Biography H. Daniel Webster
The following biography is written by Kathleen Bennewitz from her research.
Harry Daniel Webster, born on April 21, 1880, was the eldest of four children born to Nelson Mortimer Webster (1833-1892) and Barbara Kirschman (later Davidson; 1853-1941) in Bloomfield, Winneshiek County, Iowa, where his grandfather's family had moved by 1856 from New York state to purchase and manage a large farm. Around 1892, the sculptor's family moved to Rowena, SD; in December 1894 his father passed away, leaving responsibilities for the farm to his three sons and forcing them to leave school. His widow decided to move the family to Sioux Falls for the children’s education. (The family is distantly related to statesman Daniel Webster.)
