William G. West, 1850-1913
William G. West was born in Sandusky, Ohio, in 1850, to William T. West and his wife the former Lydia Mahala Todd. For several years, William G. West helped his father manage the West House hotel, which had been built in Sandusky in the 1850s. By 1910, William G. West was listed in the U.S. Census in Prince George County, with his wife Cora. His occupation was farmer at that time. An article in the Norwalk Reflector of April 18, 1913, reported that William G. West had died at his country home in Virginia. His remains were returned to Sandusky, Ohio, for burial in the family lot at Oakland Cemetery. You can read much more about the West family in the Encyclopedia of Massachusetts available at the Internet Archive.
