Newspaper funeral notice for Hayward Webb.
Mr. Hayward Webb, 46 years of age, died at his home in Minneha township Thursday morning, June 29, 1905 after a lingering and very painful illness of nearly eight months. He was a brother of Mr. E. Webb, county treasurer-elect, and was a citizen of Sedgewick county for thirty-four years. He left a wife and two children to mourn his untimely end, for until organic troubles attacked him last fall he was a man of physical perfection. At that time an operation was performed and while improved, the physicians had not much hope that he would survive a re-appearance of the disease. Mr. Webb was a farmer, and a successful one, for he had the twin good qualities of intelligence and industry. In his younger days in the county he was a school teacher, and at one time was principal of schools in Augusta. Mr. Webb was a good man, an honest man, a broad-minded, intelligent, cultured man. No better citizen has ever lived in the county of Sedgewick. He loved his family, was fair to his neighbors, had public spirit and a high regard for the Golden Rule. He will be mourned by every man who has ever known him. Mr. Webb was a thinking man and a reader. He knew some months ago he could not recover, and notwithstanding his great suffering, he accepted the inevitable with great philosophy and went hence with full confidence in the justice of God. Many people from Sedgewick county, friends and neighbors of the late Hayward Webb, were in attendance on his funeral, June 30th. Mr. & Mrs. T.F. Hall, Miss Cornelia Hall, Mr. & Mrs. J.O. Webb, and Mrs. Jennie Myers, all of Wichita, were here to attend the funeral of Hayward Webb. Wm Rees was down from Eldorado to attend the funeral of Hayward Webb. Mrs. Capt. Myler, of Howard, attended the last illness and funeral of her cousin, Hayward Webb.

! Memorial
At his home in Sedgewick county, on the evening of June 29, 1905 the dauntless soul of Hayward Webb returned to God who gave it, and on June 30th his body was laid to rest in Elmwood cemetery, Augusta. The funeral was conducted by Rev. W.F. Cole from the Free Baptist church. The flowers were many and beautiful, the music was appropriate, and solo, "Saved by Grace" sung by Mrs. Cole was especially appreciated by the sorrowing relatives.
Hayward Webb, a Virginian by birth, when a young man was for years a resident of Augusta, where as pupil, teacher or citizen, he proved himself a worthy capable, forceful character, a person of executive ability, a leader wherever you found him. He at one time served Butler county as Superintendent of Public Instruction, and later went to California, where for many years he was employed as teacher in High School. His health failing somewhat he was advised to abandon indoor work, accordingly returned, with his family, to Kansas, and settled on his farm, near his boyhood home, among his old friends in Sedgewick county. Here he engaged in farming and stock raising. He possessed indomitable energy and industry, and applied it in an intelligent, scientific way that could not fail of success. Last December he became ill and applied immediately for medical and surgical assistance. He survived a dangerous operation, and for a time seemed to improve, but upon reappearance of the disease, his physicians lost all hope. Everything possible was done for him, but he steadily grew worse. His suffuring was intense. He fully realized that he could not recover, but he was a philosopher, and met the inevitable with grace and dignity of the brave true man that he was, planning for and conforting his family, settling his business, and preparing his soul for eternity.
He was a broad minded, cultured man with unlimited capacity for friendship. He loved all humanity, his people, friends and neighbors in particular, and in return enjoyd the love and friendship of many. At the age of forty-six the simple, kindly, honest, honorable man departed this life. A wife, two children, his mother, four brothers, and two sisters survive him. He died in full faith in the justice, mercy and promises of God, surrounded by his devoted family, loving and beloved.

Hayward married Anna Murray COUNSIL, daughter of Oran COUNSIL and Amy Cordelia WILCOX, in 1885 in Virginia. Anna was born on 20 Oct 1861 in Bellfountaine, Iowa. She died on 20 Sep 1940 in Augusta, Butler County, Kansas and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Augusta, Kansas.

