Achilles Webb

The following is a little bit of information about a man named Achilles Webb. A Bible record was sent to me and I added some census data and an entry from FindaGrave. All together we can conclude that Achilles Webb was one of the early settlers of Ohio County and that he lived a long life and raised many children. It looks like his first wife died in 1888 and he remarried (see 1900 census), and it looks like his son, Thomas E. Webb, ended up living in Texas (the apparent source of the Bible record).
