Myron Mansel Webster, was a New York State man, born in McGrawville, Jan. 18, 1836, where he received his early education. In youth he came west and studied law with H.B. McGinnis, at Galena, Ill., and was admitted to the bar at the district court in Allamakee, Iowa, in July 1857, and later to the supreme court of Iowa. After ten years of active practice in Allamakee, Mr. Webster moved to Prairie du Chien, arriving Nov. 1, 1867. He was soon after admitted to the bar of Crawford county, and to practice in the State and United States courts. He devoted himself studiously to his profession until his death in October, 1881. In professional life Mr. Webster was a pains-taking, energetic and conscientious attorney, and was one of the ablest and brightest lawyers ever connected with the Crawford county bar. Socially and in busines life he was a man of irreproachable character, and hence commanded the respect and esteem of all who knew him. At a meeting of the Crawford county bar, held for the purpose, soon after his decease, resolutions were passed embodying very flattering encomiums on his life and character. These were spread upon the court records and published in the local press.
