Adair County News, Wednesday, February 7, 1900
Lee Webb, of color, who was perhaps one of the oldest women in the
State, died two miles from Columbia Thursday morning. She was between 110
and 120 years old. Her
exact age could not be arrived at, but it is known she was brought from
Virginia to this county in 1779.
Her sight was good as when young when she was taken sick.
(She doesn't appear on the 1870 Adair County census. In 1880 census,
she appears as Lee Ann Webb, born
1810 in Virginia.)
