14 August 1914

Sanilac Jeffersonian

Melvin West, son of Mr. and Mrs. R.A. West, whose severe illness we noted last week, died at about midnight Thursday night, after a long seige with menengitis. The little fellow was eight years old, the youngest of the family, and his death is a severe blow to his parents and brothers. The funeral took place Sunday afternoon from the home and the services were conducted by Dr. Sayers of Detroit. His companions in the group of Y.M.C.A. acted as pall beareres and the evidences of friendship for the little fellow were shown by the many floral offerings. Burial in the Croswell cemetery.
