First Generation

1.     Jonathan WEBSTER was born on 24 Jul 1808 in Yorkshire, England. He died on 3 Jan 1879 in Elkland, Sullivan Co., PA. Jonathan came to the United States in 1833; he made friends with the woman he would later marry, Harriet Blakeley, who came on the same ship to Philadelphia, where they were married! Thereafter, they lived in White Deer Valley, before moving to Elkland in 1836. He was buried in Webster Family Cemetery, Elkland, Sullivan Co., PA.

Jonathan Webster was born in England, where he learned the weaver's trade. Coming to this country, he located at Philadelphia, where he worked at his trade for a short time. Being a skilled and successful workman, he soon obtained a more lucrative situation in a large woolen factory at White Deer Creek. By unceasing labor and close economy, he saved a considerable sum of money which he invested in land, which at that time was very cheap. He purchased 100 acres in Elkland township, where his son William now resides. In summer, by patience and great effort, he slowly cleared the timber from the land that he might cultivate the soil. Out of the logs he built a log house, where he and his wife lived in true pioneer fashion. In winter, he worked at his trade for Thomas Ingham at Monroeton. In this way by unceasing toil in both summer and winter he was soon able to build larger and more substantial buildings, the same now standing on the farm. In his house he put up a loom on which, during spare time, he wove cloth for his family, and also for his neighbors. He made a specialty of weaving handsome shawls, which were a source of wonder and delight to all his neighbors and friends; thus he was more prosperous than many in his vicinity and accumulated a nice property, the benefits of which he enjoyed to the day of his death, which occurred on the farm at the age of seventy-three. His religious life was based upon the doctrines of the Anglican Church. He was a Whig in politics and later a Republican. His wife died at the home of our subject in 1896, aged eighty-four years. Their children were: John J., George, now deceased, who served in the Union Army in the Rebellion; Ellen, deceased; William, of Elkland Township; Charles, who was killed in the War of the Rebellion; James, of Sugar Run; Elizabeth, now deceased; and Marsden of Bradford County.

Webster, Charles Pvt Co. K  141st P.V.

Mr. Webster was from Elkland Township, Sullivan County and had lived with his father, Jonathan. He was all of 18 years old when he volunteered for duty under Lieutenant Dunham. This took place August 16, 1862. Only eleven days later he was mustered for duty by Captain Sailor. The term of service was to be three years. While stationed at the Chain Bridge, September 1, 1862, he and Charles Smith took dinner at a Negros' home. During the winter of 1862, Charles tented with Joel Molyneux. About midnight of July 2, 1863 at the battle of Gettysburg, and following the horrific fight at the Peach Orchard, roll call was taken. Private Webster, who was lying on the ground, raised himself up on one elbow and said, “Here is Company K.” He was the only man left from Company K. Later in the war Private Webster was mortally wounded in the genitals at the Battle of the Wilderness, May 6, 1864 and subsequently died while in the hospital, at Washington D. C., June 25, 1864. He was reported to have never been absent from the company since the day of his muster.

Obituary appeared in the Sullivan Review dated November 22, 1922

 

http://genealogytrails.com/penn/sullivan/bios/w-bios.html

John J. Webster is one of the largest lumber dealers of Sullivan County and is practically a resident of Estella, Elkland Township, Sullivan County, Pa., where he owns a handsome residence, a large and well improved farm and other valuable property; he is temporarily located, however, in Forks Township. He is the eldest son of Jonathan and Harriet (Blakeley) Webster, and was born at White Deer Creek, Montour County, Pa., October 8, 1836. (White Deer Creek is actually in Union County, PA)

John J. Webster was brought to Elkland Township by his parents when he was six months old. There he was reared as a farmer and at the age of twenty-one bought eighty acres of the George Molyneux tract near what is now Estella, it being at that time an untouched wilderness. There he built a small boarding-house and kept a country tavern, at the same time commencing the work of clearing his farm. This venture was so successful that eighty acres more of the same tract was added to his farm. Being a man of energy and enterprise he was desirous of obtaining the most possible good from the natural resources of his land, so he built a saw-mill on his grounds and manufactured lumber from the timber in his own forest, also sawing for his neighbors who came from miles around bringing logs to his saw-mill. After years of toil and industry he succeeded in improving his farm to his own taste and now enjoys the honor and distinction of being one of the most prominent agriculturists in his section of the state. One of the noted features of this elegant farm is a fine apple orchard of 150 trees. Mr. Webster has given the care of this splendid farm of 160 acres to a tenant, for he is so busily engaged elsewhere that it is impossible for him to give his personal attention to farming; he realizes, however, that much more money can be made in the lumber business than in farming, consequently he is extensively engaged in lumbering on the large tracts of timber land owned by the Union Tanning Company in Forks township.

Mr. Webster has been twice married. His first wife was Jane Kaye, daughter of William Kaye of Elkland Township. She died about the age of twenty-five leaving four children: Carrie, who married Frank May and is the mother of seven children, Bertha, Millie, George, Lloyd, Merton, Dorothy, Lorine; Charles G., who married Ella Brown and has five children, George, John, Seth, Delia, and Blanche; Anna, who married A. F. Molyneux, and also has five children, Tina, Revival, Ada, Walter and Wetsel; and Walter, a carpenter and wagon-maker by trade. Mr. Webster’s [sic] second wife was Mrs. Catherine Campbell, daughter of Samuel Norton and widow of Henry Campbell. Mrs. Campbell had two children by her first husband, viz.: Jennie, who married George Morton * and bore him two children, Essie and Nellie; Irene, who married Lyman Caufer, and also had two children, Katie and Violet. Our subject and his second wife have been blessed with a family of five children, three sons and two daughters, namely, Merton, who married Rosa Brown, and had a family of seven children, Fanny, May, Helen, Frank and Frances, twins, and Georgie and George, also twins, now deceased; Nellie; and Harry. Few men many years older than our subject can boast of such a numerous family of children and grandchildren.

Mr. Webster is a leading spirit in the Methodist Church and has served as a member of the building committee ever since joining the church. Politically lie is a Republican, and has served in many township offices and one term as county commissioner. Socially he is past grand of Sullivan Lodge No. 522, I. O. O. F.; also a member and past president of the Elkland Grange.

During the course of his useful life he has been engaged in farming and stock raising. He has also been an active member of the Wesleyan Methodist church.
