Early settlers in Webster Parish

Today’s Echo of our Past will examine an interesting topic, the type of people who were the first settlers of what is today Webster Parish in the years between 1822 and 1843.

No one lived in “Webster Parish” until February 28, 1871, when the parish was created by the legislature. Prior to that date, parts of modern-day Webster were included in Bossier, Bienville, and Claiborne Parishes. Until 1843, the cutoff date I am using in this article, all of modern-day Webster Parish was part of old Claiborne Parish.
