This book covers six generations consisting of over 180 descendants extending across 200 years. The significant ancestors of Samuel and Deborah Webster are also traced back to the 1600s. Deborah, who was born in Massachusetts, carried lines from five Mayflower pilgrim families: Dr. Samuel Fuller, Capt. Myles Standish, John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, and Henry Samson. Samuel Webster, who was born in New Hampshire, was related to the distinguished politician, Daniel Webster. The fathers of both Samuel and Deborah were American Revolutionary War soldiers. The descendants of Samuel and Deborah were pioneers and Civil War veterans. They moved on to Indiana, Iowa, and Kansas. This exceptional book is presented in the Modified Register System and has been compiled mostly from primary source documents. It includes lots of interesting historical background and, when possible, extensive biographical sketches of some of the more active Webster descendants. Related people seeking membership in the Mayflower Society and the Daughters and Sons of the American Revolution, will benefit from the approved application references. Photos of early descendants are presented in the book. Also, maps showing relevant locations are included to assist in understanding the movements of the descendants. A fullname index is provided as well. The index lists women under their married names as well as their maiden names.
