    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, June 2, 1897 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - Died, at his home, May 28th, Mr. Alpheus H. West, after one short week of painful illness. Mr. West was born in the town of Western, Oneida County, in 1837. At the early age of seven years he was left motherless in a strange land, his father having moved to Wisconsin, where the mother died. Together with one brother and sister, his father brought his three children back to Oneida County. Years passed and Mr. West chose a companion, Miss Eliza Conant. When the war broke out Mr. West responded to the call, leaving wife and home to brave the tolls and hardships of a soldier's life. On returning he made this place his home, where he has nearly always resided. An honest, respected, useful life, an active member of the M. E. Church, his word was always reliable and his counsel good. His seat in the church was never vacant, unless very necessary, and at the close of the service was always found in the classroom. He had a large circle of relatives who mourned with the grief stricken wife and heartbroken son, who, together with his wife, reside at the desolate home. He also leaves a sister, Mrs. George Potter, of Orwell. Friends from Rome, Syracuse, Mannsville, Sandy Creek and Orwell were present to pay their last respects to their friend. Funeral services at the home May 30. Interment in the old primitive cemetery near Mexico, Rev. Idle officiated The choir consisted of Mr. J. Gothier Miss Kathleen McClellan and Miss Jennie Gothier.
