Change in Family Group numbers.
We have merged WEST Family Group 34 into WEST Family Group 28 based on DNA results. Family Group 34 has been deleted, and the information from that group is now included in Family Group 28.

Change in Haplogroup presentation.
As you may have noted the haplogroup assignments have not been kept up-to-date. We are now listing only the root haplogroup in most cases, i.e. R1b, or R1a, or I1, etc. Extended haplogroup assignments can be found on the WEST Y-DNA project on the Family Tree DNA web site at: WEST FTDNA

Three hundred and thirty-one of our participants have received the results of their Y-chromosome DNA test, shown in the table below. We have now identified at least 117 unrelated WEST lines.

   Code numbers are used to present DNA results without disclosing the identity of the participants. Marker DYS # is the name of a "locus" or specific position on the Y chromosome, such as DYS #390. The numbers in the body of the table, for each participant, such as 13 or 24, identify the gene or "allele" found at that locus. These genes are not known to produce any effect in the body; they are simply markers that can be identified and used to compare portions of the Y-chromosome DNA from different individuals.

  Two individuals 'match' when they have the same numbers for each marker, as we see for W03 and W12 in Family Group 3. If two people with the surname WEST match on 24 or 23 of the 25 markers, we feel confident they have a common ancestor. A match on 22 of 25 markers decreases our confidence that they share a common ancestor, unless a paper trail can be found. Matches at 21/25 or less are usually not worth pursuing unless there is other evidence to support a linkage between those two lines.

Y-DNA Haplotypes and Haplogroups

   Your Y-DNA haplotype is the set of numbers for each marker, i.e. DYS 393= 13. Your haplotype will never change, though it may grow larger if you order additional tests that extend your results from 25 to 37 or more markers.
   Your Y-DNA haplogroup is the assignment to one of the clades such as R1a1 or R1b1a2. Haplogroups assign individuals to a group whose founder or "originator" lived many thousands of years  ago. Each haplogroup may include thousands or even millions of men, such as R1b1a2. Your haplogroup may change as new information becomes available and the genetic tree of man is revised to include the new information. You can find much information regarding haplogroups on the internet. The World Families web site has information and links to additional sources that can answer many questions regarding DNA and genealogy at: WorldFamilies



   The heading for each family group lists the oldest identified male WEST for that line, and the ancestor column is the oldest ancestor for a line prior to the DNA test.

*DYS 19 is also known as DYS 394.   Markers 385a & b, 439, 458, 459a & b, 449, and the 464 series are thought to mutate at a faster rate than the other markers. A difference at those markers therefore carries slightly less weight than a difference at one of the "slower" mutating markers.
A 67 marker DNA test is now available, and a few of our participants have ordered that extended DNA test. The below table was added for markers 38 - 67.

 West Family Group 1

    The immigrant ancestor of the Delaware/Maryland/Virginia branch of this family is Robert WEST, born about 1612 in England. Robert was apparently an orphan who was transported to the Colonies around 1620 as an apprentice/indentured servant to Lady Dale. He married Elizabeth, last name unknown, and they were the parents of George WEST, 1639-1702. Robert WEST appears in several court records in Northampton and Accomack Counties Virginia between 1636 and 1645, and those records show that he was deceased by January 1645. The branch of this family that traces their ancestry to South Carolina have not found documentation linking them to the Maryland/Virginia descendants of Robert WEST, and it is possible they represent a separate immigration from England, however this is purely speculation at this time.

