Is this the one you want I have more on his wife's lines; This is "THE" Daniel Webster you know.
764. Grace (Fletcher), b. about 1780; m. May 29, 1808, Hon. Daniel Webster, b. in Salisbury, N. H., Jan. 18, 1782, son of Ebenezer and Abigail
(Eastman) Webster. The name of Daniel Webster is one which the country can never let die, and the world will long echo his praise. He graduated
at Dartmouth College in 1801; read law with Hon. Thomas W. Thompson, of Concord, N.H., and afterwards with Hon. Christopher Gore, of
Boston; was admitted to the bar there in March, 1805; began practice at Boscawen, April, 1805; removed to Portsmouth in September, 1807; was
a representative in Congress from 1813 to 1817; removed to Boston in 1816; was again representative to Congress from 1823 to 1827; U. S.
senator from 1827 to 1839, and again from 1845 to 1850; was Secretary of State from 1841 to 1842, and again from 1850 to 1852. The splendid
arguments made by him in the case of the Knapps at Salem, and of Webster in Boston, and the inestimable service rendered his country in the
negotiation of the Ashburton Treaty, can never be forgotten. Dartmouth justly boasts of him as the most eminent of her sons, and the country
rejoices in him as unsurpassed among her statesmen. Mrs. Grace Webster, his wife, died in the city of New York, Jan. 21, 1828. He afterwards
married, at New York, Dec. 12, 1829, Caroline Bayard Le Roy, daughter of Herman Le Roy, of New York city.
He died at his adopted home in Marshfield, Mass., (*) Oct. 24, 1852, aged 70.
The children of Hon. Daniel and Grace (Fletcher) Webster were:
765. Grace Fletcher (Webster), b. in Portsmouth, N. H.; d. in Boston, January, 1817.
766. Daniel Fletcher (Webster), b. in Portsmouth, July 23, 1813.
He was extensively known as Fletcher Webster; was a colonel in the war against the rebellion, and fell at the head of his regiment in
the second and fiercely contested battle of Bull Run, Aug. 30, 1862.
767. Julia (Webster), b. in Boston; d. April 28, 1848.
768. Charles (Webster), b. in Boston; d. at two years old.
769. Edward (Webster), b. in Boston, July 20, 1820; graduated Dartmouth College, 1841; never married; was a major in the U. S.
army in the Mexican war, and died at St. Angel, Mexico; Jan. 23, 1848, aged 27.
