For Jonathan Webb 1675-1744 mentioned in this query, his profile is in WT; his list of descendants does not include William Riley Webb

There is no William Riley Webb 1818 - 1884 indexed on WT; there is a William Riley Webb born about 1818 and died 1874 of Jackson, Tennessee; he has no ancestors on his profile

Insofar as the contents of WT and its profiles it does not appear that the two men connect

For those who are curious how this question might arise - at FamilyTreeDNAs Webb Family study, a descendant of Jonathan Webb and a descendant of William Riley Webb are genetic distance 4 apart from each other on a Y-37 STR test. The project administrator has grouped both of them under the heading of Jonathan Webb; however, the Webb Project has no information on how they might be related. A genetic distance of 4 suggests that the common ancestor of these two men (and of the Jonathan Webb group as a whole) may have been somewhat before the genealogical time frame (that is, late medieval rather than early modern).
