I may have posed this question previously, but can't find it in my
"sent" mail. If I have, I apologize to those who have already seen it.
Maybe there is new information since then...
Re: the WEST family in Brown and Clermont counties.
Has a connection been found to a Thomas West b 19 Dec 1785 (possibly in
PA) and d 5 Apr 1878 in Brown Co, OH. who married Barbara GRAY about
1806-1810. I have found 2 sons for them: John West (b unknown) and Levi
West (b ca 1817 d 121 May 1835).
Thomas' father's name is unknown, but his mother was Ellen Jones, a
daughter of Jacob Jones who d 1815 in Clermont Co.
I am at a dead end concerning this WEST family, so any suggestions or
help would be appreciated.
