In a message dated 1/31/2005 2:02:05 PM Eastern Standard Time,
time period I found by research that my GG Uncle William Nane Evans had moved
to Moline Township, Rock Island County, Illinois from Worcester, Maryland in
1836, and that my Maternal Great Aunt and Grand Father was living on the
Worcester County Maryland has been my saddest genealogical experience. For
three years my brick wall has been my ggggggrandfather John Webb, who received a
King's Grant in NC
Supposedly he was born in 1717. I had never been able to trace him back
further than that, but found a family tree on Ancestry.com
with a John Webb born the right year, married the right year, 1740, and whose
wife died in 1750, which could have been his reason for coming South.
After much research, purchase of several books, etc., I found this John died
right there in Worcester in 1797.
However I'm trying his brother Robert now, born in 1682, who could have also
had a son John by the right date. And my jOHN'S oldest son was named Robert.
Is anyone else reseaching this family? Earliest know ancestor Richard Webb.
