In the middle of the nineteenth century, news was circulated that the will of Wolfort Webber, said to be the grandson of King William "the Silent" of Holland (sic), and who had left his inheritance to the fifth generation, was to be opened. This precipitated an attempt by various American Webber families to trace their descent from Wolfort, and a representative was hired in Holland to investigate the claim. (This appears to be one of the scams that circulated such rumors in order to collect large investigators' fees from the unsuspecting families.)
As part of the attempt to make the connection between her grandfather, William Webber, a Revolutionary War soldier and early settler of Bradford County, Pennsylvania, and colonist Wolfort, Mrs. Harriet E. (Webber) Chamberlain, Worthy Lecturer of the Wisconsin State Grange, wrote from Ripon, Fond du Lac Co., Wis. to her aunt, Mrs. Emeline (Haswell) Webber in Bradford Co. requesting information on William. She also sent letters to the National Archives in Washington, D.C., concerning his pension file. As a result of these letters, a followup letter was sent to Mrs. Webber by Mrs. Chamberlain on July 5, 1879. This letter gave a detailed account of the life and descendants of this William Webber, as she knew them at that time. The text of this letter was copied by Susan Webber, a granddaughter of Mrs. Webber and this copy is still in the possession of the family. From this letter, family records, and other sources, it has been possible to construct an accurate account of the life and family of William Webber.
The first record that we have of William WEBBER is at his enlistment in the Continental Army at Brimfield, Hampden Co., Mass. in 1775. The WEBBERs of Brimfield and neighboring Holland were the descendants of John2 (John1) WEBBER of Beverly, Essex Co., Mass., and it is likely that William belonged to this family. Later pension and census records consistently indicate a date of birth of 1757/8, and the Church Records of Brimfield record the baptism of a William and sisters, Elizabeth and Eunice, children of William Webber, on 7 October 1757. These, however, represent a delayed baptisms for another William, born 1750, and two sisters born later, children of William3 (John2) WEBBER and his wife, Esther HAYNES, and the births of each are recorded previously in the Brimfield records. Additional study of the records indicate several similar duplications, and since there is no evidence of there being two adult William Webbers in Brimfield at the time, each naming their first three children William, Elizabeth, and Eunice, it is more reasonable to consider the 1757 baptisms as duplicate entries for the earlier births. (The William4 born in 1750 married Catherine MIGHALL in 1775, and after serving in the Revolution, removed to Ontario Co., NY and then to Northumberland Co., Pa.)
Returning to our subject, he may have been baptized in what became Holland, also known as South Brimfield. Unlike Brimfield, which has complete records for the period in question, (but no record of this William,) the Holland records are not available, and therefore we must look to other sources. There is only one other William Webber found in a contemporary record and not otherwise identifiable. Tucked into the file containing the will of William3 (John2) WEBBER is a document dated 1772, in which William WEBBER, aged 16 (and hence born 1756, close enough to the 1757/8 predicted from later documents to merit intense scrutiny) son of Lydia ELLENWOOD of Brimfield, chose her brother Thomas ELLENWOOD as guardian. This family is very confusing, but it is likely that William was actually son of a third sibling, Phebe ELLENWOOD, who had married Benjamin3 (John2) WEBBER in 1750, but died in 1756, the same year this William was born, and that William was then adopted by Lydia, unmarried sister of Phebe. The solution of this problem awaits further study, but in the absence of additional evidence, this is the most likely origin for William WEBBER of Bradford Co.
William WEBBER enlisted November 1775, at Brimfield, a private in Capt. Joseph Thompson's (1st) Co., Col. Thomas Nixon's (4th) Regt. of Massachusetts Continentals. He served in the battles of Harlem Heights, Trenton and Princeton and was discharged at Morristown, NJ, January 1777. He again enlisted April 1779, at Brimfield, in Capt. Williams' Co., Col. Grayton's Regt., doing service in 'the highlands near the Hudson River,' NY, and was discharged there February or March 1780. He enlisted a third time April 1780, and was discharge January 1781, having done teaming service for the Quartermaster General at West Point. His name appears on regimental returns and pay receipts dating from the first term of service.
