Judge Westover who died in Wichita county, Kansas, October 31, 1893, was a conspicious character in Cloud county. He settled in Riley county in the spring of 1855, and was one of the first settlers. He came to Clyde in 1870, where he became one of her most distinguished citizens. He was at one time county attorney of Cloud county, but his special efforts were towards prohibition and female suffrage. Originally he was a Whig, then a Republican and lastly a third party Prohibitionist. He was a man of many enemies and is said to have taken advantage of Charles French, his step-son, whose guardian he was, taking from him something like nine hundred dollars, which caused the people of Clyde to entertain unpleasant recollections of him.
