This is an old thread, hopefully someone will receive this. I am also related to the West family. My mother's father is Raymond and mohter Edith. She was adopted by another family in Maine when she was just an infant (somewhere between the ages of 6 months to 2 yrs old).
I am very confused about guy West (her grandfather) wife. I found his birth certificate and it states her name is Chase, but all the othe rinformation I have found, including this, states that it was Clark(e). Are there any other documents that support the maiden name of Clark(e)?
Any information you can provide will be very helpful. I live in NH and not able to go to Maine at this time to research this.
Thank you for your help,