He married first, ca. 1785/6, probably in or near Otis (then Loudon), Berkshire Co., Mass., Lois BALDWIN, daughter of Benjamin4 (John3,John2,John1) and Ruth (PORTER) BALDWIN, baptized 18 October 1767 at Goshen, Lebanon, Conn. Although I have not found a contemporary record of this marriage, it is proved by the will of her brother, Daniel BALDWIN of Washington, Pa., which names his nephews Barnabas and Daniel WEBBER, and two later accounts of the family of Benjamin BALDWIN. (Also, a wealth of circumstantial evidence (geography, nomenclature, etc.) makes this conclusion unavoidable.)
William went to Claverack, now Sheshequin, Bradford Co., Pa. in the fall of 1786, owning Lot No. 11, but sold the land to John Newell the following year, 1787. He then had three children baptized in Otis from February 1787 to May 1790. He was not living at home when the 1790 census was taken, but his family, in Otis, was recorded as 013 (one male under 16 and three females). He is said to have spent time near Bennington, Vermont, and had a daughter born in New York in 1794.
William next appears in the 1796 tax list, from the Upper Sugar Creek, Wysox District, then Luzerne, now Bradford Co., Pa. In 1798, he was taxed $160 for an 18 by 18 house and 150 acres of land in what was then a part of Ulster Township, his property bordering that of Isaac Swain and Andrew McKain. He was in the same area in 1800, when he appears in the census, 11010-32010. By 1809, he was in what became Columbia Twp., Bradford Co., when, after the birth of son, Ira, he is said to have sold his land there to Col. Latterlee (Samuel Satterlee, or a brother) and received other lands in payment, a part of which he later sold to Thomas Spence. He then removed to Troy, Bradford Co., where he and his wife joined the Burlington (now Troy) Baptist Church on 22 Apr.,and appearing there in the 1810 census, 21101-32101.He remained there until 1812, when he returned to Columbia. As William Webber of Smithfield, (formed from Ulster in 1809) he is recorded paying a mortgage of $98.80 for ninety eight and eight tenths acres of land, purchased from the estate of Henry Drinker of Philadelphia, and bordering on the lands of Isaac and Moses Wheeler, Silas Smith, Joseph Wills, and Tina Dunbar. In 1815, he sold this land to Amos Alexander for five hundred dollars, but remained in Columbia Twp.
William and his son William Jr. appear in the list of residents upon the formation of the county, on 24 Mar. 1812, and in the county's first election returns, on 13 Oct. 1812, in Smithfield. They appear in the first tax assessment for Columbia Twp. following its formation from Smithfield, which was taken in the spring of 1814. He became a member of the Columbia Baptist Church, and spent the remainder of this life in Columbia Twp. He applied for a military pension in 1818, under the Pension Act of that year, aged 60, and appeared in the 1820 census, 011201- 12011. He again filed with the pension office in 1822, aged 64, with wife aged 54, very feeble, three daughters, underage, and a son, aged 13, infirm. His wife Lois died in 1824, and he married second, 6 May 1825, Hannah (GRANT) WHEELER, born 1761, Mass., widow of Thomas WHEELER, died 14 Nov. 1814, also a Revolutionary War pensioner. (They were married in Holden, Mass., 24 Nov. 1785, with children born there: Naomi, 8 Jul. 1792; Cyrus, 17 Nov. 1794; Samuel, 21 Jan 1797; Thomas, 18 May 1799; Hannah, 23 Mar. 1801; and Thomas, 8 May 1803, and possibly others born elsewhere.)