    W05 is a descendent of Levi WEST, b. 1725-26 in Maryland, he matches 11 of 12 markers with W02, a descendent of Eli WEST, b. 1771, d. about 1860 in Miami Co., Ohio.  W15 was added to this family group on 26 March 2004, when his DNA test was completed, showing a 24/25 match to W05.  His oldest confirmed ancestor is Soloman WEST, born 1794-96, SC. The DNA samples differ by one mutation at DYS 391. We have learned from experience that matches on the 12 marker test, even with the same surname, can fail to match when the test is expanded to 25 markers. However, in comparing W02 with W05 and W15, we are very confident that they share a common ancestor because of other information revealed by the DNA test.
   W57 was added to this group on June 22, 2005, following receipt of his DNA results. He matches W15 on 24 of 25 markers. W57 is descended from James WEST, born 1771 in North Carolina, and his wife Anna SANDERS. He had no prior connection to other members of Family Group # 1.
   W90 was added to this group on 7 April 2006. He matches W15 on 23 of 25 markers and has the rare value of 14 for DYS426. He is descended from Thomas WEST, born 1750 and died 1802 in Maryland. Thomas WEST married Rachel BURTON.
   W99 matches W05 on 25 of 25 markers tested. He was added to this group on April 28 2006. His oldest ancestor, prior to the DNA test, was Elijah WEST, born 1786 in Sussex Co Delaware, and died in Sangamon Co. Illinois in 1840. Elijah married Elizabeth HENDERSON, who was born in 1791 in Maryland, and died in 1866 in Sangamon Co. ILL.
   W138 was added to this lineage on 16 July 2007. He matches the modal values for this group on all markers. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was Charles Asbury WEST, born in Fayette, Ohio in 1847. Charles Asbury WEST married Ellen WOOSTER in 1847.
   W155 matches the modal values for Family Group 1 on 36 of 37 markers. He descends from Ebeneezer WEST, born about 1800, and died about 1836. He married Mary Moris West about 1822. W155 has recently documented James WEST and wife Nancy HOLLOWAY as the parents of Ebenezer WEST. James WEST died in 1829 and lived in the village of Washington, Delaware, now know as Millsboro, Delaware.
    The oldest ancestor W152 prior to the DNA test was James E. West, born 1871 in Arkansas, and died in 1941 in Caddo County, Oklahoma. James married Anna MOUNT in 1899 in Washington County, Arkansas. Anna's was born in Illinois in 1876, but her father, Robt MOUNT is on the 1880 Marshall County TN census and the 1900 Washington County Arkansas census. We are currently trying to link James E. West to the other WESTs in Family Group 1.
   W189 was added to this group on September 14, 2008. He descends from Hewett/Huett WEST, born about 1825 in Sussex County, Delaware and died 1889 in Sussex County Delaware. Hewett married 2 times, first to Mary Jane WORKMAN about 1845, who was the mother of Thomas Wingate WEST, Joseph WEST, and Nancy WEST. In 1856 he married Mary Ann KING, who was the mother of Sallie W. WEST, Robert R. West, Abraham L. West, and Luella West. There is some evidence that Stockley WEST was the brother of Hewett WEST, and that they were sons of Thomas L. WEST, born about 1790 in Worcester County MD, or Sussex County, DE.
    W191 was added to this group on 9 January 2009. He descends from Robert H. WEST, born 1815/16 in Sussex County, Delaware, died in 1888 in Dover Delaware. Robert married Ellen DICKERSON.
   W203 was added to this group on 7 March 2009. He descends from Avery WEST, born between 1760-70. Found in the 1800 census for Sussex County, Delaware. He died in 1849 in Belmont County, Ohio. He married Betsy (Elizabeth) POOL in 1797 in Dover Delaware. Betsy was a daughter of Mager POOL of Delaware.
   W214 was added to this group on 26 August 2009. He descends from James WEST born 1771 in North Carolina. His wife was Anna SANDERS. This branch of Family Group 1 now includes W57, W152, and W214.
    W218 was added to this group in September 2009. He descends from Isaac WEST, born about 1745 in Virginia or the Carolina's, and died in 1814/15 in Dickson County Tennessee. Isaac married first to Susannah ANDERSON, and second to Mary (unknown). This line uses the given name Solomon, and we think this may be the line of W15, whose oldest ancestor was Solomon WEST of South Carolina.
     W251 was added to this group in June 2010. He descends from Rev. Dr. Joshua WEST, born 1771 Rockingham County Virginia, died 1860 in Shelby County Alabama. Joshua WEST was both a Methodist Minister and a Doctor of Medicine. He married Hannah PRENTICE in 1793 in Virginia. Hannah was born in 1775, and died in 1845 in Shelby County, Alabama.
    W264 was added to this group in July 2010. He is an exact match on 37 markers to W218, whose ancestor Isaac WEST was a brother of Solomon WEST, ancestor of W264. Soloman WEST was born 1726. He married Isabella Boyd. Descendants were found in South Carolina in the early 1800's, Tennessee and Kentucky and later in Missouri in the 1800's. The father of Solomon and Isaac WEST was John WEST, born about 1707, married Mary MADDEN.
   W307 was added to this group in February 2012. Prior to the DNA test his oldest confirmed ancestor was Elijah WEST, born 1738 in Maryland, died 1791 in Delaware. Elijah married Mary WILLIAMS before 1784.
   W354 was added to this group in October, 2013. He descends from Elijah WEST, born 1738 in Maryland - the same line as W307 above.

