Cassius Monroe Webster

d. 13 Feb 1941 in Visalia, California
m. 21 Sept 1871 in Pike Co., IL to Annie Mary Howard
Cassius and Mary had 13 children, only about 5 living through adulthood. He is the 2nd great grandfather to Dad (Rick). Cassius worked for the California National Park Services and co-founded Crystal Cave in the Kings Canyon National Park. He and a co-worker were fishing on their day off and came upon a cave. As they investigated they found something truely remarkable.
Two summers ago Trent and I took the kids to go see the findings of their 4th great grandfather and it really is a neat place to visit. It's kind of fun to say "Hey, my grandfather discovered that," knowing hundreds of people go and visit.
