Edward H. Webster
Wester, Edward H., Buffalo, was born in that city, February 13, 1852 [died 1926], and is a son of Ellis and Charlotte W. Webster.

He was educated in the schools of his native city. His first business experience was in the employ of his father, in the coal business. In 1873 he was taken into the firm and it became E. Webster & Son.

He was married in November, 1879, to Mary E. Griffith, of Lyons, N. Y., and they now have two sons, Frank G. and Harold E., and one daughter, Charlotte Edith.

In 1891 the business was incorporated under the title of E. Webster, Son & Co., and now carries on a large wholesale and retail ice and coal business, with .their principal office at 201 Ellicott Square; they employ a large number of men at their different plants, in and out of the city.