All males tested in this lineage so far have a very rare value for marker DYS 426. The value of 14 for DYS 426 is found in about 1 of every 2000 men tested (0.047%). We are considering this a "signature" marker for this WEST line. Descendents of these families are exchanging information to further their genealogy research.

 West Family Group 2

W01 differs from W11 at DYS 389-2 (29 vs 30) . This connection might never have been confirmed without DNA testing. My ancestor has a nephew, James WEST b 1835, that I have documented in the 1860 Wayne Co. TN census with wife Delphia. I could not find this James WEST or his family after 1860. The ancestor of W11 is James WEST, who is a child on the 1870 census, living with his mother Mariah WEST. W11 has an oral tradition that the father of his James WEST was killed by bushwhackers shortly before the birth of his son. Apparently the wife listed as Delphia WEST on the 1860 census, is using the name Mariah WEST on the 1870 census. One other clue we had was that the child James WEST on the 1870 census married a MADDOX. A MADDOX family lived adjacent to William WEST on the 1880 census. We are now confident that William WEST (a brother of my ancestor Felix WEST) was the grandfather of James WEST, who was a child of Mariah WEST on the 1870 census.
   W75 matches W01 on 23 of 25 markers. He was added to this family group on 28 Oct 2005 following receipt of his DNA results. His oldest andestor is Anderson WEST who married Martha LANCE. Anderson WEST was b abt 1801, probably in North Carolina. In 1830 he was living in Warren Co. TN, and was enumerated two households away from James WEST in the 1830 census. We have specualted that Anderson and James WEST were probably related, but until the DNA test results, that single census report was the only thing that linked them.


 West Family Group 3

Line of Benjamin WEST, the artist.

Sample W03 and W12 are a perfect 25 / 25 match on the DNA test. W12 has a well documented genealogy to John WEST, b 1690 in Buckinghamshire England. His line is John 1690 Joseph 1718 Isaac 1741. Benjamin WEST is the younger brother of Joseph WEST. W03 has John WEST b abt 1790, PA as his oldest proven ancestor. He has found circumstantial evidence in naming patterns and geographic proximity to the line of Joseph WEST / Jane OWEN, but could not find documentation to prove a relationship. The matching DNA of these two individuals provides further evidence that W03 is descended from this line. These families are collaborating to identify the link between John WEST, b abt 1790, PA, and John WEST, b 1690, England. W18 matches the Benjamin WEST line 21/25. This is tantalizing close, but too distant to include in this family group without additional evidence.
    W339 was added to this group in June 2013. He descends from John WEST, born 1690 in Long Crendon England, died 1776 in Warborough, England. His wife was PEARSON.


