Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Landsman in the Union Navy. His citation reads "On board the USS Susquehanna during the assault on Fort Fisher, 15 January 1865. When enemy fire halted the attempt by his landing party to enter the fort and more than two-thirds of the men fell back along the open beach, Webster voluntarily remained with one of his wounded officers, under fire, until aid could be obtained to bring him to the rear."
