Elijah Webster's Copy of the Pamphlet
"Considerations on the Measures Carrying on with Respect to the British Colonies in North America"
By Sir Matthew Robinson-Morris, 2nd Baron Rokeby
I was contacted in 2006 by Ken Stein from Berkeley, California. Ken had a copy of the above referenced book which had hand-written notations indicating it had belonged
to an Elijah Webster, and was given to Simeon Webster by his mother Abia Webster. A Google search led him to my website and the notations finally had a context. The pamphlet had belonged
to my ancestors. Elijah was married to Abia and they had a son Simeon. The daughter Molly also wrote her name on a page but I did not include that image.
