Webster, Wynn O. well-known farmer of the town of Enterprise, Oneida County, who served for seven years as chairman of the Enterprise town board of supervisors, was born in Shawano County, Wisconsin, March 11, 1883, son of George and Eliza (SHIPMAN) WEBSTER. The parents were of New York State ancestry, but were born and reared in Wisconsin; both are now deceased. Wynn O. WEBSTER was educated in the district schools of Waupaca County, and subsequently worked in the woods of northern Wisconsin for 13 years, starting as a lumberjack and advancing to the position of came foreman; the greater part of this period he spent in the employ of the Bundy Lumber Co., but he was also for some time in the employ of Brooks & Ross in Vilas County. In 1909 he came to Oneida County and purchased 40 acres in Section 27, town of Enterprise, later buying an additional 40 acres in the same section. This was all wild land when Mr. WEBSTER acquired it, and in building up his present farm from it he has accomplished a fine piece of work. He now has 25 acres under cultivation, and has equipped the place with an excellent set of buildings. He is carrying on general farming and dairying, and raises a large acreage of potatoes; his cattle are high grade Guernseys, and he has a pure-bred sire at the head of his herd. Mr. WEBSTER is a man of exceptional ability, and is respected throughout the community. Besides serving in the office of chairman of his town board, as previously mentioned, he was town clerk for two years and assessor for one year. His fraternal affiliations are with the Eagles, and in religion he and his family are of the Lutheran faith. Mr. WEBSTER was married at Enterprise, Wis., March 30, 1909, to Miss Margaret MISTLEY, and Mr. and Mrs. WEBSTER have five children: Bernice, Donald, Janet, Morris, and Gladys.