 West Family Group 4

  W08 had additional DNA testing reported on 10 July 2005, and the new results are shown. He now matches W43 on 34 of 35 markers. This gives us greater confidence that W08 does share a common ancestor with the other participants in family group #4. Both lines have their genealogy back to the mid-1700's. W08 is descended from Thomas WEST, b 1735-40, d 1796 in Jefferson Co. TN, and Rachel OLIPHANT.  All other members of this group trace their line to Joseph WEST, b 1757, d 1841 in Allegheny Co.PA. It appears that the common ancestor for W08 and the descendents of Joseph WEST pre-dates their current paper genealogy.
   W29 matches W14 on 24 of 25 markers. He was added to this family group on Nov 2, 2004, when his DNA results were completed.  His genealogy research has shown that Joseph WEST, b 1757, and his first wife Mary LOWERY HAY are his ancestors.  
    W43 was added to this group on 12 March 2005. He is the father of W29, and thus the 25 / 25 match was expected. Extending the number of markers tested to 37 will be beneficial in the future in evaluating potential matches.
    W49 was added to this group on 2 April 2005, following completion his DNA test. His ancestor, Benjamin Franklin WEST, 1825-1910, is a son of Joseph WEST and his second wife, Catherine WHITAKER, and a full brother to Aaron West, 1813-1876, ancestor of W14.
    Given the location of PA, John WEST (Family group #3) had been a possible ancestor for W14, W29, and W49. The DNA test has shown us that it is unlikely they share a common ancestor with that line.
   W274 was added to this group in August 2010. He descends from Thomas WEST, born 1735-40, died in 1796 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. Thomas married Rachel OLIPHANT.
    W285 was added to this group in March 2011. He also descends from Joseph WEST, born 1757, and his first wife Mary LOWERY HAY(S).

