Researching Wests that originated in Bladen, Duplin , Sampson Counties, NC
I'm doing a Family Tree (using Family Tree Maker plus Ancestry.Com) on the West Surname & associated surnames primarily Lee, Tart & Gregory. These families came to these counties plus Johnston in the 1700s & 1800s. A lot of the descendants migrated to other parts of the country primarily to the south & west, this included nearly all the southern & western states. The migratation started in the 1700s to approx 1850, this was when most of the people left. First they went to Tn, Ky,Ga, Sc & from there to other states.I would be very interested in communicating with individuals doing research on the West surname, possibly we might be able to swap info etc.
