Bluford W. (Walter) Alberty, son of Mr. and Mrs. B.W. Alberty was born on March 26th 1892, and while quite young suffered with a stroke of infantile paralysis, from which he never fully recovered. Walter, as every one called and knew him, was an intelligent and friendly child, and although unable to run and play as other children, yet he enjoyed to the fullest all of life's blessings. He always remembered a face and was always ready to speak to his many acquaintances.
His life was lived near Westville where he was born and he cared for nothing better to attend some church and Sunday school, and while at home learned to play on the piano nearly every religious song that as commonly sung in this community. He died on Tuesday, April 30th at 8:30 a.m. and leaves to mourn him, his father and mother, three sisters and two brothers. His body was laid in its final resting place in the Alberty Chapel cemetery southeast of Westville Wednesday, after a simple funeral service at the Methodist church held by Rev. Wininger and attended by the many friends and relatives.
"Rest in peace, thou departed!
God's gift is not lost, and we
Knowing thy good virtues, are assured
That Heaven's Gates will be opened for thee."