  West Family Group 5

W22 and W23 match on 23 of 25 markers. They share one marker value which is somewhat rare, a value of 10 on DYS 385a, reinforcing the other information that they share a common ancestor. W23 has William West, b abt 1745 VA, as his oldest WEST ancestor. The earliest document found for William is the baptismal record for his two eldest sons in Shenandoah Co. VA, 1773. He resided in Rockingham Co. VA, where many of his children were born, before moving to Tennessee. He died in Greene Co. TN in 1829. W22 also has a William WEST as his oldest ancestor. His William was b abt 1816 in KY or TN, and lived most of his life in Anderson Co. TN. These families now believe that William WEST b abt 1745 is the grandfather of William WEST b 1816. W22 has added two generations to his ancestry through DNA testing. W24 was added to this family group on 14 August 2004 when his DNA results were completed. W24 and W23 match on 36 of 37 markers. Their relationship was known before the DNA test. W23 and W24 share a common ancestor, Samuel WEST, b 1836 MO, who was a great-grandson of William WEST, b abt 1745. They are 2d cousins, once removed. Genetic matches between known cousins reinforce the value of DNA testing as a means of identifying family groups.
   W42 was added to this group on 15 Feb 2005, following receipt of his DNA test results. His oldest ancestor is Charles P. WEST, born about 1780, VA. Prior to the DNA test, a link was suspected to the line of William West, b 1745, but documentation was missing. The DNA test has confirmed that W42 shares a common ancestor W22, W23, and W24.
   W46 was added to this family on 2 March 2005, following receipt of his DNA results. He matches W23 and W24 on 25 of 25 markers. The oldest ancestor of W46 is James O. WEST b 1808 in Logan Co. KY. This is a very exciting discovery for this line, because James O. West has been their brick wall. They are now working to determine the relationship to William WEST, b 1745 VA.
    W44 was added to Family Group #5 on 12 March 2005, following receipt of his 37 marker DNA test. Within this group, he has the most well documented paper trail to William WEST, b 1745 VA. His DNA results reassure the other participants in this group that some assumptions based on circumstantial evidence were correct.
     W59 was added to this family group on 3 May 2005. He matches other members of Family Group #5 on all markers tested, indicating that he shares a common ancestor with that group. His oldest identified ancestor is Robert West, born about 1834 in Hanover County Virginia, married Mary CLAYTON. Robert WEST was African-American, but we are unsure at present whether he was born in slavery. It is likely that his father or grandfather was a slave owner or overseer.
   W62 is descended from Claiborne WEST, b 1759 in Buckingham Co. VA. He was added to WEST family group #5 on August 30, 2005, upon receipt of his DNA test results. He matches W23 on 35 of 37 markers. A relationship to the line of William WEST, b 1745 VA had not been considered by either branch prior to the DNA test, so this has given them new clues to pursue.
    W64 is descended from Thomas WEST, b about 1718 in VA or NC, whose will was proven in Chatham Co NC in 1808. His DNA results were received on September 2, 2005. He matches W23 and W46 on 23 of 25 markers. A relationship to the other partiicpants in Family Group #5 had only been suspected prior to the DNA test results. This group still has much work to determine relationships, but they can now collaborate to fill in gaps in their family history.
    W65 is the 10th member of Family Group #5, and was added on 27 October 2005 following receipt of his DNA results. He matches W23 and W46 on 25 of 25 markers. His oldest ancestors are Amos WEST, b abt 1766, probably in Orange Co NC and his wife Frances HERNDON. Quoting from the genealogist for this line " We in this West line have theorized that Amos West is a possible son of Richard West (b. Ca. 1738-1739, d. Aft. 1819), who is the son of Thomas West, Sr. (Ca. 1718-1808). Thomas West, Sr. is the ancestor of W64." This DNA results certainly gives credibility to their hypothesis.
     We are all very excited about the relationships being discovered for this group. In one message to me, W46 stated that he and W64 had exchanged information in about 1998, and concluded that it was unlikely their lines were related, so discontinued the correspondence. The DNA test has shown that they do share a common ancestor, and has re-invigorated their search.
     W104 was added to this group on 18 July 2006. He matches WEST family group 5 modal values on 36 of 37 markers. He is descended from Phoebe Smithers, born 1843 in Tennessee. Phoebe was not married, and gave her surname to her children. His DNA match, combined with WEST descendents of family group 5 living near Phoebe, appears to confirm that his Y-chromosome ancestor is from the line of William WEST/Mary Rutherford.
   W113 was added to this group on 5 January 2007. He matches W23 on 34 of 37 markers. W113 is descended from David WEST who married Susannah HOAG. The data and place of birth of David is unknown, but some of their children were born in Dutchess County, New York beginning about 1780, and later moved to Lewanee County, Michigan.
   W122 was added to this group on 24 February 2007. He matches the modal Group 5 haplotype 34/37. W122 descends from James W. WEST, born May 6, 1808 in Virginia, died May 6 1882 in New Liberty, Owen County, Kentucky. He married 3 times: 1) Nany NUTTER; 2) Harriet NUTTER; 3) Margaret ORR. W122 descends from his first wife Nancy NUTTER. James W. WEST was a blacksmith.
   W66 was added to this group on 27 March 2007, following completion of his 25 marker Y-DNA test. He descends from Judah WEST, born 1765, probably in Connecticutt. Judah married Mary TODD in 1786 in Colebrook, Litchfield County, Connecticut. Judah died before 1841 when Mary was probably living with one of her children in Chardon, Geauga County, Ohio. It appears likely that W66 and W113 are from the same branch of this family that either immigrated to the New England area, or moved there from the Virginia area before 1750. W66 and W113 have values of 30 for the marker DYS 389-2, while everyone else in this group have values of 29.
   W257 was added to this group in June 2010. He descends from Benjamin WEST, born 1775-1780, probably in Caroline County Virginia, died in 1827 in Virginia, probably in Caroline or Hanover County. His wife was Nancy (last name unknown).
    W255 was added this group in July 2010. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was Silas Mercer McLemore WEST, born 1826-27 in Alabama, and died between 1877-80 in Grimes County Texas. Silas married first to Martha A. BAZEMORE in Shelby County TN in 1853. In 1877 he married Mary DAVIS in Grimes County Texas.
   W270 was added to this group in October 2010. He descends from John WEST who died before Feb 12, 1745 in Stafford County VA. John married Dorothy (last name unknown), and they were the parents of James WEST b 1742 in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County VA, married Ann LYNN/LINN.
   W299 was added to this group in October 2011. He descends from Thomas WEST, Sr., born 1718 in Virginia, and died in 1808. He married Catherine Rebecca EASTINGS, born 1725 in Virginia.  W299 descends through Thomas son Ignatius WEST.
   W338 was added to this group in April 2013. His oldest ancestor is William WEST, born 1798 in England, died 1902 in Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia. He emigrated from Bristol, England to Australia in 1855.
   W344 was added to this group in August 2013, we have no information on his WEST lineage.


