Samuel Webb was born Jun 25, 1874 in Mercer Co., PA. His parents were James and Mary Ann Rowe Webb from Cornwall, England. Samuel was killed in an accident not far from the church when he was cranking his tractor on Feb 27, 1923. They lived on the Joseph Newton Buzza farm at the time this photo was taken. Joseph Newton Buzza raised Samuel and his brother George after their mother Mary Ann died in 1878. Joseph Newton Buzza was married to Samuel's Aunt Elizabeth Jane Webb.
