    Webster Wiggins Moses was born 9 October 1838, in Wellington, Maine [some sources say Maine, Illinois, presumably Maine Township, Cook County], to Benjamin Shepherd Moses (1810 – ?) and Sarah Herring. He had a brother, Leonard. In 1850 his family was living in Monson, Maine, but seven years later they were in Steele, Minnesota. During the Civil War he enlisted in Company D of the 7th Kansas Cavalry Regiment on 18 August 1861, was promoted to corporal on 3 November 1861 and to sergeant on 22 February 1862, and was injured in service. He married Nancy Mowry (1846 – 1942) at the age of 26 on 19 March 1865 at the Wesleyan Methodist parsonage in West Bureau (present Bureau) or Wyanet, Illinois. They had seven children: Edwin Ralph (1866 – 1866), Eugene Wilfred (1867 – 1942), Annella Lois (1869 – 1880), Jessie Mae (1875 – 1936), Robert Shepherd (1878 – 1880), Webster Lloyd (1881 – 1942), and Francis Willard (1890 – 1942). Between 1870 and 1880, the family moved to Springdale Township, Redwood County, Minnesota, where he farmed; they remained there the rest of his life. He died on 17 April 1912 at the age of 73 in Le Sueur, Minnesota, and is buried in Tracy, Minnesota.
