Thomas William Webb was born at Hadman, England, October 19, 1864. He was the oldest of a family of ten children born to William and Sophie Webb, all but one of whom are still living. The family came to America in 1870 and settled at once at Monroe in Jasper County, Iowa. After a twelve year residence there they moved to a farm near Lytton, in Calhoun County. On February 2, 1898 he was married to Miss Effie Wells. Their family consisted of three children, all of whom survive their father. They are Roy E. Webb of Chicago. Mrs. Beatrice Crowl and Forrest R. Webb of Sac City. Mrs. Webb passed away June 8, 1928. During the greater part of his married life Mr. Webb resided on a farm in Ida County, near Galva. In January 1925 he retired from the farm and settled in Sac City which place has since been his home. His health has been infirm for several years. However, he was until the last few months when he experienced a marked decline, able to be about and attend to his affairs generally. On July 28 he repaired to Rochester, Minn., seeking relief from his several ailments. He passed through one operation and was looking forward toward another, but such was his physical debility that he failed to rally as he had hoped to do, and passed away Friday morning, September 5, at the age of 66 years. He became a member of the Methodist church at Cedar in his early life. Later he was associated with the church at Silver Creek. He served there as Sunday school superintendent for some years and also as a member of the official board. On retiring to Sac City he became an official member of that church also. He was a man of good business ability and handled his affairs with discretion and success. For years he stood high in the councils of the Republican Party in Ida County. He was a devoted parent and a good provider for his family. Outside of his family his strongest attachment was to the church to which he belonged.
