Louisa Webber, Widow of Civil War Vet, Dies
Aged Resident of City Died Late Sunday Afternoon
Mrs. Louisa V. Webber, 86, of 1413 East Van Trees street, died Sunday afternoon at 5:40 o'clock Sunday afternoon after a serious illness of two weeks, death being due to paralysis. Mrs. Webber had been in poor health for the past few months, but about two weeks ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis which left her in critical condition. The deceased was born in Daviess County on May 16, 1845, being a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley McClellan(d). She spent her entire life in the county. On February 23, 1864, she married Thomas J. Webber, who served as a corporal in Company G of the Indiana Infantry during the Civil War. Mr. Webber died several years ago. Ten children were born to the union of Mr. and Mrs. Webber, two preceding the mother in death. The eight survivors are Mrs. Clara Arvin of Washington, Stancil Webber of Glencoe, Oklahoma, Mason, Barton, Hilary and Millard Webber of Washington, Mrs. Adelia Fitzpatrick of Washington, and Mrs. Ola Cleaver of Zanesville, Ohio. There are no brothers or sisters. Mrs. Webber was a member of the Baptist Church and of the G. A. R. circle of the city. She was well and favorably known here and her friends were many. Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon at the First Baptist Church with Reverend Jesse L. Henderson in charge. Burial will be made in the Veale Creek Cemetery. James A. Gill will have charge of the funeral. The body will be taken to the church at 12 o'clock and will lie in state until the hour of the funeral, with her Sunday school class in charge during that time.
