  • Notes 
    • Entered ministry 1887 Quantico, MD

      Preached in Laurel & Delmar MD, and Princess Anne Counties.  Was preaching at the Methodist Church in Denton, MD when his wife Elizabeth died while giving birth. 

      Deal Island was originally Devil Island, but preachers made them rename it. - Unsure if this Mr. Webster had a role in the renaming. 

      Interesting that daughters have names from the Old Testament: including: Sara (wife of Abraham), Ruth (wife of Mahlon), and Esther (wife of Ahasuerus).

      .... Three major denominations -- Episcopalianism, Methodism and Presbyterianism -- would eventually trace their American roots right to Delaware or the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
