Family Friday: Webb

Ella Irene Webb, my first cousin, three times removed, was born in Allen County, Kansas, on March 29, 1867 and died there of scarlet fever on March 26, 1880, just a few days short of her 13th birthday.

She's doubly related to me as her father, Jesse Sill Webb (1826-1923) was the brother of my great great grandfather Abner Webb and her mother Nancy Adelia Darling (1836-1911) was the younger sister of my great great grandmother Mercy Ann Darling.
