WATSON, WEBB posted by Lynda L. Wirth on Wednesday, September 3, 1997 

WEBB: I am search for the parents and siblings of Richard Daron WEBB. He was born in Shelby Co. in 1799. According to a biography, his father took the place of the oldest son during the War of 1812 and was killed. However, I have not been able to verify this. Richard WEBB married Hester Eliza (Hettie) WATSON in Oldham Co. in 1828. Shoerly thereafter they moved to first Piatt Co. and then Dewitt Co., Il. He was listed as one of the early pioneers of that area.

I am researching GRIFFITH in Shelby Co. before 1830. Benjamin GRIFFITH married Polly ROBERTS 1 Jun 1804. His son Jackson GRIFFITH married Nancy KNOWELS or NOWELS, daughter of Thomas, 16 Mar 1828. It is a DAR record that states she was the daughter of Thomas. J. Whitaker attested to this marriage. I will be very pleased with any information that I can get on any of these people.