William has not been definitively located in the 1830 census, but in the tax assessment records from that year he is found beside his son, Barney. He died 25 Feb. 1831, aged 73. The location of his grave is not known. His widow Hannah was baptized into Troy Baptist Church in 1839. In 1840 and 1850 she was living with Naomi Wheeler, born 1810, probably a daughter-in-law, and she filed with the pension office in 1852 from South Creek, Bradford Co. She was dismissed from the Troy church in 1855, and moved to Southport, Chemung Co., NY. There she was investigated in 1859 for attempting to acquire a second pension. The investigation revealed that it was John T. PAIGE, husband of a granddaughter, who had been using a power of attorney to take her pension, as well as attempt to collect a second one. He previously had been imprisoned in Pennsylvania for bigamy, and on discovering the investigation, he left with all of her money. She was described as being 99 years old, nearly deaf, and senile, and as not likely to live long. It is said that she probably was completely unaware of the proceedings, even of having granted the power of attorney. The last record of her is a letter from October of that year dealing with the reinitiation of her pension payments.
Although sources disagree as to the number and order of birth of the children of William and Lois, a satisfactory order can be derived using the order given in the 1879 letter and adjusting using the censuses. The only drawback of the order so derived is the juxtapositioning of daughters Louise and Lois. While it seems unlikely that there would be consecutive daughters named Louise and Lois (sometimes spelled Louis), census records seem to support the existence of a total of nine daughters, the ninth given the name Louise by the 1879 letter but not noted elsewhere. The simplest explanation is that the daughter called Louise in the letter, who died young and unmarried, but not until at least six years after the birth of the Lois, actually bore another name which has since been lost, the name in the letter resulting from confusion with her sister. The order here used can only be considered accurate with respect to those children with known birth or baptismal dates. It is now possible to proceed with an account of the descendants of William and Lois (BALDWIN) WEBBER.

3.William B WEBBER, born 1 May 1790, Otis. Died 4 July 1846, Harmony, Chautauqua Co., NY, having written his will the previous day. He was baptized into the Troy Baptist Church on 22 Sep. 1809, and is recorded as a single freeman in the first tax assessment of Columbia Twp. in 1814. He moved to Harmony shortly thereafter. He presumably joined a Baptist congregation there, having received a letter of commendation from the Troy Baptist Church in Feb, 1820, and he bought land in Harmony on 26 Oct. 1821 and 13 Mar. 1823. He was accepted into the Harmony Baptist Church 20 Jan. 1827. His wife, to whom he was married in 1819, was Eliza Ann TERRY, born Rutland, Vermont, 25 Jan. 1803, daughter of Elijah and Lorinda (PEMBER) TERRY, who had lived at Harmony from 1816, joining the Harmony Baptist Church on 30 Dec. 1837. She died 4 Dec. 1847. Both are buried at Blockville. William's estate, located just north of the town of Panama, was eventually sold by son ElijahC, who had bought out the interests of most of their other children. The Chamberlain letter gives them a child Levi, but he probably represents CorneliusC.

4.Lois B WEBBER, b. 1793, NY, m. ca. 1815, John BALDWIN, her second cousin, once removed, son of Jabez and Nancy (TILDEN) BALDWIN. She was baptized into the Troy Baptist Church 22 Sep. 1809, but does not again appear in the records. After their marriage they lived in New York until 1826, when they moved to Columbia Twp. There, due to poverty, their children were educated at the expense of the community. They were there until at least 1833, but by 1835, they had moved to Freedom, Cattaraugus Co., NY., where John owned 4 acres of land, one cow, and 5 pigs. John was still there in 1840, and he presumably died there. Lois was living with her sister SallyB PRESTON's family in 1850. She has not been located in 1860, but in 1870 was in Union Twp., Tioga Co. with her son Charles or Charleston Twp. with son William (she appears in both places in the census of that year).

