Albert S. Westlake, son of John S. and Louisa (Hancock) Westlake, was born July 10, 1837 at Skaneateles, NY. John S. Westlake and wife were born near Bristol, England, and in 1837 came to the United States and settled at Skaneateles. The same year they moved to Venice, Cayuga County, where they resided until 1848, when they moved to Perry, Wyoming County, where they now reside. They had seven children, viz.: a son who was lost at sea; Albert S.; Alfred S., a leading merchant in Marquette, MI; Mary Anna, who resides with her parents; Elizabeth L. Washburn, who, with her husband, died in Cairo, MI, and left two sons, John and Fred; Priscilla M. (Mrs. Fiske), of Rochester; and Lucy Chapin, of Cairo, MI, whose husband was an editor. John S. Westlake was a merchant tailor and leading member of the Baptist Church, in which he always lead the choir, and was one of the deacons for many years. His uncle, William Westlake, was a prominent minister in England, where he built his own church, in which he preached, asking no assistance from the public. The mother of Albert S. was a lineal descendant of the John Hancock family. Albert S. received his education in the common schools and Perry Academy. At the age of 18 he went to Mount Vernon, IA, and spent three years with an uncle, Dr. Scranton, of Perry, and in 1862 came to Le Roy, where he has since successfully practiced his profession. His social and genial qualities, for which he is distinguished, have endeared him to all who know him. He married, November 29, 1866, Marietta, daughter of Francis and Caroline (Woodard) Fordham, who were born in Vermont, and had eight children. Francis Fordham was a son of Silas. They were among the very earliest settlers of Genesee County, settling four miles north of Le Roy prior to the War of 1812. Dr. and Mrs. Westlake have one child, Caroline Louise. Mrs. Westlake and daughter are members of the Presbyterian Church. (Gazetteer Biographical Record - Genesee County, New York 1788-1890; by F. W. Beers, 1890)
