According to Little, "James Webster was admintted to citizenship in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, August 17, 1727, though it is not known from what part of New England he had previously come; he died about 1765. He married Isabel _______; children: John, born September 5, 1726; Mary, married George McLellan; James, married, September 22, Patience Webber; Thomas; William."

Savage lists a James Webster born 27 Aug. 1688. There is a Webster family in Cutter, but I don't see a James there.

Little tells of another Webster family on 2.895, apparently unrelated. [3, 4, 5]
