Seeking information about my great grandfather James A. Webb who was born 1862 in PA. His father was John Webb a teamster born in Ross, OH around 1836.
His mother was Elisa Toops (originally Dubs) also of Ross, OH. The Dubs family came to PA from Affoltern, Switzerland in the 1700's. James Webb's siblings were: William, George, Thomas, Hester A., John and Charles.
James worked as a railroad engineer and married Carrie Anne Adams. Carrie was the daughter of Robert Fowler Adams and Adeline Kingsley of Butler, PA. She was one of seventeen children.
James and Carrie's children were: Clyde C. born 1894, Marie, born 1896, Hazel born and died 1898, Jennie Bonnie Lee (Bonnie) born 1899, James H. born 1903, Ruth born and died 1905. The children were all born in Lawrence PA. The family moved to Taft, CA in the 1910's.
Any information on the Toops and Webb families would be greatly appreciated.
