Are you sure? Because I am a DAR member and I found Stephen WEBB data on the current DAR Patriot Index database online, not in a old book. Here is what the site says "...if your ancestor is recognized by the DAR as a Revolutionary Patriot, ...." They are listed in this online Patriot Index already.
What the DAR is doing now is to have all new members redo the paperwork to join. For instance, I had to gather all the proof of lineage because I was told my grangmother had joined back in 1973 and that some sources may have been incorrect at that time. (And behold, some were). But I was still able to use her application to find the clues I needed to track down the correct sources.
You may want to send for the Stephen WEBB application anyway. It can be included in your current DAR application (I don't know about SAR rules). "Application papers of active, deceased, resigned, or dropped DAR members may be requested from the Office of Registrar General, Record Copy, for a fee of $10.00, check payable to Treasurer General, NSDAR." http://www.dar.org/cgi-bin/natsociety/content.cfm?ID=146&hd=n&FO=Y At the very least, I hope you find good clues on the application(s).
