|Reverend Ebenezer Tyler Webster|
This is a photo of Reverend Ebenezer Tyler Webster, my maternal 3rd great-granduncle. He was a brother of my 3rd great-grandfather, Moses Augustine Webster. Moses named his oldest son Ebenezer. That son was my 2nd great-grandfather, Ebenezer Perry Carlisle Webster, who served in the Civil War. Moses must have named his son Ebenezer after his brother. I think that's wonderful. I like seeing ancestors who named their children after family members.
Ebenezer Tyler Webster was born on 27 December 1795 in Columbia, New York to his parents Augustine Webster and Mary Tyler.
Ebenezer married Sarah Sophaniah Lane on 4 October 1824 in Franklin, St. Louis, Missouri. They were the parents of ten children. Sadly, only four of their children survived to adulthood.

- Verlinda M. Webster (1827-1894)
- Son Webster (1829-1830)
- Celena Jane Webster (1831-1835)
- Betsey Elvira Webster (1833-1835)
