Dr. Edmund Webb of Anderson, South Carolina, son of Charles Webb and Delilah Ezell, was born in Virginia in 1787.

One of the children of Dr. Edmund Webb and Martha Emerson of Anderson, S.C., was the very industrious Thomas Jefferson Webb.

Two of Thomas Jefferson (TJ) Webb's 5 children by Elizabeth Frances Williamson were Julia Rebecca Webb and William Miles Webb.

One of Julia's children was named Jefferson Webb von Hasseln. He was called Webb von Hasseln. Webb von Hasseln was born 22 Jul 1884. He was an accomplished musician and academian, and became dean of the music department at Anderson College. His father was apparently a first generation German emigrant.

One of Julia Rebecca Webb von Hasseln's brothers was William Miles Webb.

Kate Bewley married William Miles Webb in Anderson, SC. Kate Bewley Webb's parents were James Hale Bewley of Anderson, SC and Jeanie McCord of Abbeville, SC. They were married in Abbeville on 02 Dec 1873 by the Rev. W. T. Capers "at the residence of the bride's grandfather, Mr. John Davis of Abbeville."

William Miles Webb and Kate were were the parents of Robert William Webb, who was born 04 Mar 1895 in Anderson, South Carolina, at a home on West Market Street. The other children were William, Edmund, Julian, James, Thomas, and Elizabeth.

William Miles Webb and his brother Robert Webb (sons of TJ Webb) owned a general store on the square in Anderson, South Carolina, in the late 1800s and after the turn of the century.

Robert William Webb, the son of William Miles Webb, married Jean Marie High of Gulfport, MS. Their only child, Robert, was born in 1945 in Washington, DC where Robert William Webb was working as a research scientist in the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Robert William Webb and Jean Marie High were divorced when their son was 2 years old. Neither ever remarried.

Jean Marie High Webb took her son back to a farm north of Gulfport, MS, where she and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. High, raised him. Nevertheless, Robert and his father stayed very close throughout his life, and they spent a lot of time together, usually in the summers, and often in Clemson and Anderson.

One of Robert William Webb's brothers, Edmund von Hasseln Webb, and his family lived in Clemson in the 1950s where he was a manager of the local JP Stevens finishing mill. They later moved to Cheraw where he headed the mill there until his retirement. Robert and his father used to visit them and spend time together in Clemson and later, in Cheraw as he was growing up.

Robert, the son of Robert William Webb, married Jane in 1966. She was one of seven children.

Today, Robert Webb is working in a company he founded in 1974 -- Webb, Murray & Associates, Inc. Here's a link to his company's web page http://webb-murray.com/

"Webb, Murray & Associates was established in 1974 by two registered engineers, formerly with DuPont, and since has provided professional services to industry and government.
Since its beginning, Webb, Murray has served chemical, petrochemical, and refining companies along the Texas Gulf Coast. We provided safety and fire protection services for NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) from 1980-1994. Our rapid growth was recognized by Inc. Magazine in 1982, 1983, and 1984 when the publication named Webb, Murray as one of the 500 fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States.
We have been committed to quality service to our customers since our beginning, but in 1990 a new structure began to take shape. We held several leadership conferences, based on the theme In Pursuit of Excellence, from the studies of Tom Peters. Many of our associates attended the conferences in the years that followed. In 1990 we also began to study Dr. W. Edward Deming's philosophy of management. In early 1991 we selected seven key company leaders to form our Quality Steering Committee (QSC) and to become our advanced Deming students. Since then many associates have attended Deming seminars, and we have trained others internally in the Deming philosophy.
We have a customer-driven, people-centered approach to quality which recognizes the worth of the individual, and applies it in an aligned way to provide world-class services to our customers. It is our aim to continuously improve every system in our company in a way which improves our service and products."


Robert (Bob) Webb, born 1945, lives near Houston at League City, TX 77573
