I'm trying to figure out if Isaac Webb came to Dewitt county as an adult or child. If child, what was his father's name? Where in Kentucky did he come from?

Thank You

Do you know if he could have come from Shelby County, Ky.?
Richard D. Webb moved to Illinois in 1834 from Shelby Co. Ky. I believe some of the family might have moved there also.

Would you happen to have any info about Henry. I'm looking for Henry's parents or county of birth(VA). My goal is to follow direct descendency back as far as I can (Me-Jerry-Kenneth-Ivan-Isaac-Henry). I believe Henry had at least two brothers(Cuthbert, William)

Isaac Newton (not Nelson) Webb b. 21 Sep 1847 d. 3 Dec 1910, born, raised and died in DeWitt Co.,Il. was my gr-grandfather.

Isaac along with your Hiram fought with the 41st Il Vol Inf until it was consolidated with the 53rd Inf. Both lying about their ages to get in.

Margaret Ann (Howard) Webb (m. 1 May 1881) was Isaac's second wife, not one of his siblings. He was the second of Henry and Mary Ann (Lash) Webb's "six" children. Who were dau. Eliza b. 1845,.. son Isaac b.1847,..son Hiram b.1849,...dau Elizabeth C b.1851.,.. dau Frances A. b.1853,...and son John Henry b.1858.

Janet, I don't know of any connection at this time between my Webbs and the Webb families of Dewitt Co., Il. However, It appears to me that your Webbs came from Virginia. Henry and Isaac were poplular Webb names there. At some point back in time we are all connected.

My hunch is that the father of your Henry that married Mary Lash was the older Henry Webb in the 1850 records who was married to Catherine or Katharine.

I see that Katharine was widowed by the 1860 census.

I also suspect that Cuthbert Webb was a brother to your Henry. That is also a name that stands out among Webbs in early Virginia.

The Kentucky Webbs in the records may or may not be connected. The names make me think they were. In many places, Kentucky was just one step from Virginia. That means that you should identify the Webb families that lived near the Kentucky and Virginia border.

The young Henry Webb living with the older Henry and Catherine may be the son of an older deceased son who named his son for his father. Names really give us a lot of clues.

I would also look at all the Isaac Webbs in Virginia about the time that the older Henry was born. I recall that one Isaac Webb was involved in the American Revolution.

Best of luck on the search. If you find anything, come back and post it here to help someone else who may be searching. Also, take note of these other researchers above and try to make contact with them.
