There was two Vandiver girls that married Westmoreland men from that area.
Mouring Adeline Vandiver (1855-1943) married Joseph Benjamin Westmorland.
Lillie Vandiver (1866-1961) married George Bartow Westmoreland. Lillie had a brother named Fernando Vandiver and a daughter Edna b 1884. Do either of these appear to fit your family?

According to the information I have Joseph William Vandiver (born 1888) married Florence Elizabeth Holloway. He was the son of James Deloney Vandiver (1867-1941) and Nancy Jane Ledbetter (1865-1941). That couple is said to be buried at Sandy Cross Baptist Church Cemetery in Taliaferro County, Georgia. James was the son of George C. Vandiver (1845 - 1927) and Emaline (1842-1883). They are buried at Oconee Baptist Church Cemetery in Jackson County, Georgia. George served in the Confederate Army in Company G of the 1th Georgia Calvary. He was the son of James H. Vandiver (1815-1873) and Catherine Brock (1812-1892). They are buried at Oconee Baptist. James served as Judge of the Superior Court in Jackson County. James was the son of Hollingsworth Vandiver, Jr. (1774 - 1836) and Barbara ?. Hollingsworth Sr. was married to Mary Elizabeth Jones. This is very distant from my line so I'm sure there are others with more information that could help you fill in the blanks, but if I can help you more let me know.
