The above is a great Ezell family site and was the source for some of this information. William and Edmund Webb are mentioned. There is also evidence on the site that the Ezells and the Striblings owned land next to each other in the Union District of South Carolina about 1806.
Susannah (LYLES) EZELL, the last wife of William Ezell, and Miriam (EZELL) LONG, William Ezell's youngest child, were buried in the LONG Plot in Gilead Cemetery in Union Co., S.C. The plot was surrounded by an iron fence.
Her tombstone read - "Sacred to the memory of Susannah EZELL who departed this life 27 May 1853, in her 82nd year of age. She was a member of the Baptist Church upwards of 50 years."
This indicates Susannah was born in 1772. She was younger than William Ezell's daughter Delilah, who was born in 1769.
Dalilah (Delilah), born to William Ezell and Susanna in Albemarle Parish, Va., Aug. 18, 1769; Christened October 29th. Sponsors or godparents were Andrew Felts, Anne Felts, Anne Seat.
(Delilah Ezell became the first wife of Charles Webb of Anderson, S.C.)
Delilah's mother was named Susanna, but she is not the last Susanna. Delilah's mother was Susanna Seat.
Before William Ezell was married to Susanna Lyles, he had been married to her half-sister Rhoda Lyles. Rhoda was the mother of Miriam. Rhoda died when Miriam was very young.
William and the last Susanna had no children.
Charles Webb made his will on 14 July 1828.
William Ezell made his on December 1829
Charles Webb died 11 November 1831 at age 64.
William Ezell's will was recorded 2 July 1832.
He was born in 1749, so he must have been about 83.
William Ezell, son of Thomas Ezell, Jr. and Anne.
born May 21, 1749.
Gpts: William Rolland, Wm. Harris, Sarah Rose.
According to this website article, shortly before William Ezell died around 1831/2, he bragged that if Susannah should die first, he would marry again even if he knew he had only six months to live. Susannah survived him by 21 years.
Surely, that was an attempt at humor on his part.
It took over twenty years to resolve his estate!!!
I would say that seeing his much younger former son-in-law decline in health made William Ezell aware of his own mortality.
With so many children...... 15 sons and 6 daughters?? .... he still remembered Delilah's children, William and Edmund Webb, in his will.
How did he even remember all their names, much less provide food and clothing for them?
So, when Charles Webb was working for him in Virginia in 1787, William must have had a pacel of young children, including Delilah, who would have been 17 or 18.
One thing that tells me.... if William had so many children there in VA, but we have a record of only a few there -- then how many brothers and sisters did Charles Webb have that aren't in the records? If John and Lucy Webb of Greensville, VA, had only four children -- Temperance, Charles, Micajah Jr., and Sally -- that would have been a novelty.
