I am researching this West Family lineage and as you will see there is a William, John, Joseph and Thompson (Thomas?)in this family line. Maybe there is a connection. Please let me know.

Self-Cathy West Lane
Father-(Homer Richard)Robert Leo West b. 1934 d. 1969
G-Father-Robert Homer West b. 1912 d. 1958 Missouri
GG-Father-Richard Barton West b. 1872 d. 1942 Madison Co. MO
GGG-Father-Samuel Jefferson West b. 1849 d. 1917 Iron Co. MO
GGGG-Father-James West b. bet. 1806-1810? in Virginia or Tennessee d. after 1880 in Madison, Co. MO

James West married 1st wife Elizabeth (last name unknown) abt.1829 in Tennessee. They had four sons.
John West b. 1830 TN
James West b. 1832 TN
William West b. 1834 TN
Simon West b. 1836 TN

And then Elizabeth died abt. 1842 (possibly after having a child,Catherine who was born and died in 1842.

James West married his 2nd wife Rebecca Wilson abt. 1842 or 1843 in either Tennesse or Missouri after his first wife Elizabeth died abt. 1842. And James and Rebecca had 10 children in Madison County, Missouri.

Joseph Wilson West b. 1844
Mary E. West b. 1848
Samuel Jefferson West b. 1849 (THIS IS MY GR-GR-GRANDFATHER)
Richard J. West b. 1852

Delsey A. West b. 1856 (Twin)
Josephine Luese West b. 1861

The 1876 Madison Cty, Missouri census shows James listed as a widower, with children. Rebecca must of died before 1876.
