Martin WEBSTER b. circa 1750; r. Hebron, CT, 1790

I have searched the web--up one side and down the other--unsuccessfully, for any mention of this prolific WEBSTER, who was enumerated in the 1790 Federal Census, in Hebron, Tolland County, CT, with a wife (presumably). a son, and four daughters. No Martin WEBSTER was enumerated in the 1800 Federal Census in any state, nor was there an obvious widow enumerated in Hebron, CT, in 1800.

There is no mention of a Martin WEBSTER in the authoritative "History and Genealogy of the Governor John WEBSTER Family of Connecticut", nor is there any mention of this family in the BARBOUR Index.

He apparently belonged to the First Congregational Church of Hebron, CT, the records of which--at least up to 1787--were burned. There were other early WEBSTER families in Hebron, CT, but they belonged to the Gilead Congreational Church. These are the WEBSTERS who are included in the aforementioned WEBSTER Genealogy and in the BARBOUR Index.

What became of this Martin WEBSTER? Who was his wife? Who were his children? Are there any Hebron, CT land, cemetery, or probate records that would shed some light on this matter? Could Ruby WEBSTER (m. Justus BROWN), Jane WEBSTER (m. Andrew BROWN), and Philotha WEBSTER (m. Abraham BROWER)--all of whom lived in Herkimer County, NY, Montgomery County, NY, and/or Otsego County, NY--been daughters of this Martin WEBSTER?
