My great grandmother Rachel (Blackwell) Webb was born Sept. 7,1841 somewhere in North Carolina. Her father was Joe Blackwell and I don't know who her mother was.
Andrew Jackson Webb was born Sept. 27, 1840 in Jefferson County Tennessee. In 1862, he enlisted and was given the rank of 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. 2nd Tennessee Cavalry, Army of the Cumberland. Until 1870, A.J.and his brother had a farm six miles west of Seiverville Tennessee. His brother died in 1867 from wounds received at the battle of Chickamauga. A.J. Webb and his family moved to Burnet Texas in 1870 and he became a foreman at the granite quarry at Marble Falls,Texas. Lt. A.J. Webb was also in the battle of Chickamuga and survived Confederate Gen. Longstreet's attack at Chickamauga Creek. The Webb brothers were discharged in 1865 at Nashville.
A.J. and Rachel (Blackwell) Webb had eight children, the first three were born in Jefferson County Tennessee from 1863 until 1867 and the rest in Burnett County Texas from 1873 through 1883. Rachel died on Sept. 3,1891 in Brown County Texas.
Many settlers including the Wyatts and Webbs in southeast Brown County and in the area around the Williams Ranch Community were not in the 1880 Brown County Federal Census. Much of that area of Brown County became Mills County when Mills County was established in 1886. Aparently, the residents in that area were missed in the 1880 Federal Census entirely.
