James Stewart Webb (better known as “Skeeter”) is owner and operator of Webb Motor Company. He is a native of Demopolis and is a partner in the firm of John C. Webb & Sons, Cotton Merchants.  He attended Sewanee University, is a member of Trinity Episcopal Church, and holds membership in various civic and fraternal organizations. He is married to the former, Miss Virginia Rainer of Selma, and they have two children—Elizabeth and Mem Stewart Webb.

Webb Motor Company was organized in 1948 as dealers for Willys and Kaiser automobiles. Later, the Buick franchise was taken on and now the company handles only the Buick automobiles.

The Home of the Webb Motor Company has been the location of other automobile dealers. So “The Place” is traditionally an automobile establishment.

You are invited to visit Webb Motor Company and look over the facilities, meet “The People”, and inspect “The Product”. Remember, it’s located at 207 South Cedar Street in Demopolis, so bring your family and friends to see us anytime!
