I just need to hunt down Greenville  Webb :)
The only Greenville Webb I could find did not appear to have a son named Henry. However, it is possible his father was Greenville Webb of Caroll County, VA who was married to Martha Scott and his mother was not married at the time of his birth.
Thank you, I'll look into it. My grandmother had told me, and I thought it was just rumor or something, that her grandfather came to WV to hide from the law in VA because he killed someone. I'm wondering if Greenville was a made up name. I can't find anything on his wife, per Henry's death certificate, Margarette Baber or a Margarette Baker either.
If what your grandmother told you is true, it is possible that he changed his name and that any information he gave about his parents is false.
