6th great-grandparents on Webb maternal side: 
Gideon Webb (July 1, 1709 in Saybrook CT to 18 Feb 1799 in Saybrook) & wife ,
Temperance Huff/Hough Webb (April 8, 1708 in East Haddam CT to Dec 22, 1793 in Chester, Middlesex, CT), daughter of Jonathan and Silence Bates Hough/Huff


Gideon Webb is the son of John Webb and wife Ruth Graves Webb.  Gideon was born to them in early July 1709. 

Temperance Huff or Hough was the daughter of Silence Bates and Jonathan Hough who married on April 10, 1707 in Saybrook CT.

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 v 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 co-commander was Capt Timothy Mather.


In 1761 he was serving in the 2nd Regiment for Connecticut with the Regiment Command being Colonel and Captain Nathan Whiting, First Company.



In 1762 he was still fighting in the French and Indian War, this time in the 1st Regiment under the command of Phineas Lyman, Major-General, in the 10th Company.  The co-command was Capt. Hugh Ledlie.



The Seven Years’ War, a global conflict known in America as the French and Indian War, ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris by France, Great Britain, and Spain in 1763.

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 85 years!


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.



5th great-grandparents on Webb maternal side: 
Reuben Webb (1756- earlier than 1813) and wife
Eunice Bissell  Webb (1757-1832)

Eunice Bissell Webb was born in 1757 to parents Ephraim and Susanna Warner Bissell. She had 4 known children: Reuama, Thomas, Reuben Jr., Ephraim.  Eunice died in 1832. She is buried at Cable Cemetery, Florence, Erie County, OH.

Her husband Ephraim Webb arrived in NY around the time that Benjamin did.  Ben gave 50 acres of land to Ephraim for clearing 10 acres owned by Ben.  Ephraim and Alathear remained in NY for only a few years.  Click on the blue outlined photo to see the large picture of the land that Ephraim owned.

BERANEK in Cuyahoga OH.  File number is 00886221,  Her parents are listed as "Fred Fuller" and "Maggie Pollock" but later in research she is listed as having divorced Beranek and George Webb (her second divorce) to marry Leland Paddock.  So, Albert Beranek is her first husband and George Webb is #2.  Leland will be #3 (and a 4th is upcoming!) Effie's 1st Marriage ALBERT BERANEK
Before 1910 Effie and Albert Beranek divorce.  No known children.

Feb 28 1928 OBIT Plain Dealer(Cleveland,Ohio), Feb. 28, 1928, p. 23: 
OBITUARY 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)
  • Mrs. Leland Paddock (this is Effie Webb who is married to Leland Paddock now)
  • Thomas D. Fretter (Peter and Margaret's son)
  • John Henry (Peter and Margaret's son)
  • Wildrick Fetter (???Perhaps Margaret's stepson?)
  • Robert Roy Fuller. (son of Margaret and Robert Fuller; and full sibling of Effie Fuller)

    Mom Margaret 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 in Cleveland Plot: Section: D. Lot: 04, Grave: 03.

Between 1928 and 1930?? Did Effie and Leland Paddock divorce? ??
1930 Effie's second husband George Anson Webb working as truck driver for furniture company in OH  
1930 Census 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. 

THIS MARRIAGE IS TO JOSEPH JESSIE FALL. They were wed on October 9, 1933 in Cuyahoga County, OH.  He lists one previous divorce (name unknown).  

Effie's 4th Marriage Joseph Jessie Fall
1940 CENSUS Joseph Fall and Effie Mae Fuller Webb Fall are living together in Cleveland in rented home.  He is a sailor.

Court per one of Effie's marriage licenses;  and no other marriages from 1925 to 1941 for George are known to me.
ABT. 1942 In 1942 GEORGE ANSON WEBB completed a WWII draft registration card.  Now he was 52 and living at 4718 Bridge Ave., Cleveland, Cuyahoga, OH.

No wife is listed for George who married Elizabeth Buynack in 1941.  Where is she?

Grandparents on Webb maternal side:
Helen Mae Webb (July 28, 1916 in OH - September 3, 1986 in OH)

Joseph Michael Horvath, Jr. ("
Mickey") (April 7, 1910 NJ- died Jan 31 1972 OH)

Effie and George Anson Webb's daughter Helen married twice.  The first marriage is the more important one to this lineage.  The second marriage was to a stepfather (Mr. Vanderlin) to her children.

On July 3, 1935, with the "consent of her parents," Effie and George Anson Webb, Helen Webb married Joseph Horvath, Jr.  in Cleveland, OH.  This was their first marriage.  She was 18 and residing at 2021 West 47th Street in Cleveland at the time she wed. 
Her residence was the small two-story home was built in 1900 with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths.

Her husband Joseph Horvath was 25 and had been living at 1742 W 24th St in Trenton, NJ where he was working as a window cleaner.
His parents listed on the marriage license are Joseph Horvath and Mary Horamy Horvath. 
Joseph and Helen married in Cuyahoga County, OH.


Joseph "Mickey" Horvath and wife Helen Webb Horvath had two children; a Joan who died young or infancy;  followed by Phyllis Mae Horvath who gave him 6 living grandchildren at the time of Joseph's death.

It appears they were married for many years although the death notice indicates he was "divorced" sometime before his death on January 28, 1972 at a long term facility in North Olmsted, Cuyahoga County OH.

Joseph Michael Horvath is buried at West Park Cem. in Cleveland OH.

His obituary in the Plain Dealer Newspaper on Jan 31 reads:

Their daughter Phyllis Horvath, who grew up to marry Benjamin Wesley Cator, is listed in this obit
as Mrs. Phyllis Cator.  He is listed as the granddad of six.

14 years later, Helen Webb Horvath Quinlan died on 3 Sept 1986 in OH.  She passed away at Southwest General Hospital in Middleburg Hts, Cuyahoga OH at the age of 70.  Helen is listed as a registered nurse for Personnel Supply Service.  Helen was autopsied for purposes of a death certificate but the findings are not known on this.  At the time of her death, she was the widow of __________ Quinlan according to this record. 

I am so far not identifying Mr. Quinlan. 

Interesting Tidbit!

Effie May and George Anson Webb had a son, your Great Uncle, named George Martin "Spider" Webb.  He served in World War II in the US Army.  "Spider" married twice and his second wife was Lucy K. "The Brat" Aumock Webb.  They are buried at Chestnut Grove Cemetery in Ashland OH, complete with the nicknames engraved upon their shared tombstone!

What might be the story behind these curiously surprising and
most unusual nicknames???  Do you know?
