1848 - 1928

D. P. Webster, M.D., a prosperous physician in Pulaski County, MO., was born in the "Buckeye State" in 1848, the son of John T. and Mary A. (Pulliam) Webster, who were born in Virginia in 1822, and Kentucky in 1824, respectively. The former died in 1881, but the latter is still living. The father was one of the worthy tillers of the soil, and at an early day moved from his native State to Ohio, thence to Illinois in 1856. He was the father of six sons,whose names are as follows: Nathan W., Norman, George W., Moody J., Dr. D. P. and J.G. George Webster, the paternal grandfather, was born in Virginia, and died in 1846. He was a private in the War of 1812, a boot and shoe maker by trade, and at an early day moved from
Virginia to Ohio. His wife, whose maiden name was Nancy Erton, was born in Washington, D.C. The maternal grandparents, Nathan and Ann
(Galloway) Pulliam, were born in Kentucky in 1789 and 1791, and died in 1858 and 1860, respectively. Nathan was a minister in the
Christian Church, and moved from Kentucky to Ohio. Dr. D.P. Webster becamea resident of Illinois when eight years of age, and spent his early life in that State, receiving his education in the Pittsfield High School. After attaining a suitable age he began reading medicine under C.H. Doss, of Pittsfield, Ill., and from 1877 to 1880 was a student in the American Medical College at St. Louis, MO. He
graduated in the latter year, and entered upon the practice of his profession at Hulls, Ill., where he remained two years. After a
residence of two years in Greene County he located in Kansas, where he made his home until 1886, when he came to Dixon, MO., and here has since made his home and established a good and lucrative practice. In 1878 Miss Annie Giles, who was born in Illinois in 1857,
and is a daughter of Samuel and Mary (Crawford) Giles, became his wife, and is the mother of two children: Ethel and Zoe, who died in infancy. Dr. Webster is a Republican in his political views, and cast his first presidential vote for Abraham Lincoln in 1864. He is also a member of the Christian Church and the I.O.O.F. Mrs. Webster's father and mother were born in Tennessee and Pennsylvania, in 1830 and 1836, respectively. The latter died in 1884.
