 Jesse Webb Senior of Chestnut Hill, Jefferson County, Tennessee



Pension file S3501-Jesse stated that he enlisted in 1781 in Greene County, North Carolina under Captain Lusk who commanded a company in the North Carolina Regiment commanded by Colonel Middleton.  The regiment was marched across the Santee River in South Carolina and later to Eutaw Springs where they joined in the battle there under General Nathaniel Greene, in the brigade under General Sumter, later Jesse's company marched to Orangeburgh, South Carolina where they fought Tories until his term expired. Sometime after the war, Jesse was in Franklin County, Georgia. There is a record that he made a deed there in 1790 for 297.5 acres of a 1788 land grant. He received a land grant in Jefferson County, Tennessee in 1807, one of those first ones which indicated occupancy long before 1807.


The Jesse Webb home was located at Chestnut Hill, the site now owned by Ruth & Hollis Thornton. The original log house burned.


On Sunday afternoon, October 22, 1978 a stirring service of dedication of the marker for Jesse Webb was conducted in the Chestnut Hill Cemetery by Newport's William Cocke Chapter of the DAR.


"The big problem finding the parents of John and Jesse.  First, they were living in the Colony of Georgia. John was a private in the army stationed at Ft. Stuard (Stewart?), and Jesse was there with him. John was transferred to Savanna for awhile, and when he returned, Jesse also joined the Army. They were stationed at Fort Nails together. They were chased out of Georgia into what is now east Tennessee by the British, Indians and Tories. This is how Jesse and John came to be in this part of the country, Jefferson County." ..... Jay S. Webb


BURIAL SITE OF JESSE WEBB: Webb Cemetery, Chestnut Hill, Jefferson, Tennessee Tombstone reveals name: Jesse Owen Webb


Good morning DeCody,

"It pains me to see so much of this "stuff" spread about. With the advent of computers and the ability to post information on the internet, so much is being concocted, useing a smattering of fact with a lot of speculation, to much misinformation is being passed about.

(1) Jesse Webb did not have a middle name. Owen was a fabrication by a stone mason in what is now still living history.

(2) Jesse and John were living in the Colony of Georgia when the revolution got into full swing. John was in the army and Jesse was with him at Fort Stewart (Stuard). They came to North Carolina (now Tennessee) because they were chased out of Georgia by the British army, Indians and Tories.

(3) Jesse sold some land in Georgia as an Heir of a Thomas Webb. There was a Thomas Webb who served as a private, then Ensign and later a colonel under Oglethorpe's Regiment in the Colonial Wars. It was the colonial wars that brought men to Georgia under Oglethorpe. It appears that this Thomas Webb may have come from Maryland as there is one listed in Capt. Beall's Co. of Prince George's Maryland earlier on. Since John and Jesse were stationed at Nails Fort, it was likely because their father was serving as an officer- not just a private. A lot of research still has to be done.

(4) The Merry Webb family from Henry County Virginia is "Well" researched and documented. Although some of the children were in what is now east tennessee, no connection with John And Jesse have been established." - 1998, Jay S. Webb

After Jesse sold his land in Georgia, he then returned to what is now Tennessee.

The area at that time was a territory of the U. S. government, called "territory south of the River Ohio".

Since no land grants were being issued, and there was lots of vacant land south of the Holston River, Jesse went to the headwaters of Muddy Creek (now Chestnut Hill, Jefferson County, Tennessee) and staked out a claim. He built a house and he and Anna commenced farming and raising their family.

State of Tennessee Sevier County: I received a few lines from the pension office under date of the 14th November 1844 And it appears from the letter received from the pension office that some mistake or misstatement has been sent you about my service in the revolutionary war. I will now state the facts and try and correct the error the facts are as follows: first I will speak of the case of Elizabeth Webb the widow of John Webb. John Webb Enlisted under a Captain Stuard [sic] for the term of eighteen months at a Fort called Fort Stuard in the State of Georgia and served eighteen months in the service of the United States under said Captain Stuard and the time of the revolutionary war one part of his time at Fort Stuard during which time I was, in Fort Stuard with him when in my boyhood and the balance of his time of eighteen months in service about Savannah Georgia. Further John Webb served with me at a Fort called Nails Fort in the State of Georgia but the length of time I cannot now recollect. But my own time of service at Nails Fort was six months. And he served longer than I did but how much longer I cannot now recollect. And that John Webb after removing from the State of Georgia to North Carolina then now Tennessee Greene County, he served some length of time as a spy but how long I do not recollect. And that after my time of service in the Army had expired I returned to Greene County then North Carolina but now Tennessee and found John Webb husband of Elizabeth Webb and his wife Elizabeth Webb living together in Greene County with two children. And that the legality of their marriage never has been disputed to my knowledge.

And that in order to correct the error a heretofore spoken of in this statement I will say first that I served six months in the time of the revolutionary war at Nails Fort in the State of Georgia. And after I served the six months at Nails Fort I was twice taken a prisoner and detained a prisoner about one month. And after that I came to North Carolina then, now Tennessee Greene County where I enlisted under Captain Lusk from there I went and joined head quarters in South Carolina below the high hills of Santee. And there I served ten months under a Captain Waters being transferred from Captain Lusk to Captain Waters' Company in Colonel Middleton's Regiment. From which service of ten months I have been drawing a pension for some years past. I will further state to the Department that when I first applied through my friend Napoleon Bradford who attended to my business that I requested him to apply as well for the time I had served at Nails Fort in the State of Georgia and the time I had been a prisoner as the time I served in the regular Army which he failed to do. But for which service I think yet I am justly entitled, to receive pay. Given under my hand this 8th day of January 1845. S/ Jesse Webb, X his mark

Jesse Webb’s Family Bible Has Been Found


For a genealogist, a family Bible is a wonderful source of information. This is where all of the vital statistics –births, marriages, deaths of a family were recorded. In years past, the Bible might be the only book that a family owned and it was carefully cared for.

