Looking for information on my great-grandfather. I have an obituary notice but little

ANDREW JACKSON WEBB, born 29 October 1840 and died 26 September 1924. He was "an old
Civil war veteran" and "he fired Lee's last cannon probably the last shot fired
in the Civil war." "He was buried in the Glen Ferris Cemetary(WV)."
"He was a native of Virginia"(have heard possibly Free Union in Albermarle
County or Fork Union in Fluvanna County). "He came to Fayette County,WV with the
Imbodens"(I know Imboden was somehow involved in land sales and coal exploration
after the Civil War). "He resided between Gauley Bridge and Glen Ferris, WV." He
was survived by his wife MARTHA WASHINGTON PHELPS and children(have most of this info).
Being in Atlanta, I have trouble getting local area info. Planning a trip in the near

it's located in Fayette County. Is that so? Is there someone who could help me determine
if Lewis Edwards was born there in 1774?

and Margaret McGRAW of Greenbrier County. He is first listed in 1796 tax lists with

the vicinity. The known children of Martin and Margaret McGRAW, i.e. Thomas McGREW, Martin
McGRAW Jr., and Mary Ann McGRAW WOOD, were residents of Fayette County from ca. 1820
(Nicholas County) to ca. 1838 at Big Creek n.k.a. Chimney Corner. Am trying to determine