  West Family Group 6

W04 and W33 are brothers. They wanted to verify their results because their DNA haplotype is so rare. In addition to the rarity of their haplotype we have discovered a mutation as it occurred. They match on all markers except DYS 464. 464 is a multi-copy marker, meaning that it has been copied entirely and inserted on the Y-chromosome at multiple locations, giving us a, b, c, d, and in rare cases e and f. The laboratory method for extracting these markers from the chromosome cannot distinguish between the different copies, so the lab lists them from shortest to longest for simplicity. When comparing results at DYS 464, the order in which they are listed is ignored and they are compared by number of repeats. For this pair, W04 has values 14, 16, 16 17; W33 has values 14, 14, 16, 16. In comparing these two haplotypes, a 14 in W04 matches a 14 in W33, both have two 16's which match. That leaves us with a 17 for W04 and a 14 for W33 that are not matched in the other individual. In this case we have a single mutation which resulted in a 3-step difference. We don't know whether a 14 mutated to 17, or a 17 mutated to 14, but it does not matter for our comparison. Since we are sure only one mutation occurred, this is counted as a genetic distance of one, and their overall match is 24 of 25 markers.
   W70 was added to this group on 21 August 2005. His oldest ancestor is Samuel Littleton WEST, born 1846 (KY?), died in 1920 in Floyd County, Texas. He married first Isabella McGRAW in 1869 in Fulton County, KY, and second to Margaret Eliza TOWRY in 1889 in Arkansas.
   W109 was added to this group on 15 April 2007. He descendes from Robert WEST, born 1804, probably in Sumner County, Tennessee, died in 1863 in Graves County, Kentucky. Robert WEST married Mary CURRY in 1821. She was born 1798 in South Carolina and died after 1884 in Graves County Kentucky.
   W129 was added to this group on 21 April 2007. He descends from Lewis WEST, born 1808 in Indiana. He married Sarah EDWARDS, and they were in Gallatin County, Illinois in 1850 and 1860.
   W151 descends from Henry WEST, born about 1820 in Tennessee. The earliest record found thus far is the 1870 census for Graves County, Kentucky. This family moved to Missouri by 1880. Some of the children of Henry WEST are found in Coryell County, Texas by 1900.
   W224 was added to this group in September 2009. He descends from James R. WEST, born in 1829 in Georgia, possibly Troup or Oglethorpe Counties. He died in Randolph County Alabama about 1857. His wife was Mary FORMBY.
   W226 was added to this group in October 2009. He descends from James WEST, date and place of birth unknown. James died in Georgia in 1818. His wife was Tabitha, last name unknown.
   W245 was addes to this group in April 2010. He descends from Ephraim WEST, born 1798 in Georgia, died 1864 in Randolph County Alabama. Ephraim married Lucinda Wallace McCLENDON. This branch migrated from Alabama through Taney and Lawrence Counties in Missouri and to Delaware County Oklahoma.
    None of the participants in this group had been in contact prior to the DNA test (except for W04 and W33). It appears that their common ancestor may have been in Virginia or the Carolinas in the mid - 1700's, with descendents migrating southwest into Georgia, west into Tennessee, and northwest into the Ohio River Valley.


