Some of the Descendants of Thomas and Sarah Webster of England and New Hampshire - Dale D. Webster. Thomas Webster was born in Ormesby, England, and came to the New World as a child. His wife, Sarah was born in New Hampshire. Their descendants started in New England and migrated west as the frontier opened to these pioneers. This book covers twelve generations consisting of 452 descendants extending across 400 years. This exceptional work is presented in the Modified Register System and has been compiled mostly from primary sources. It includes lots of interesting historical background and, when possible, extensive biographical sketches of some of the more prominent Webster descendents. The great U.S. Senator and Secretary of State, Daniel Webster, was a descendant. There are also five Mayflower Pilgrim family connections: Dr. Samuel Fuller, Capt. Myles Standish, John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, and Henry Samson. In addition, there are several veterans of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Names are indexed for easy reference; women are indexed by both their maiden and married names. There are eight photographs, some dating from the 1860s; and five maps. Dale Douglas Webster researched his genealogy for over twenty years. In addition, he hired professional researchers in New England. Heritage Books has published five of his books over the last seven years. The initial book was on the Webster line. This book is a significant expansion of that book as he discovered more descendants. He has also had articles published in the Mayflower Quarterly and the Journal of the Sons of the American Revolution. 2009, 5½x8½, paper, index, 204 pp. 101-W4927 ISBN: 0788449273
