"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk-cabbage."

Kenneth West was the only son of Frank West and Rose Elliott and the younger brother of Leslie West.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Kenneth was born in 1866 in Four Winds, Prince Edward Island, to Rose and Frank West. He was raised there along with his four years older sister Leslie.

"She worshipped little Kenneth - he was four years younger than her and he was a dear chap."
Miss Cornelia to Anne about Leslie[src]

In September 1872, Kenneth most likely attended Four Winds school.

DeathEdit

Kenneth died in 1874 when he was eight years old. He fell out of a loud of hay right as the waggon was going into the barn. The wheel ran over him and crushed him. Leslie saw it from the barn loft, jumped down, and held her dead brother's body.

Kenneth was buried in the graveyard over the harbour and his death affected Leslie and the rest of his family horribly. Two years later his father hung himself and they buried him next to Kenneth at Four Winds graveyard.