  West Family Group 7

   Thomas WEST, b abt 1730 in Fairfax Co. VA, married Sarah TRAMMEL about 1753. Traditional genealogy research has identified 9 children born between 1754 and 1775, including six sons, Thomas Jr 1754, William 1756, John 1758, George 1767, Hugh 1770, and Robert 1775. W25 and W30 have a DNA match on 24 of 25 markers, thus we are confident that they share a common ancestor. Their paper genealogy connects them to Robert, the youngest son of Thomas and Sarah WEST. They are both descended from the same grandson of Robert.
   W19 and W36 match on 23 of 25 markers. Their numbers in the table appear to match 24/25, but the markers DYS 389-1 and 389-2 must be interpreted together. DYS 389-1 is a subset within DYS 389-2, meaning that a change in 389-1 will always cause the value of 389-2 to change. In this case there appears to be a mutation from a value of 12 on DYS 389-1 (W19) to a value of 13 (W36). If there were only a single difference between these two men, then DYS 389-2 would have a value of 29 for W36. Since both men have a value of 28 for DYS 389-2, this tells us that there has been a mutation at that position as well in one of the lines. The paper genealogy of W19 and W36 connects them to John WEST, third child of Thomas and Sarah WEST. Because of the DNA match we are confident that W19 and W36 share a common ancestor, and that ancestor is most probably John WEST, b 1758.
W63 was added to group 7b on 13 June 2005. He is an exact 12/12 match to W19. His research indicates that he is descended from John WEST, born 1758, son of Thomas and Sarah Trammel WEST.
   W108 was added to this group on 28 Octbober 2006. He matches W19 on 25 of 25 markers. The oldest ancestor of W108 is "Major" John West who was born in Virginia about 1650. John married first Susannah (Sarah) PEARSON, and second to Elizabeth Simmes TURLEY. "Major" John WEST died in Stafford County, Virginia, and his will was probated on 13 February 1716 (OS)/1717 (NS).  This is a very exciting match for Family group 7. They are exploring the possibility that Thomas WEST who married Sarah TRAMMEL is a grandson of John WEST b 1650.
   W106 was added to Family Group 7a on 2 December 2006. He matches W25 on 24 of 25 markers. He is also descended from Robert WEST, youngest son of Thomas WEST and Sarah TRAMMEL.
    The line of Thomas WEST was further complicated with the Y-DNA results for W119 on 4 February 2007. W119 has a paper genealogy record showing descent from Thomas WEST Jr. However his DNA results do not match either the descendents of Robert WEST (group 7a) or John WEST (group 7b). W119 forms a new descendent group - 7b. We still cannot determine which group (if any) carry the Y-chromosome of Thomas WEST Sr. That will require matching DNA between descendents of two different sons of Thomas WEST and Sarah TRAMMEL.
   W133 descends from William WEST who married Susan REID. William WEST was one of the sons of Thomas WEST and Sarah TRAMMEL. W133 is an exact 37/37 march to W19, who descends from John WEST, another son of Thomas WEST and Sarah TRAMMEL, and brother of William WEST. This DNA result appears to confirm that W19, W36, W63, and W133 in Family Group 7b share Thomas WEST as their ancestor.
   W180 was added to this group on 24 September 2008. He matches W108 on 64 of 67 markers. W180 descends from Hugh WEST, grandson of Major John WEST.
   W221 was added to this group in September 2009. He descends from John WEST, born about 1722 in London England. His wife Mary HARRIS was born about 1726 and they were married in 1746 in London. The ancestors of W221 emigrated to the United States in 1909.
   W268 was added to this group in August 2010. He matches W119 in Family Group 7c on 23 of 25 markers and has a paper genealogy that leads to Thomas WEST and Sarah TRAMMEL as his ancestors. His line of descent is through Thomas WEST, Jr., born about 1750.
   W297 was added to Family Group 7b in September 2011. He descends from John WEST, born 1598 in St. Botolph Bishopsgate Parish, London, Middlesex, England, and died there after 1650. His wife was Elizabeth (last name unknown). W297 matches W221 closer than the other participants in Family Group 7b, and it is probable that this branch (W221 and W297) represent a separate and much later emigration from England to North America than the others in this group.
   What has DNA testing revealed about the line of Thomas WEST / Sarah TRAMMEL? The matching DNA of W19 and W133 tells that they share a common ancestor. Each has a good paper trail to a son of Thomas WEST. The most likely explanation is that Thomas WEST was the father of John (ancestor of W19) WEST and of William (ancestor of W133) WEST.   What about groups 7a and 7c who have a paper trail to Robert WEST (7a) and Thomas WEST Jr. (7c)? Their DNA does not match group 7b, nor do 7a and 7c match each other. Those groups may re-examine the record to look for a possible weak link in the paper trail. They may also consider a break in the surname line.


