Notes

Note
In 1777, George Webb migrated to East Tenessee, with all of his sons. Daniel Boone, a first cousin to George, had spent time in the Watauga Valley a few years before and perhaps this was the cause of George's migration to that particular area. George spent some time on the Watauga, buying and selling land, before finally settling near Bluff City on the South Holston River in what is now Sullivan Co., TN.

Note
Judge George Webb was on the Grand Jury that indicted the Tory Dykes, according to an account given by Katherine White in her book "Kings Mountain Men". She also mentions the Battle of Kings Mountain and that George Web was perhaps a captain. According to the pension declarations of Benjamin and George, Jr., both Captain David Webb and Captain Jonathan Webb were also in that battle. The Battle of Kings Mountain, it must be remembered, was the first victory the Colonist experienced in the War od Independence. It was there that these "backwoodsmen" soldiers inflicted such ignominous defeat to General Ferguson's British Army that the tide of the war began to swing in favor of the Colonists.

Note
Later, George Webb and his sons took up vast amounts of land on the South Holston River where they permanently settled. He died in Sullivan Co., TN in 1812, at the age of 89 yrs old.

Records show that George Webb, Sr. was granted 613 acres on Beaver Creek on 10 Oct. 1783. Captain John Webb was granted 625 on 23 Oct. 1782, and Benjamin Webb was granted 240 acres on 23 Oct. joininh John Webb's line. All these tracts of land were located in the vacinity of the present Bluff City, TN, which was called Shoats Ford in pioneer times.

George Webb's sons were referred to by historians of Sullivan Co., TN as "The Family of Revolutionary War Fame". With the exception of Capt. John and George Webb, Jr., we know very little about the descendants of the other sons of George Webb, Sr.
