Taylor Webster (October 1, 1800 – April 27, 1876) was a United States Representative from Ohio's 2nd congressional district.



Born in Pennsylvania, Webster moved with his parents to Ohio in 1806, where he received a limited schooling. He briefly attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He was editor and publisher of The Western Telegraph in Hamilton, Ohio, from 1828 to 1836. He served as clerk of the Ohio House of Representatives in 1829 and as a member of that body from 1831 to 1832.

Webster was elected as a Jacksonian to the Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth Congresses and as a Democrat to the Twenty-fifth Congress (March 4, 1833 – March 3, 1839). From 1842 to 1846, he was clerk of court of Butler County, Ohio. Thereafter he resumed his business pursuits.

In 1863, he relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana, to work in a clerical position and died there fourteen years later. He is interred at Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans.