Joseph and Betsey (RUSSELL) UTTER, and in that year is reported to have been part-owner of the first sawmill in Canoe Place, now Port Allegheny, Liberty Twp., McKean Co., PA., where he was still living in 1830. Between this date and 1833, when Daniel is again in Columbia Twp, he and his wife appear to have separated. He was in Union Twp., Branch Co. Mich. from 1834, and he m2. bef. 1838, Lucina B. _______, b. Windham Co., Vt. 1808. (She might be the Lucina BOND, daughter of Phineas and Hannah (RICE) BOND, born 5 Jul. 1808 at Wardsboro, Windham Co., Vt. This Lucina BOND married Horatio N. MUNROE, who received six Michigan land grants from 1837 through 1840. Unless the latter of these were posthumous, this identity would imply a divorce.) As Daniel Baldwin Webber, he was named in the will of his uncle Daniel Baldwin of Washington Co., Pa. in 1841. Lucina d. Feb. 1891, Petoskey, Emmet Co., Mich., and was bur. in Union City. Daniel's first wife, Emily, went to Wis. in 1841, married secondly, 19 Jun. 1842, Richmond, Walworth Co., Wis., Caleb KENDALL, and is found with him, as well as their children and her daughter HarrietC in Ceresco, Fond-du-Lac Co., Wis. in 1850, and next to her daughter Charlotte in Ripon Twp., Fond-du-Lac Co., in 1860, as a widow in 1870 with her son Henry KENDALL, and again with daughter CharlotteC in the city of Ripon in 1880.

She then followed a sister to Oregon, where she m. 25 Nov. 1873, Lane Co., Ore., James WARNICK, and died at Eugene, Oregon.
8.Percis B WEBBER, m. 1825, Heman Swift MATTSON (MATSON,MATTISON), b. 1 Nov. 1802, Pittsford, Vt., son of James and Amanda (BARNES) MATTSON of Pittsford, Vt., Columbia Twp., Pa., and Harmony, NY, and cousin of Colburn, William, and Lucinda PRESTON, spouses of SarahB, AlmiraB, and BarneyB WEBBER. Heman was a single freeman in the tax list of Columbia Twp. in 1825, but by December he appearently had married, for at that time he bought land in Harmony, Chautauqua Co., NY, having accompanied his father and family, and settled near his brother-in-law, WilliamB WEBBER, Jr. Percis joined the Harmony Baptist Church 26 Aug. 1826, on a letter of recommendation from the Columbia Baptist Church. Heman S. was baptized into the congregation 5 Jul. 1828. At some point (presumably by 1838), Persis having died, Heman remarried to Polly (? WELLMAN), b. 1805, Vt. Heman and wife (Polly?) requested letters of dismissal from the Harmony church 6 Feb. 1836, and moved to Meadville, Pa., and it was presumably there that his daughter Mary was born in 1838. The stay was short, however, and on 7 Apr. 1838, Heman and Polly were given a recommendation from the Meadville Baptist congregation, and returned to Harmony. By 1840, Heman was back in Harmony, and on 27 Sep. 1842, he entered the Chautauqua Co. Alms House with Polly and infant son Eli Chester, on account of Heman's blindness. They were discharged the following 13 Jul. On 1 Jan. 1848, they were readmitted to the Harmony Baptist Church, based on their 1838 letter from Meadville. In 1850, they were living with Adam(sic) WELLMAN, aged 78, perhaps Polly's father. In 1853, Heman moved to Hanover, Chautauqua Co., where he worked as a toll gate keeper. The same year is the date given in 1870 for when Heman became bedridden. By 1860,he was back in Harmony, where he remained until his death. Heman and Polly are recorded in the will of their son Stephen in 1873, Heman by name. However, Heman had died 18 Feb. 1872. In 1875, as well as 1880, his widow Polly was living with his daughter Annis(C) LADDS. It is not clear which wife was the mother of Heman's daughters, but there are two reasons to suppose that James was the only child of Percis. One account of the family shows her with only this child, while the large gap between his birth and that of the next identified child, Persis is indicative of a remarriage (it was not uncommon at the time to name a child after a deceased previous spouse. Also possible, but less likely, is that they are all progeny of Percis, with her death preceding the birth of Eli C.
