He died on 12 Feb 1899 in Wichita, Sedgewick County, Kansas and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Augusta, Kansas.

This article is from the "Wichita Eagle", January 14, 1912, Sunday Morning newspaper. This was written by Euodius "Odie" Webb. He was the son of Cyrus Webb and Eliza Cather. He was never married.
"Forty-one years ago this winter back in Taylor county, West Virginia, Cyrus Webb called his family about him. There were seven children in the family, and to each and every one of them was explained the good points, as Mr. Webb understood them, both of the then frontier Kansas and of Southern West Virginia. The reason for all this was that Captain Webb, after returning from the war, where he had fought four years to preserve the Union, had been considering the advisability of removing to some other place, where he could better provide for his rapidly growing young Americans. At that time the Sante Fe railway was building through Kansas. The East had been flooded with literature setting forth the possibilities of this new territory as a future agricultural kingdom. But Southern West Virginia also offered inducements for those who were not afraid to bump against the after-the-war drawbacks. On that winter day in 71,' Captain Webb explained the situation to his children. He pictured the advantages and the disadvantages of the two states as investigation had acquainted him with them. Then he put it to a vote, to decide the matter in favor of Kansas, and to Kansas Captain Webb came a few weeks later and took up the claim in Gypsum township. E. Webb, ex-county commissioner, ex-county treasurer of Sedgewick county, and in 1910 second in a big field of candidates for the Republican nomination for state treasurer, was one of the boys who gathered around his father's knee 41 years ago and voted to come to Kansas. Incidentally, the present attorney general of California was in that family group, too, and though he was but 6 years old then, he voted along with the majority of his brothers & sisters. "That is how I happened to come to Kansas." said Mr. Webb, when the question was put to him. "Why we voted for Kansas I do not know exactly, but I do know that one thing which enfluenced most of us was that father told us we could get on our ponies in Kansas and chase coyotes across the prairies until we could hit them over the head with clubs. I have lived in Kansas a good many years, but never chased but one coyote that way. I didn't get close enough to it to hit it over the head with a club either." A few weeks later the head of the Webb family came to Kansas. He first visited his friend, the late "Dick" Blue, in the eastern part of the state, and then took up a claim in what is now Gypsum township, about midway between Wichita and Augusta. He could have gotten closer to Wichita, but he like many others of that day, thought Augusta the future metropolis of the Southwest, because the land office was located there. A little later he sent for two of his sons, E. Webb and a younger brother, to come out and hold down the claim while he returned to Virginia for the rest of the family. It was in June that the now well known citizen of Sedgewick county and his brother got their first glimpse of Kansas prairies. They had been told get off the train at Strong City and to take the stage from Cottonwood Falls to Wichita. They did as directed, only to find that in the meantime the Sante Fe had been finished to Peabody, and that the stage started from that town instead of from Cottonwood Falls. It was their first insight into Western progress. They stayed over night at the Falls and the next day happened to run across the freighter who was going to Augusta. Rather than wait for their train. They took passage with him, and though it took they a couple of days, they finally reached the Butler county town. From Augusta they walked to the claim which their father had selected. It was a jaunt of ten miles, and it seemed many times that far to the lonesome youths who never before had been so far away from home. "I never will forget that walk," said Mr. Webb, as he told the story. "To us it seemed as if the whole United States must be land. You know we had been raised back there among the hills of West Virginia, where houses were not far apart, and where the country was pretty thickly settled. Here we followed a trail that was none too plain, and nothing could we see but grass. Occasionally there was a shanty, and away off along the Walnut river we could see a few trees, but they were but interruptions in a solid sea of waving grass." It is a long cry from that lonesome walk of two nearly homesick boys across the raw, unbroken prairie, to the present day of well fenced farms, with "a house on every quarter," but Mr. Webb declares that he never will forget it. Neither will he ever regret that he voted with the rest to come to Kansas. From that time until he was elected treasurer of Sedgewick county, he put in the usual hard licks on the farm. He went through it all, the ups and downs of the Kansas farmer, and came out with the rest, pretty well satisfied that he could have done a whole lot worse that to have come to the Jayhawker state. For years he engaged in the sheep business along with his farmer interests. He sold oats at 11 cents, hogs at 2 1/4 cents and wheat at 40 cents, but he never lost his faith in his adopted state. He still believes it to be the very best in the whole Union. Part of the time he taught school during the winter months. It took a lot of scheming in those days to make both ends meet, and the Webb family pulled together to that end. "Our first house was built of native lumber from along the walnut," he said. "It was but a shanty, but it was pretty good for those days. The next winter we hauled lumber from Newton to enlarge it." That is how E. Webb came to Kansas, and tells something of why he came. Why he stayed was because he liked it better the longer he made the state his home, and he never expects to leave it until he goes to answer that last long call that comes to all in due time.
