Polk County Observer, Tuesday, March 19, 1907, 2:1

It is with regret that we send in the notice of the death of Charley West, which occurred early Monday morning. Charley is the fifth son of Mr. and Mrs. West to die of consumption. It was only in February that he took the eighth grade examination in our school. Charley was a bright, studious boy and well liked by all. He had the best of care from living parents and sister, but from the first it was feared he would not live. His funeral took place from his home at 10 o’clock Tuesday morning and he was laid to rest beside two older brothers in the Brown cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. West have the sympathy of the entire neighborhood.
