I am also looking for information regarding William R. West, b. January 22, 1852, from Co. Kerry, Ireland. My great-uncle has his bible stating that he and 1 or 2 brothers emigrated to the US sometime in the 1870's. He married my g/g/grandmother, Mollie Lewis , in 1877 in Emporia, KS. they lived for awhile in Cherokee, KS before moving down to Sapulpa, OK. They had several children: Dora Ellen, Mont Vernon (my g/grandfather), Augusta May, John Culberson, Jennie Dott, William Edwin, Van Porter, and I think 1 or 2 more that died in infancy. William R. died , 12/21/1914 and is buried in the old Sapulpa cemetery. I was able to locate his grave about 2 years ago and it states that he came from Ireland. Mollie died December 18, 1929 and is buried beside him, she doesn't have a stone. I have been to Ireland trying to discover William's family and hometown and the only family that seems to mesh is the William West that married into the Neil family in 1850. Do any of my West's seem familiar to you? I would love to hear back from you.
