Daniel Webster, Prairie du Chien, was born in McGrawsville, New York, September 4, 1844. Coming west while young, his education was obtained at Galena, Illinois, and Wawkon (sic) Iowa. Choosing the practice of law for a profession, he studied in the law office of his brother, Myron Mansel, at Lansing, Iowa. Afterward, coming to Prairie du Chien to live, he was admitted to practice in Allmaker (sic) county, Iowa, and at Crawford county bar; practiced at Kasson, Minnesota, a short time, and in Allmaker (sic) county, Iowa, two or three years, and then returned to Prairie du Chien, when he entered into partnership with his brother, Myron Mansel Webster, but has been alone since the death of the latter in the fall of 1881.