Last year, it was learned that the family Bible of Jesse Webb (1766-1848), a Revolutionary soldier of this area, had been found. This should be of interest of a great number of people in this area because his descendants around here are numerous, probably into the thousands.

The Bible is now in the possession of a great-great-great-great-great-grandson, Luther Webb, in Charlotte, NC. The Bible descended from Jesse to his son Joseph who live on Soxby in the area on Stonebrook. Joseph’s son James owned the Bible next. It was James’ great-great-grandson Jasper Webb and his son Bruce who found the Bible. Its discovery is nothing less than remarkable.

The two men were visiting a Webb home site on Webb’s Mountain in Sevier County in the vicinity of the present Bent Creek (Cobbly Nob) development. The old house had burned but the chimney and part of a wall were standing. Having been told that the Bible was stored behind one of the chimney stones, they found a loose stone, removed it, and there was the Bible! Try to imagine how long it had been there!

Thomas Webb, a descendant of Jesse Webb through his son Thomas, made a special trip from his home in Potomac, MD to Charlotte on May 29, 1999, to examine the Bible. He was kind enough to furnish photo copies of the pages containing the family data, as well as the

            The size of the Bible is three inches thick, four and one-quarter inches wide and six and five-eighths inches in height. The binding of the Bible is of dark brown deer skin. The cover of the Bible is totally detached from the pages. There are four obvious separate sections of the paper making up the total Bible along with many single pages and parts of pages. The edges of all the pages are dark brown and the edges are very brittle. There are no pages stuck to either the inside front cover or the inside back cover. The cover on the outside is indented with the impression of four fingers of a hand and the outside of the other cover has a worn smooth area of a thumb. The Bible itself is divided into three sections: the first is the Old Testament, the second is the New Testament and third is the Psalms in Metre each have a Title Page. The Title page for the Old Testament is missing. Since that page is missing, could it be that that page might have had some additional names? It seems that names were place on any blank page; that is on the back of the New Testament title page, the last page in the Bible, the bottom half of the last printed page in the Bible, and as we found on the back of the title page of Psalms in Metre.

The title page of the New Testament indicates that it was published in Edinburgh by Mark and Charles Kerr, His Majesty’s Printers, in MDCCXC (1790).

On the reverse side of this page were the following births: (copied as written)

Henry Webb was born in the September the 3d 1786

Mary Webb was born in October the 3d 1788

Thomas Webb was Aprile 25 1795

Susannah Webb was born July 28 1797

On the bottom half of the last printed page and the blank page at the end of the Bible next to the back cover were listed:

John Webb was born April 25d 1804

William Webb was born Aprile 10d 1805

On the reverse side of that page were these names:

Betsy Webb Novemb the 4th 1792

Betsy Mcmurtry Novem 19th 1791

John Mcmurtry February the 18th 1798

It is not known just who the McMurtrys are, but they are relatives. Jesse Webb’s wife was Anna McMurtry (1768-1849), a daughter of Joseph and Susannah (Patton) McMurtry of Greene County.

The will of Jesse Webb (Jefferson County Will Book 4, pp. 21) gives a list of ten children, and two listed in the will are not found recorded in the Bible. Apparently the page with their names has been lost. However, their dates of birth can be secured from their tombstones: Sarah Webb was born July 17, 1799, and James Webb was born January 25, 1801. Sarah married Samuel Proffitt and they are buried in the Proffitt Cemetery at Chestnut Hill. James is buried in the Chestnut Hill Methodist Cemetery.


Jesse Webb was a soldier in the Revolution, as was his brother Joseph. Jesse draw a pension and so did John’s widow, Elizabeth, who happened to be a sister to Jesse’s wife, Anna. A lot of information can usually be gotten from the pension applications. Jesse Webb’ pension file number is S3501.

In the application he said that he was living in Greene County, NC now Tennessee, when he enlisted in the service in 1781 with Capt. Lusk and served in a NC regiment commanded by Colonel Middleton for ten months. During the time he marched across the Santee River to the Browns(?) Old Fields in SC. Webb fought at the Battle of Eulaw Springs under Generals Greene and Sumter. His army was marched back to Orangeburg SC Where “he was engaged in fighting Tories” until his term of enlistment was up. There are several of his female descendants who have qualified for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Jesse Webb lived at Chestnut Hill in the vicinity of Will Thornton Road. He and his wife and an infant child are buried on the place. Those graves are marked, but in 1975, the local DAR placed a veteran’s marker to Jesse Webb in the Chestnut Hill Methodist Cemetery. The marker notes that he was actually buried 8/4 mile from that cemetery.

Jesse Webb died March 25, 1848, age 82, and his wife Anna, died February 8, 1849, age 81. Their children were living when Jesse made his will in 1847 but by 1851, Henry, Thomas, and Susannah were deceased.

Most of the Cocke County Webbs descend from Joseph, who lived on upper Cosby. The Jefferson County Webbs are mainly descendants of James and Thomas. However, the daughters Sarah Proffitt, Elizabeth Large and Mary Shrader have lots of descendants here, too. Webb’s Creek in Sevier County is named for descendants of Jesse’s brother John, whose family in Sevier County in the vicinity of Forbidden Caverns.

Jesse Webb descendants will be especially grateful for these pages from the past.
