In last week's 52 Ancestors post, I introduced you to my maternal great-granduncle, Frank Summers Webster, who was one of the brothers of my great-grandfather, Watson (Frederick) Emory Webster, a.k.a. "The Traveling Dentist" here on my blog.
Today I'd like to introduce you to Frank and Frederick's paternal grandfather, and my maternal 3rd great-grandfather, Moses Augustine Webster.
|Moses Augustine Webster|
This is a picture of Moses that was found in a photo album that belonged to my 2nd great-grandfather, Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster. Ebenezer was Moses' oldest son. In an earlier 52 Ancestors post, I shared pictures of Ebenezer's photo album. If you'd like to see these pictures, click HERE.
Here's the page from Ebenezer's photo album that contained the photo of Moses.
I think it's so cool to see Ebenezer's handwriting on this page. He wrote, "My Father M A Webster."
Moses Augustine Webster was born on 25 September 1811 in Columbia, New York to Augustine Webster and Mary Tyler. He married Amanda Melvina Carlisle on 9 July 1835 in Meigs County, Ohio.1
Moses and Amanda were the parents of eight children:
- Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster (11 August 1838 – 6 May 1915) [my 2nd great-grandfather]
- Asbury Bateman Webster (20 October 1840 – 2 December 1849)
- Watson Emery Webster (27 May 1843 – 26 January 1882)
- George Washington Webster (8 September 1845 – 11 March 1927)
- Basil Marion Webster (22 January 1848 – 6 March 1919)
- Mary Irene (Irena) Webster (28 April 1850 – 11 February 1853)
- Albert Gallitan Byers Webster (26 September 1858 – 22 February 1862)
- Fred Lincoln Webster (28 October 1863 – 21 August 1877)
Thanks for reading!
