Here's much more about him (James E. Webb):

I wish I knew more about the reasons or more about him as a person. Can't find his grave up in Illinois (I visited the cemetery I think he's in once), but we had looked for him for a couple of decades before finding him up there. Apparently no kin up there, he must have just moved to get away from the folks back in Itawamba Co., MS and Lamar Co., AL. He had at least a couple of brothers and brother in laws that fought for the CSA and at least one that didn't participate at all. He's the only one in the family that fought for the north.
