Clarence West

Toledo Chronicle
February 10, 1927

Clarence, 4-month-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse West, was found dead in bed by Mrs. West soon after 8 o'clock Wednesday morning and the cause of his death has not been determined. The baby was apparently well about 5 o'clock, and Mrs. West went about her work and didn't go to him again until after 8, when she found him dead. The baby had coughed some during the night, and that was the only sign of illness.

Funeral arrangements had not been made when the Chronicle went to press late Wednesday afternoon.
