L.G. Webb
Mendon Twp.

L. G. Webb, City Marshal and Street Commissioner, McGregor, was born in Medina, Ohio, Aug. 29, 1834, and was a son of John R. and Catherine Webb, nee Stahl, natives of Pennsylvania. L. G. was the fifth son of twelve children born of this union, and, when he was one year old his parents moved to La Porte, Ind., thence to Ogle County, Ill., and two years later to Stevenson County. They resided there until 1854, when they settled in Benton County, Iowa, where the father still resides in the eighty-eighth year of his age, a hale, hearty old gentleman. L.G. Webb became a resident of McGregor, Iowa, in 1860, and followed his trade, that of a brick mason, here until 1877, when he was elected to his present offices, those of City Marshal and Street Commissioner, and in both positions shows himself to be a faithful and efficient officer. On Nov. 6, 1856, he was married to Anna McCauley, of Mansfield, Ohio. Her parents were William McCauley and Sarah, nee Douglass. Of eight children born of this union six are living--Ralph E. (an employe in the Chicago office of the M.S. & L. S. R. R.), Ruth, G. Dayton, Ray, John, and Gertrude. Mr. Webb is a member of Itasca Lodge, I.O.O.F., No. 111, and politically he is a Republican.
