James Webb was born in Orange, Orange Co., VA; went to Henry Co., KY; and in 1832 came to Indiana and entered the land this cemetery is on. He owned 4000 acres of land in Indiana.
James married his first wife in Henry Co., KY, on May 17, 1810. Went back to Henry Co., KY, in 1842 and married his second wife on Nov. 16th of that year and brought her back to Indiana.
Mr. Webb at one time owned the ground that Union Station is on.
See the genealogy written on the Webb family by Mrs. Frances V. Webb; also see old Bible records of Wm. Webb, father of old James.
