Harvey Webster was the son of Revolutionary War veteran Captain Jonathan & Lucy (Sterling) Webster. Early in life he was converted and felt that he was called to the ministry. He was prepared at Newbury Seminary and at the Concord Biblical Institute in NH. At age 22 he married Lucy M. Piper of Weston VT on 6 May 1848, the same year he commenced his public ministry. He served VT Methodist churches at Putney (1848), Reading (1852-53), St. Johnsbury (1857), Waitsfield (1860) and Randolph (1861). He mustered into the Civil War on 13 Nov 1864 as chaplain for the 6th VT Regiment which he served for 7 months. After the war it is known that Harvey Webster was in Essex (1870), West Berkshire (1873), Enosburg (1874), Barre (1880), Chelsea (1881-84), Williamstown & East Brookfield (1885), Waterbury Center (1887-1888) and Williamstown (1888). He then retired to his home in Swanton where he died. Source: Kenneth E. Lawson, Vermont Chaplains in the Civil War (2015), pp. 145-150.
