The Ringgold Record, 1880
NOTICE of DEATH.
Last week Marshall WEST, one of our most promising young men, departed this life. He had
been suffering with typhoid fever for some time. He was attacked by pneumonia of the lungs.
His friends and the attending physician thought he was getting better when he was seized
by a violent attack of coughing which ended his life. He was honest, of industrious,
frugal habits and a gentleman in every sense of the word. He was to have been married at
Christmas, but fate willed otherwise, - "death loves a shining mark."
NOTE: Marshall D. WEST was born in 1850, and died at the age of 21 on November 20, 1880 with
interment at Benton Cemetery, Benton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
