Today in my database : Alexander Webb (b. August 20, 1559)

Today's featured relative in my database is my maternal 12th great-grandfather, Alexander Webb.

Alexander was born August 20, 1559 in Stratford, Warwickshire, England, the son of Alexander and Margaret (Arden) Webb. Alexander married Mary Wilson, daughter of Thomas Wilson. Mary was born in 1561 in Stratford, Warwickshire, England. Alexander died in Massachusetts, but I do not have a date of emigration or death.

I descend from Alexander and Mary's son, Richard, as follows :

Alexander Webb and Mary Wilson
Richard Webb and Grace Wilson
John Webb and Anna Bassett
Sarah Webb and Zechariah Field
John Field and Mary Bennett
Bennett Field and Elizabeth Spofford
Bethiah Field and Seth Pierce
Gordon Pierce and Thirsa Smalley
Francis S. Pierce and Rebecca Page
Edmund G. Pierce and Catherine Groenendyke
William Francis Pierce and Clara Pennisten
Edna Muriel Pierce and Virgil Lee Wright (my great-grandparents)

and follow their children:

Cheers to a long lost relative. You're not rich, are you? lol.
