RE: West family
Ooops missed this one Tina, sorry I don't get on here too often. :-)

You and I are 1st cousins 1x removed. My Grandmother Minnie and your Father Gar were brother and sister. Minnie was the oldest daughter of David and Melinda Nichols West. Gar was the next to the youngest son of David and Melinda. There were 16 years difference between their age. :-)

David West and Melinda Nichols West

I sent this information to your email on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 6:10 PM. You replied back. Did it get lost? Just let me know. I can resend if you need me to.

Nathaniel West, David Wests father came from Jonesville, Surry County, North Carolina. That is where David was born on 6 July 1828.

If you have a copy of the Volume 1 Heritage of Cherokee County. My mother wrote a bio for The West Family in 1987. It's story #765 written by Blanche Pullium Johnson. It goes all the way back to Jonathan West who came from Maryland down to Rowan County, NC between 1763 and 1777. If you need me to send that to you let me know I have transcribed it in my genealogy. Hugs, Denise

David West 1828-1907
I just know that he's my 2nd great grandfather Tina, I wasn't born when he was living, if my Mother were around she could tell you stories but she passed away in 1999 and all I have is her notes and research on him. He's on the 1870 Census in Valley Town, 1900 Census in Andrews. He served in the 10th Cavalry for the Union in Tennessee and was promoted to corporal of Co. H, 10 Reg't Tennessee Cavalry 1 Feb 1865 at the age of 36.

RE: David West
Hi Tina. Thank you for your message, but I am afraid I cannot help you. I leave tokens or flowers on a lot of graves that I am not related to. I have a soft spot for veterans and babies. I also like to make sure that everyone has at least something on their memorial. If I were you, I would contact either the person maintaining that page or the original creator. I am betting that they know a lot more about your family that I ever could. Good luck on your search, I hope you find what you are looking for. Best wishes, Vickie
