J.E. Webb, Elberton, GA Blacksmith, early 1900's
Posted by: Hank Pitts (ID *****6879) Date: August 29, 2007 at 19:36:39
  of 17826

My great-grandfather J.E. Webb, the son of James W. Webb and Sarah Cook Webb was a blacksmith in Elbert County in the early 1900's. He was born 03 Mar 1876, married Ola Jackson (a Mattox decendant) 01 Aug 1896, and died 06 Feb 1963. The obit is copied below. James W. Webb's father was Gaines T. Webb, born 26 Jun 1821, married Martha A. McClanhan 16 Dec 1852, and died 08 Oct 1890. If any of the Webbs in Elbert County, GA and/or surrounding areas has any history of this Webb family, I am really stuck trying to learn this Webb line earlier than Ganies T. Webb. Any help is most appreiciated.
Thanks so very much,
V/r..Hank Pitts
