Herman Chauncey Webster
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 24, 1875
Death: Sep. 13, 1955

Son of Edwin Hermandis Webster and Sarah Ann Thomas. Herman was single all his life and did odd jobs. He lived with family often, especially sister Ethyl's family (at least from 1920 through 1930). Toward the end of his life, he spent some time with brother Clyde. Clyde's grandson Gene Webster recalls that Herman was very odd, and would get on the ground and hop at him, mimicking a frog. Gene was somewhat frightened of the old man, considering him crazy rather than funny.

His military registration card for World War II indicates he was "mentally defective". He was tall and slender with blue eyes and brown hair at age 42, and listed his job as "laborer" and his closest relative as Orland Webster, his brother. There, his name is spelled "Herman Chancy".

In fact, Herman died of chronic myocarditis due to interstitial nephritis, which in turn was due to arterio-sclerosis. After his death, family were given notices of inheritences. They were surprised that while it was not a big sum of money, he had accumulated enough wealth that those modest amounts nonetheless streched through a few generations -- even to Gene.
