Gideon was born to them in early July 1709.

On July 27, 1755, Gideon of Haddam CT married
Temperance Huff of Chester in Saybrook CT.
Gideon Webb served in the French & Indian War, believed to be his
first such service, in November of 1756 and his last in 1762.
Gideon had just married in July of 1755, but according to vhttp://history.rays-place.com/ct/windham-fr-ind.htm
he became a volunteer soldier in November of the following year.
Gideon served in the 7 year French and Indian War from 1756-1762.
In 1758 he served for the 3rd Regiment in Connecticut under the command
of Colonel & Captain Eleazer Fitch in the 11th Company. His

French and Indian War, ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris by

Gideon survived the French and Indian War years and did not die until
February 1799 at 89!
Temperance lived until December 22, 1793, having lived a long life of
Note: The conclusion of the French and Indian War resulted in
the Paris Peace Treaty when France soundly lost; ultimately this led to
the American Revolution as the colonists now were no longer afraid of
war with Britain and saw it as perhaps the only way to end British
dominance and obligations of little or no value to the new country
citizens. The Webbs were involved in both the French and Indian
War and the issues of the forthcoming American Revolution.

FOR Margaret Fuller (nee Houck),
age 78 years, Feb. 25,
1928. Beloved wife of the late Martin. Mother of:
- Mrs. Edward Joyce (This is Francis P. Fretter,
daughter of Margaret Houck when married to Peter Fretter)

Houck Fuller was born 11/11/1851 in Cleveland OH and died
there on Feb 23, 1928, widow of husband and Civil War
veteran Martin Fuller. Margaret resided at 1666 West
39th St in Cleveland when she died but this is evidently now
a vacant lot. There is no gravestone for her, but she
and Martin are at same cemetery: Monroe Street Cemetery

||Did Effie and Leland Paddock divorce?
||Effie's second husband George Anson Webb working
as truck driver for furniture company in OH
||George, Effie and all kids
living together in Avon Lake, OH. Does
this mean that Paddock and Effie were only married for a couple
of years at most?? Did George take her into his home in
1930 or so for sake of their kids between her many marriages?
1930 Census for Lorain, Avon Lake, OH:
|OCT 9, 1933
||But Effie, wanting to
marry yet again, is listed on this marriage license as the
daughter of Martin H. Fuller and Margaret Houck Fuller
(Correct) AND Effie lists a former husband (appearing to be only
one she notes on license as "Webb" who is "Dec'd" (dead).
What happened to George Webb? This is 1933. George lives
until 1952. Appears to be the lies we tell the marriage license
board...hummm. George Webb will not be dead for many years
and she has conveniently evidently excluded other marriages also
to Beranek and Paddock.
