Mrs. Webb was a member of the wealthy Vanderbilt family and Dr. Webb used her substantial fortune to promote his railroad and other businesses in the Adirondacks. The Webbs were, around 1893, the owners of the land that eventually became Seymour Point and later Penwood, Lots 40, 41, 42 and 43 within Herkimer County, Town of Webb.
