|Basil Marion Webster|
Last week, I introduced you to George Washington Webster, who was an uncle 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 another of Frederick's uncles, Basil Marion Webster.
Basil was born on 22 January 1848 in Racine, Meigs, Ohio to his parents Moses Augustine Webster and Amanda Melvina Carlisle.
As I mentioned in last week's post about George Washington Webster, my great-grandfather, Frederick, apparently lived with three of his paternal uncles at some time during his life. Basil Marion Webster was one of these uncles that Frederick lived with.1
Basil married Kittie B. Burnett, daughter of Isaac G. Burnett and Rebecca B. Bryant, on 15 July 1869 in Blairstown, Benton, Iowa.
Basil and Kittie were the parents of two children.
- Carl Gordon Webster (1870-1871)
- Nellie Webster (1872-1960)
Basil lived most of his life in Iowa. He passed away on 6 March 1919 in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, Iowa at 71 years of age. He was buried in Walnut Hill Cemetery in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Thanks for reading!
