Farmers Branch in Dallas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Webb Chapel Cemetery
Historic Texas Cemetery
Isaac B. (1802-1880) and Mary H. (1816-1887) Webb and their family came to this area of the Peters Colony in 1844. Within a year, the couple led in the formation of a Methodist Society, the first church organized in Dallas County. A log structure, known as Webb Chapel, that also served as the first school of this growing settlement, was built in 1846. The churchyard became a cemetery when the Webb's seven-year-old daughter, Alice, fell ill and died in 1847. The Webb family and their descendants are buried at this site that today is administered by the Webb Chapel Cemetery Association.
Webb Chapel Cemetery Association, on behalf of descendants of frontier families interred here, dedicated this marker on June 1, 2002. This dedication occurred at a reunion of those families held on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Isaac B. Webb.
Erected 2002 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 16180.)
