Albert Webster, a resident of Irasburg from birth to 1913, when he moved to Barton, died instantly Friday evening. He has been in his usual health and had the day before driven his car to Craftsbury with Comrades of the Civil War to visit another comrade, had returned home and eaten his evening meal as usual. He then went out to mow the lawn and was stricken with acute heart failure, falling forward onto the mower, dead.
Albert Webster was born in Irasburg December 14, 1844. At the age of 18 years he enlisted in Co. M., 11th Reg. Vt. Mil., and served until the close of the war. On February 16, 1869 he married Emily P. Bryant, who survives him, also five children as follows: Homer H. of Bennington, cashier of Bennington County National Bank, Arthur A., a teacher in Cincinnati, O., and proprietor of two summer camps for boys and girls, in Maine, William B. a druggist in Long Beach, Calif., Mary, wife of E.B. Tower of Barton, and Ray P., one of Barton's leading business men. Two children died, Alice at nine months, and George when 22 years old. He also leaves a brother S.W. Webster of Boston, and a sister, Mrs. Edwin Wright of Barton, besides 17 grandchildren.
Mr. Webster was a prosperous and influential farmer in Irasburg for many years, his farm near Coventry Village where he was active in affairs. He was a charter member of the G.A.R., and a member of the Congregational Church. He was a man of great physical endurance, a strong character for good sound judgment, generous, a fast friend, and a good neighbor, well read, and respected by a circle of friends which was county wide.
In the absence of his pastor, Rev. M.A. Turner officiated at the funeral, which was held from the house Monday afternoon, and the interment was in the Coventry cemetery. There was a large attendance and a large floral tribute. All the children except William of California were present. With the passing of Mr. Webster, there has gone a man, strong and true, whose posterity will fill a large place in the advancement of the world.
