benjamin is the son of Jonathan Reeder and Elizabeth Brumbelow. I believe Jonathan Reeders father was named Isaac, and I know that Jonathan had a brother named Claiborne/Claibourne who married Sarah Brumbelow (Elizabeth's sister) Do you know anything about the Reeder's. I don't know anything about bros or sisters of Benjamin and would love more info on Jonathan and parents.

Joseph A. Dorris is also my Great Grandfather. His second wife was Priscilla C. Powell who was born about 1835. They were married before 1855. My grandmother was Viola Dorris who married Joseph Addison Williams. She was one of the younger children whose mother was Priscilla Powell. Thanks for this new link. Isaac Dorris who married Susannah Barker was the son of William Dorris (b abt 1705 m before 1725) in County Down, Ireland. Thanks for the help. I have Reeder connections in Greenbrier, Tennessee - Robertson County. Are you connected with this group of Reeders. Know Jenny Reeder Hackney and Evelyn Reeder Crawford.

Sherri,
Thanks for your response and the information. In the research of your Dorris ancestors have you come across ELENDER "ELlen" DORRIS? She was born 9-20-1833 and married PRESTON HONEYCUTT in 1859 in Robertson, Co. She died 7-20-1906 in Sumner Co., and is buried in Beech Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Hendersonville, TN. I do not know her place of birth, parents or siblings. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
Nancy
