Searching for WEBB family
Posted by: Mark Webb (ID *****3485) Date: February 29, 2004 at 05:53:48

I am searching for information on the WEBB family of Onondaga. There appear to be a number of families of this name in early (1800-1840) Onondaga County. One is Benjamin Webb b. abt. 1756, who married Ann Hannah De Angelis. A second family, in which I have a great deal of interest, is the James Webb family. One apparent daughter to this individual (who was Clerk, and possibly a Judge) is Helen Webb, who married Horace Wheaton. Any information on ancestry of this family is appreciated.

One other family group, possibly related to James Webb above, is a Jabez Webb, who was "killed by the falling of a tree" in 1806/7. I believe this individual to be a son of Jabez and Elisabeth (Smith) Webb of Ashford, Ct. Jabez of Ashford was a son of John and Ann (Devotion) of Windham, Ct. One theory is that the James Webb family may have been an uncle or brother to Jabez of Onondaga.

A second theory is that the James Webb family is of Saybrook/Chester, Ct, or of Long Island. The Benjamin Webb mentioned in this query married into the De Angelis family; Saybrook records show a second marriage of a daughter of William Webb (of Long Island) to Pascal De Angelis, who migrated to Oneida County. Benjamin of Onondaga is believed to be a son of John and Lydia (Pike) Webb of Saybrook, Ct. There are also apparent descendants of Samuel Webb of Saybrook in marriage records of this time.

Thanks in advance.
