WEBB, Kentucky to Kansas....

I am looking for others working on the WEBB family in the Holton area of Jackson co. Ks.

Here is an obit that tells alot of names and the story=

Milton Webb was born in Madison Co. Kentucky Dec. 20, 1851. There he grew into manhood and on May 24, 1871, he was married to Miss Eliza Sewll, of the same county, where they spent the early part of their married life, later moving to illinois for a few years, and then to Kansas, where they spent several years on a farm near the town of Holton.
Thirteen children came to bless this union, they are= John & Jesse Webb, Mrs. T. J. Lindsey and Mrs. Tom Ward of Holton, Bub Webb of Whiting, Charlie Webb and Mrs. Eva Pierson of Ohio, Thomas Webb and Mrs. Bertha Conner of Kentucky, Earl Webb of Mapelton Mo., Guy and William Webb who still are at home. One son Jimmie died several years ago.
Mr. Webb removed to Kentucky, where his wife died in 1901, leaving him with this large family of children. In 1902, Mr. Webb was married to Miss Lucy White of Witts Springs and to them was born one son, Houston Webb, now aged 8 Yrs. Two years ago last fall, Mr. Webb returned to Kansas and settled near his former home. Last October he moved to the Kickapoo reservation near Whiting.
Feb. 3, 1911 the summons came and he passed peacefully to rest. The funeral was held at the M.E. Church in Netawaka, conducted by the Rev. Landin. The six sons acted as pall bearers and the remains laid to rest in the Netawaka cemetery.

If any one knows of this family, or any descendants...please contact me.
