Webb is located two miles southeast of Sumner, and was founded about 1880. The first post
office was founded in 1880 and named Hood for one of the earlier settlers.
In 1882 Judge J.L. Webb operated the only store there and later the Hood
Masonic Lodge was built. There was one saloon at that time called the Razzle Dazzle.
In those days most of the groceries and necessities were brought to Hood
by flat bottom boat from Sharkey, being hauled down the river from Friars
Point. Cassidy Bayou was navigable then and was maintained by the
Government from Sharkey to Hood.
Cassidy Bayou was suppose to have a ghost which was said to have appeared
at the home of Boon Jenkins a farmer. Mr. Jenkins lived one mile north
of Sumner. It was said that each appearance was accompanied by weird
voices and shriek of a woman. People who followed the voices said it
led to the bayou, and in some instances to the Indian Mounds in the
vicinity. The mystery of Cassidy Bayou's Ghost has never been solved.
