May I introduce you to Watson Emery Webster.
Watson was born on May 27, 1843 in Racine, Meigs, Ohio. He was the third of eight children born to Moses Augustine Webster and Amanda Melvina Carlisle.
Watson was a Civil War veteran, like his brother Ebenezer. In fact, they both served in Co. E.,74th Illinois Infantry together.
On March 3, 1864 in North Grove, Ogle, Illinois Watson married Malinda R. Eavey, daughter of Isaac D. Eavey and Caroline T. Hammond. Watson and Malinda were the parents of two girls:
- Carrie Estelle Webster (1865-1944)
- Mertie Webster (1869-1885)
I will be sharing more about Watson Emery Webster's life in future posts.
Thanks for reading!
