Asa Harrison (Steve) Webster (1892-1965 ) was the son of William Whitney Webster and Mary Elizabeth Scott. Asa Harrison was born (and died we think) in Greene Co., PA. He appears to have married twice:

Married first to Daisie ?? (1896--??) between 1910 and 1916. Asa Harrison and Daisie had two children: William (1916-??) and Mary J. (1920-??). Harrison, Daisie and the two children are listed in the 1920 census in Center Twp., Greene Co., PA. And the two children are listed in the 1930 census where Harrison is married to Evelyn Polen. I have been unable to identify Daisie's surname, her parents' names, how the marriage to Asa Harrison ended (death or divorce), or when and where Daisie died. Nor can I find reference to William or Mary J. in public records after 1930.


Married second to Evelyn Pearl Polen (1903-1990) in about 1924. Evelyn Pearl was the daughter of Robert Lee Moses Polen and Rachel Caroline Martin. Asa Harrison and Evelyn had as many as 10 children (with the first six below all born AFTER 1930):

1. Linda

2. Leora

3. Nancy

4. Lucy

5. Karen

6. Lynne


7. John Whitney, 1922 -?? (has a son, Raymond Webster) (Since John was born in 1922 and Harrison and Evelyn did not marry until 1924, who is the mother of John Whitney Webster?)

8. Helen Jean, 1927-2006 (Helen is listed in several published genealogies, but is NOT included in the 1930 census listing. She married Raymond Eugene Smith of IL and they both died in Fremont Co., WY). Is she actually a daughter of Harrison Webster and Evelyn Polen?

9. Samuel L., 1925-1985 (born in Greene Co., PA and died Licking Co., OH)

10. David (Butch), 1939-1998 (in Greene Co., PA)


Seeking information about this family as part of a larger effort to trace my wife's POLEN relatives.

Willing to share information.
