Feb 23 1924 Adirondack News

St. Regis Falls people have again been called upon to mourn for the passing on of one of their number who was loved and respected by all who knew him. Wesley Lang, who had been ill for about year, died at his home Tues, aged 25 years. Wesley John Lang, youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Lang, was born in St Regis Falls, Apr 18, 1898 and the whole of his short life was spent here. He received his education In the schools of our village and at an early age began work In the New York & Ottawa Railroad station here, which position he creditably filled until forced to relinquish It by ill health. Genial, courteous, and obliging, he came to be loved and respected by the people who came in daily contact with him. His father died six years ago and from that time Wesley became the mainstay of the home. His mother died Jan 3,1923, and at that time and for some time previous Wesley had what was thought to be a stubborn cold. Shortly after the death of his mother he became worse and was forced to give up work for a week or so, but with indomitable grit and courage went back to work as soon as he was on his feet again. However, In April he was again compelled to cease work and went to Ray Brook Sanitarium for rest and treatment, which his friends thought and hoped would be all that was needed to restore him to good health. He grew gradually worse until in the autumn he was brought to his home here and his sister, Miss Nellie, who was employed In the Springfield National Bank at Springfleld, Mass., gave up her position and came home to care for him. She has given him tender, loving, care and everything was done that could be done by relatives and friends to keep him cheery and comfortable. Through, the whole time he was ever hopeful he would recover. Wesley was a fine young man, a regular attendant at the M.E. church, a member of the Sunday school and Epworth League, being president of the League at the time he went to ray Brook. He was a member of the local order of Maccabees. Although he was not permitted to remain long on this earth, his life was well spent and he has now gone to his reward. He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Oscar McNeil, and Miss Nellie Lang, and two brothers, George, of Conifer and Fred, of this village. His funeral was largely attended Thursday afternoon from the M.E. church, Kev. Joseph Lobb officiating. Burial In Forest Cemetery
