Jasper Webb, born in Tennessee, married "Cathern" Malinda Henley at Monroe County, Tennessee. Fairview Cemetery where they are buried is just a few miles from where they lived in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, which is right on the border.
Jasper Webb served with the 80th Regiment Tennessee Volunteers, Co.K. Other records show Jasper as a Confederate with the Tennessee Calvary 4th Bn. (Branner's) Company B, and a 2nd Lt. in the 62nd mounted infantry, Compamy K, the same company his brother Newton Webb served in. He enlisted September 22, 1862 for a period of three years. In January 1863, Jasper had to give his resignation from the service because he was so ill. His papers from Vicksburg, written by J.C. Abernathy, Surgeon 80th Tenn. Volunteers say: "Camp near Vicksburg Jan 19/63. I certify that I have carefully examined the said Leut. Jasper Webb of Capt. Holcomb Co. (K) 80th Tenn. Vols. and find him incapable of performing any of the duties of his office because of coxalgia (?) Said officer has been unfit for duty for near two months having almost entirely lost the use of his left leg. I am of the opinion that said officer never will be able to discharge the duties of a soldier."
