Surely this will be of interest to someone in Greensville County, Virginia.

William Addams Reitwiesner at wargs@wargs.com
lists:

Zachariah T Doyle, b. Greensville Co., Va., 8 April 1815, d. Benton Co., Miss., m. 26 May 1847.

He shows him to be one of the GREAT-GREAT-GRANDPARENTS of James Henry Webb Jr., b. St. Joseph, Mo., 9 Feb. 1946, currently US Senator from Virginia.

Francis Adolphus Doyle, (GREAT-GRANDPARENT) b. Emporia, Va., 9 Sept. 1854, d. Kensett, Ark., 15 June 1936
m. Atoka, Ark., 21 March 1878

Frankie Georgia Doyle (GRANDPARENT), b., Tenn., 1 Sept. 1893, d. 3 Aug. 1976 [SSDI 430-26-3431]


Senator Webb's earliest Webb ancestor listed is
GREAT-GREAT-GRANDPARENT David G Webb, b N. C., 1817, m. 13 Sept. 1853.

Looks like Senator Webb's family migrated into Virginia from North Carolina. That's opposite to what most did. Perhaps they were returning. Were these Webbs related to the Greensville / Brunswick Webbs that I've researched?

(Senator Webb's line continued)
GREAT-GRANDPARENT
James Thomas Webb, b. Scott Co., Va., 24 July 1859, d. Platte Co., Mo., 11 Oct. 1906
m. 9 July 1881

This family was really on the move -- from N.C. into Va, then into Mo, then Ky.

GRANDPARENT
Robert Lee Webb, b. Morgan Co., Ky., 5 Aug. 1885, d. Los Angeles, Cal., 17 March 1958
m. 21 Dec. 1910

Finally to Arkansas!!
PARENT
James Henry Webb, b. St. Joseph, Mo., 10 Dec. 1917, d., Ark., 28 Feb. 1997 [SSDI 500-07-8634]

James Henry Webb married Vera Lorraine Hodges, b. Searcy, Ark., 24 June 1925 .

Her father was Birch Hays Hodges, b. Ky, 25 Nov. 1877, d. White Co., Ark., 11 June 1936
m. 6 July 1914.

Her mother was Frankie Georgia Doyle, b., Tenn., 1 Sept. 1893, d. 3 Aug. 1976 [SSDI 430-26-3431]

None of this is my work, so don't give me credit, or assume that it's all correct.

When I was a boy, the pastor of Southside Missionary Baptist Church at Star City, Arkansas, where my family attended, was a Rev. Conan Doyle. I wonder if there was a connection.
