There has been a lot of questions about Frederic Roy Webster. Frederic (Fred) was the son of Solomon Webster & Mary Wilson of Barkhamsted Lighthouse, Barhamsted, Litchfield County, MI. Fred moved to Michigan with his aunt & uncle, Isaac Elwell (b. 1812) & Thankful M. Wilson (b. 1812) after 1870. I have Fred in the 1870 Census living in Barkhamsted living with his parents, it says his age is 11 years old, however if we go by his stated birthday 1 April 1852 he would have been 18 years old. I have Isaac & Thankful Elwell in Plainfield, Kent County, MI in the 1870 census with Birton, Justine & Phoebe. My next sighting of Fred is his marriage date on 26 March 1878 in Shermantown, Allegan County, MI to Mary Blett-Price a widow with 3 young children. In many records her children go by the Webster surname, not the Price surname. Fred & his wife Mary Blett had 6 children who where all born in Michigan; Frank E. (b. 1878), Lena Belle (b. 1881), Fred Agusta (b. 1883), Bert Alvin (b. 1887), Nora Delle (b. 1889) & Stanley (b. 1892). It should be noted here that in 1880 Frank should have been about 2 years old & he was not in the census with his parents, however a child was with them named Charles that was born in 1879, I believe this is Frank as I can’t find a Charles in any other documents. As I mentioned before Mary was married before to Henry W. Price & they had 4 children – Nellie (b. 1870, d. 1871), Minnie (b. 1872, d. 1922), Almo Clark (b. 1874, d. 1935) aka: Elmer in some records & Byron Judson (b. 1876, d. 1963)
