ALBERT C. WEBB -Among the progressive men who have done much for the progress and advancement of Webb City, Missouri, is Albert C. Webb, who was born on a farm near Carl Junction, in Jasper county, Missouri, on September 9, 1877, a son of William and Eliza A. (Jameson) Webb, both of whom were pioneers in Jasper county.

Albert C. Webb is one of the educated young men who has used his knowledge in the upbuilding of, a large and successful business. After attendance upon the common schools of the county, he was sent to the Pierce City school, in Lawrence county, where he took a course of three years, and then entered the State University, at Columbia, Missouri, and continued there through the junior year.

After his return Mr. Webb engaged in zinc and lead mining and successfully followed that business for five years, but in 1900 became interested in his present line at that time he bought out the livery stock of B. F. Clayton, of Carterville, and continued there until his own buildings were completed. The building now occupied in Webb City is an imposing structure, three stories high, with dimensions sixty by one hundred feet, and the whole front is faced with buff brick. All modern devices and conveniences have been used to make this one of the most complete buildings of its kind in southwestern Missouri. The box stalls are unusually large, and it is what it pretends to be, a "home" for horses, as arrangements have been made for the care of sick animals by a veterinary surgeon. Mr. Webb takes a pardonable pride in his fine array of vehicles of every kind, and they would do credit to a much larger city. This building is an ornament to Webb City and was erected at a cost of fifteen thousand dollars. Mr. Webb is a fine horseman himself and one of the best judges of their good points in this locality. They respond to his affection, and few animals come under his. care that do not feel the magnetism of his presence.

Mr. Webb was married on December 9, 1896, to Miss Olive Stires, of Carl Junction, Missouri, a daughter of David Stires, one of the early settlers of the county. One son, Eugene V., has been born of this marriage. Mr. Webb is a member of several fraternal societies, these being the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Canton, the Knights of Pythias, the Elks, the Modern Woodmen of America and the Ancient Order of United Workmen; in all of which he is deservedly popular
