John Cecil West
Birth: Feb. 27, 1857
Salem Center
Steuben County
Indiana, USA
Death: Feb. 13, 1935
Garfield County
Oklahoma, USA

My great-great Grandpa. Son of William Henry West & Lucianna Shipe. Uncle Lon said John Cecil West and his cousin, John Shipe "Went to Fort Wayne and went to school and went to teaching."

Married Sarah Jane Reynolds, 1879 in Ellsworth Co., KS.
They were the parents of ten:
Gertie Blanche (my great Grandma)
Nora Belle (m John Talbot Pittman)
Lorenzo Cecil (m Ida M. ?)
Irl J. (m1 Stella Miller, m2 Lillie Irene Lively)
William Andy (m Eva Mae McIntire)
Raleigh D.(aka Rolla) (m Effie R. Scott)
Mabel Viola (m Elliott Emmons Scott)
Arlie Lavern (m Josephine Marion Damon)
Thomas R. (no further information known)
Jason (born & died August 1904)

Grandpa West had made the run for the Cherokee Strip and he stayed in Oklahoma and worked at the carpenter trade. During the winter months he taught school. Their first living quarters on the homestead was a sod house. After Grandma died in 1922, he married Eva M. (maiden name unknown). I do not know what ever happened to her.

Living, He loved me ♫ Dying, He saved me ♫ Buried, He carried my sins far away ♫ Rising, He justified freely forever ♫ One day He's coming ♫ Oh glorious day, oh glorious day!
