          Quincy Clark was born in the town of New Hudson, Allegany County, N. Y., May 26, 1851, and departed this life Dec. 4, 1927, at the home of his son, Harlie, a short distance from the place of his birth, having spent his entire life in the same section of his nativity.

          He was married August 15, 1868 to Lottie Welch and together they had traveled life’s pathway with its varied scenes of joy and sorrow for fifty-nine years, three months and nineteen days.

          To this union were born six children of whom five are still living Charlie, Mrs. Clara Weigle, Guy, Mrs. Rena McElheny and Harlie.

          Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Westfall are located in the heald building which they recently purchased.  They are remodeling it into a hotel and making extensive repairs.  The people of Rushford are glad to hear they are to have a hotel again wishing Mr. and Mrs. Westfall the best of success in their new venture.
