States: Missouri: Ripley
That's just it! I don't know who my William R. Webb belongs to. What I do know - he says he was born in 1847 in Missouri. He married Ida Alice Cole Rodgers in 1893 at Doniphan, MO. In 1900 they were still at Doniphan with Alice's children and their 4 children (one being my father-in law Acie Rile Webb twin to Gracie born in 1894 in Doniphan) Alice marries William Crystal Goodnight in Doniphan in 1903. She later moves to Corning, Arkansas. I can find no mention of William R. since the 1900 Ripley County census. I find a William Riley but can't match him up. I feel as though William Or "Bill" must have been married before Alice as he was approx. 46 years old when they married. My father-in-law is listed as John Rile on the 1900 census but his actual name was Acie Rile or Acie Riley Webb (was he named after Willaim Riley)? I do know that the name John Whitley Webb and Lula Jane Webb was written in an old Bible of my mother-in-law's. I don't remember the exact birthdates but I think one of them was born in the 1880s. Were these children William's? Or were these a brother and sister to him? Everytime I think I've found a link it doesn't pan out. My husband thinks I'm silly to try to get him to do a DNA test. He thinks they are too expensive. Do you have any ideas?
