Notes on William Morehouse Webster by Alice May Webster

Colaborador: toooldtohunt Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Father William Morehouse Webster From Surnames of the United Kindgdom in St. Leb. Webster English origin means weaver Webster, Webester, Webbester (origins female weaver) Adam 'le Webestere – Lane Fines AD 1332 Woollen Webbesters (van Woolenwebsteres) and weavers of lynnew – Piers Plowman 436-7 Grandfather was Fredrick Webster Born 1825 Pudsey York Eng. His father was Robert Webster, mother Nancy Morehouse Webesters worked in textile mills in Pudsey. Morehouse owned the mills. Owned a whole township and all the homes and property. Were very wealthy. Fredrick Webster was the fifth child and eldest son [of] Robert Webster and Nancy Morehouse. They had chosen a certain young lady for him, they wished him to marry. This was the custom of the time, but he refused, and came to America. He was still rather young because he married at 23. Nancy Morehouse had an Uncle, Isaac Morehouse, living at Vanderville Mills, N.J. The natural thing to do was call on his mother's Uncle who had a daughter Sarah. They fell in love and were married in 1848. They were first cousins, once removed so father was double relation to the Morehouse people. John Morehouse and Sarah Muff. Are his mothers great grandparents on his mothers side and his fathers 2nd great grandparents. Before his marriage, Fredrick Webster my grandfather was a resident of Glenham Dutchess Co., N.Y. His wife Sarah Morehouse was born 1829 at Vanderville Mills, N.J. My father William Morehouse Webster was born at Vanderville Mills Jan 29, 1850. His mother died when he was 6 weeks or 6 months old. His father died when he was three years old. Before he died he asked his cousin David Turner to care for his son. David Turner's mother was Mary Morehouse so he was double related to father. David Turner and wife Rose Collier had a large family about ten or twelve children. They were kind and treated him as their own. Father had very little formal schooling. He told of working in the tevtele[?] mills when very young. At times he worked until after dark. He got so tire and sleepy he would sit and dose. The man who worked near him would kick him on the shins to wake him up. His legs got black and blue and so sore he could hardly walk. He had to talk part of the way home alone after dark. On the way he had to pass an old mill that had been burned and was supposed to be haunted by his ghost of the watchman who lost his life in the fire. When father got near all the way home he worried about passing the old mill when he came near he would go on tip toe until he got even with the mill and then he would run fast as he could. In the winter time the snow would creek under his feet and make all sorts of weird noises. (I don't know just how young he started working in the mills, but he was only eleven when eh emigrated to Utah with the rest of the family.) Finally his father saw his legs bruised and sore and became very angry when he heard the story. He said why didn't you tell me. Father told him he was afraid he wouldn't like it because he fell asleep. He was eleven when they emigrated to Utah. They came with the John Murdock Co. and arrived in Utah Sept 12, 1861. they settled first in Deseret Milliard Co. Then went to Holden 1868. He did freighting from Salt Lake and worked in the mines in Nevada and gave his wages to his parents. He became engaged to a beautiful girl and went away to work to make a wedding stake. While he was away she thought it would be a joke to write and tell him that she had married another fellow. Father was deeply hurt and couldn't take it as a joke. So that was the end of that romance. After he worked away from home a great deal during this time his father came to him and talked to him and told him he wanted him to marry and have a family otherwise his name would die out in the world. Later his father and mother came to him. He married Margaret Mathias a little girl from Wales May 14, 1876. A year before St. George Temple was dedicated. The following year their first child was born. When she was a few months old they left Holden 1877 for Fremont Valley, a newly explored country in the eastern part of Piute Co. He with two other young couples, a foster brother and sister and companions got together and made the trip. It is a small valley in the tops of the mountains 7700 altitude with dry cold climate. Father always said if he had had an outfit of his own he would have turned around and went back the next morning. But he was stuck. Not much he could do except make the best of things. Being among the first settlers he chose a choice piece of land, built a cabin a bit bigger and better than the average. He was ambitious proud and put for the every effort for the betterment of his family. He helped organize the first Irrigation Co., and make canals, put in wires to regulate the amount of water to the people. He was official water master for years.

Father worked hard to give his family the greatest advantages he was capable of. His family was his whole life, meant all that was important to him. Though he gave all the honor and appreciation that [?] usually gives his parents and said he was treated as their own, he showed by his extreme appreciation of his own family that possibly he had at times felt sort of alone. Always striving for the better things of life applying school after supper every evening sat patiently helping us with our lessons. The well prepared lessons of the Webster youngsters were largely due to the diligent tutoring of father. Though he had little formal education, he was self educated through reading and study. He had a natural keen intellect. He read everything of a cultural nature he could get his hands on. He was well versed of all the scriptures of the church and he was an ardent student of the Bible. He supplemented this with Josephus a History of the Jews. He used it as a sort of commentary to the Bible and shared with the family many interesting high lights. Literative ancient and modern. He could converse intelligently. After [??] summer when we were freed from our lessons, we took read aloud some good book. An question that came up in school or church we would ask father.

My Grandmother, Rose Ellen Webster Berry, told me (Glenna Rose Fleming Jorgensen) a little about her Father. He love the Scripture and would set and read them in the evening. In the Fall when nearby Indians began their move to winter quarters, he always allowed them to camp on his land --- near Loa, Utah. He was friends with the old Chief, who rode up to Grandpa's ranch, ridding a good looking horse, the horse was all decked out with a fancy saddle adorned with shinny brads in plentiful array. As I remember it Grandma said the saddle came out of Mexico.
