Obituary

Rev. Harvey Webster

Rev. Harvey Webster died at his home in Swanton January 6 at 11:30 after a lingering illness, although he had not been confined to his bed for a week. Rev. Mr. Webster was one of the oldest and most highly esteemed of his brethren in this state. He was born in Weston, June 5, 1826, and was therefore in his 73d year. He was ordained at Barre in 1840, and had been 50 years at work in the ministry. During the civil war, he was chaplain of the sixth Vermont. He was at headquarters with Gen. Grant when lee surrendered, and had preserved several relics of that momentous occasion, among them a steel pen used by Lee in signing the article of surrender.
