Harvey West

We deeply sympathize with Mr. and Mrs. Noah West, of Staves in the loss of their little son, Harvey.  He died Sunday evening Nov. 4th 1899.  He was a little over three years old and was quite a bright, sweet little boy.  He was loved and caressed by the entire community in which he lived, and his death is mourned, not only by his parents, but by a large number of people.  The remains were laid to rest in the Black grave yard, on the 5th in
the presence of one of the largest crowds ever assembled at that place.  The burial ceremony was conducted by Rev. S. Lee Shell.
