Berks County, Pennsylvania was formed on March 11, 1752 from parts of Chester County, Lancaster County, and Philadelphia County. Northwestern parts of the county became Northumberland County in 1772 and Schuylkill County in 1811.

He married Elizabeth Bates.

His children included:
Nathan Webb (1784, married Catherine Elizabeth Miller, daughter of John Miller) and
David Webb (1795).

David Webb signed the 1777 petition of men living on the north Holston River complaining about the division of Fincastle County. They felt the line was not equitable and the court house was too far away.

In 1780 David was at King's Mountain with his brothers, under Colonel Shelby.

In 1782 and David received a warrant for land in Sullivan County, Tennessee. At that time it was in North Carolina.

In 1786 David signed the Petition for Division of Sullivan County.
