2.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1790 (Broderbund CD-311):
1790 Webb, Widow MA Suffolk Co. Weymouth Town p. 209
1790 Webb, Widow MA Suffolk Co. Weymouth p. 669
1790 Webb, Mrs. MA Suffolk Co. Boston Town p. 188
1790 Webb, Mrs. ??? MA Suffolk Co. Boston p. 44
I could find no Michael WEBB in Massachusetts.  I suspect these are two widows, not four, and that Broderbund got their records from two sources, hence the duplication (it is not unusual for different sources to have different pagination).  The only WEBBs in Danvers were Nathaniel and Patty, but Nathaniel could be his father (see LDS IGI record below). 

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312).  Please see my WARNING regarding use of this database (the numerical data have the genders switched). 
1800 Webb, Michael MA Essex Co. [town not given] p. 397 11110-2101000
These data should read:
21010-11110-00
which indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 9 or under 1790-1800 = Son C
= Son B
1 male 10-15 1784-1790 = Son A
1 male 26-44 1755-1774 = Michael
1 female 9 or under 1790-1800 = Daughter C
1 female 10-15 1784-1790 = Daughter B
1 female 16-25 1774-1784 = Daughter A
1 female 26-44 1755-1774 = Rebecca 
Michael's absence from the 1790 census raises the question of whether these are our subjects, but then, it is not so unusal to get skipped in the census.  Then again, if they married in August of 1784, it's a tad unlikely, though hardly impossible, that they had a child before the end of the year.  And if this is our couple, both the husband and wife are old enough to have had a prior marriage with children born before 1784.  There is also a Nathaniel in Essex Co.

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313):  Michael not found, but there is a Nathaniel (and a Nathaniel, Jr.) in Danvers.

5.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1820 (Broderbund CD-314):  Michael not found in Danvers, but there is a Nathaniel (and a Nathaniel, Jr.) in Danvers.

6.  1790-1870 Census Index (online at Ancestry.com):
1820 WEBB MICHAEL MA Essex Co. Salem, Northfield p. 76
1830 WEBB MICHAEL MA Essex Co. Salem p. 456
1830 WEBB MICHAEL JR. MA Essex Co. Salem p. 375
Hard to say whether this could be our subject...  WEBB is a very common name.

7.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service: International Genealogical Index (IGI).
Michael WEBB
Birth: 12 Jan 1757, Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts
Father: Nathaniel WEBB; Mother: Amy
Source: Woburn records of births, deaths, and marriages. Edward Francis Johnson, 1856-1922.
It's possible this is our subject, but again, WEBB is a common name.