Mrs. Anna C. Webb Dies in Omaha on September 20, 1940. Anna Counsil Webb, eldest daughter of Oran and Amy Counsil was born in Belfontaine, Iowa, Oct. 20, 1861. In 1868 the family moved to northern Kansas. Indian disturbances forced them to return to Iowa. A few years later, they settled in Denton, Tex., moving after a short time to Kansas, where Anna Counsil became a teacher. In 1885, she married Hayward Webb, and they moved to California, where both engaged in teaching. Returning to Kansas in 1900 they settled in Sedgewick County, Kansas, where Mr. Webb passed away in 1905. Mrs. Webb returned to teaching and was employed in the Wichita schools for 15 years.

The heirs received something like fifteen or twenty thousand dollars for the lease on the farm. E. Webb, the oldest brother, remarked that U.S. got his political start by winning the election as county attorney of Plumas county, Cal., over his brother-in-law, a Democrat. Webb won about a hundred votes. The last time U.S. Webb ran for his office three political parties nominated him, Republican, Progressive and Democrat. He became a national figure when California was having its trouble about the Japanese exclusion act. Mr. Webb handled California's part in the international question.

From The National Encyclopedia:
Webb, Ulysses Sigel, lawyer, was born in Flemington, W.Va., Sept. 29, 1864, son of Cyrus and Eliza (Cather) Webb. His father was a farmer, Ulysses S. Webb attended high school in Augusta, Kan., and Fort Scott (Kan.) State Normal School. In 1885 he edited a weekly paper in Augusta and then taught school of two years in that place. he moved to California in 1888, settling in Quincy, and was admitted to the state bar in the following year. Elected district attorney of Plumas County in 1890, he continued in that post until September, 1902, when he resigned to accept an appointment by Henry T. Gage (q.v.), govenor, to fill an unexpired term as attorney general of the state of California. Thereafter he was elected to that office at the conclusion of every four-year term, serving until January, 1939. During his long career as attorney general Webb made rulings and was engaged in legal activities which brought him to national prominence. In 1922 he became concerned with the large numbers of Japanese settling in California and in two cases, Ozawa v. United States (260 U.S. 178) and United States v. Thind (261 U.S. 206) it was established that naturalization under the laws of the United States was limited to "free and white persons" and thus that the Japanese were not subject to naturalization. Later in a series of four cases he further successfully upheld the validity of the Alien Land Law of Califronia which restricted the ownership, use, and occupation of agricultural lands to aliens eligible to citizenship. He drafted a amendment to the Federal Immigration Law which prohibited the immigration of persons not eligible to citizenship and which was adopted in 1926. One of his notable achievements was in restoring lands to the citizens of the state. In People v. California Fish Co., et al. (166 Cal. 576) and People v. Southern Pacific Railroad Co. (166 Cal. 627) he obtained court decisions which ruled that tidelands were owned by the people of the state. He drafted an amendment to the California constitution which was adopted in 1928 and which modified the law of riparian rights and adopted the rule of reasonable use and reasonable methods of application. He also led a long legal struggle in the courts which resulted in the paying of more than $10,000,000 in back taxes by railroads operating in the state. In two cases , People v. Mooney (177 Cal. 642) and in re Mooney (10 Cal. (2d)1), the courts upheld the conviction of Thomas J. Mooney who was accused of murder for his complicity in the San Francisco Preparedness Parade boming in 1916. Webb handled the appeals to the Supreme Court of California in these cases. Following his retirement from public office he entered the private practice of law in San Francisco with his daughter, Mrs. Hester Webb Stevenson, and maintained this practice until close of his life. In addition he had a number of mining interests. Webb belonged to the Masonic order, BPOE, the Sutter Club of Sacremento, and the Commonwealth and Union League clubs of San Francisco. Politically he was a Republican. Hunting and fishing were his chief recreations. He was married in Quincy, Calif., Oct. 23, 1895, to Grace, daughter of John Daniel Goodwin of that place, a judge, and had three children: Hester Winifred, who married George H.
