Notes for Samuel Smith Webb
Although the dates and information make this look like it could be suspect, the research was done by William Edward Webb (1928-2001) who was the grandson of Samuel Smith Webb. Although Samuel Smith Webb and Amanda E. Lee were both dead at the time of William Edward Webb’s birth, he should have been well aware of the names of his grandparents.

An S.S. Webb is listed on pages 474 and 532 of “Sumner County Inventories and Settlements, September, 1887 - November, 1909” suggesting that he probably died in that time span.650 His uncle George Zaricor is also in the book on pages 110-113 and 117.

Here are two listings of people with similar names who died in the civil war. Since there are many Samuel Webbs in my database, I include them here just so I have a record of them (even though I am nearly certain that these are not relating to this Samuel Smith Webb).

Of Co. F, Geo. Doan, James W. Emmert, Jesse Collins, Nathan Galloway, Wm. Gray, and Wm. Cox were killed, and Geo. Smith captured and died in prison. Among the wounded the following are remembered: Capt. C. R. Millard, severely wounded. Frank A. Moses, the gallant standard-bearer of the Sixty-third, while bearing the flag to victory, was severely wounded in two or three places, whereupon James A. Lindamood, of Co. E, seized the flag, and bearing it aloft called loudly for the men to go forward. In this battle Adam Harr, a brave private of Co. F, was shot in the head and in the left side, and as he called for help he was asked, "Where are you shot, Adam?" In response he said, "Right through the heart and right through the brain." He still lives.

All sources of data are documented on the “Person Sheet” for each individual. My early data often came from less-than-reliable sources (e.g., “Sarah’s genealogy pages”). If the only sources for a person is something like that or worse there is no listed source for data, please take the information as only a suggestion and not a fact.