  West Family Group 8

   W31 is descended from Edward West, who was christened 3 Sep 1643 in St. Giles, Cripplegate, London, England, and died before 1677 in New Castle, Rockingham, New Hampshire. He married Martha WALTON in 1662 in Rockingham, NH. W32 has Samuel WEST, b between 1756-67, died 1831 in Clinton Co. NY, as his oldest WEST ancestor. Samuel married Margaret Jenkins in 1789. This DNA match has given W32 new direction and focus for his genealogy research, and he is now concentrating on linking to the descendents of Edward WEST.
    W45 had circumstantial evidence that he was descended from Edward WEST, b 1643, but had a missing generation that could not be located in the records. The DNA test has confirmed that he and W31 share a common ancestor, who is most likely Edward WEST.
    W77 was added to this lineage on 26 November 2005 following receipt of his DNA test results. He matches W31 on 34 of 37 markers. The oldest ancestor of W77 is Elijah WEST, born 1773 in Hopkington, New Hampshire, died 1817 in Bradford, New Hampshire. He married Polly Kendall in 1795. After Elijah's death, Polly remarried to James PRESBY, she died in 1867 in Bradford, New Hampshire. Timothy Kendall WEST, son of Elijah and Polly is the ancestor of W77.
   W163 was added to this group on 16 Dec 2007. He matches the modal haplotype on 36 of 37 markers. The oldest ancestor of W163 is Preston WEST, born in New York in 1826, and died in 1858 in Owsego County, New York. He married Catherine SIEGEL in 1847 in New York. Catherine was born in 1831 in Montgomery County, New York, and died in 1910 in Cherokee County, Iowa.


  West Family Group 9

W17 and W26 match on 24 of 25 markers. The oldest ancestor of W26 is John West, b abt 1796 in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. He has an oral tradition that John West came to America with several relatives, probably in the 1830's. W17 also has an oral tradition that his oldest ancestor, George WEST, was from Ireland, perhaps from the Sligo/Lietrim area, but had not been able to verify the location or time of emigration. W17 and W26 had not been in contact before DNA testing. They are exchanging genealogy information in search of a common link.
     W131 was added to this group on 22 March 2007. He matches both W17 and W26 exactly on 12 markers. He has a known close relationship to W26, so this DNA match was expected.
    W167 was added to this group on 10 Dec, 2007. His DNA test was from a different lab, and there are 31 markers that can be compared with W26. The oldest ancestor of W167 is John Armstrong WEST, born about 1790 in Pennsylvania. It appears likely that there were separate immigrations of the ancestors of W17, W26, and W167 to North America.
   W228 was added to this group in January 2010. He is an exact 37 marker match to W26. The earliest known ancestor of W228 is Reverend Samuel WEST, born between 1779 - 1784 in Pennsylvania or Virginia. He married Rebecca STRONG, and died in Ohio in 1879.
   W331 was added to this group in April 2013. His oldest ancestor is Johnston or John WEST, born about 1756 Killyleagh, County Down, Ireland, died after 1798 Killyleagh, County Down, Ireland. His wife was Agnes CROSKERY.
    W346 was added to this group in September 2013. We have no information on his WEST lineage.

  West Family Group 10

W38 and W39 match on 24 of 25 markers. They appear to differ at both DYS 389-1 and 389-2, however these two markers must be considered together. DYS 389-1 is a subset within DYS 389-2, so that a change in DYS 389-1 always results in a corresponding change in DYS 389-2. In this case there is mutation from 12 to 13 on DYS 389-1, which results in a corresponding change from 28 to 29 on DYS 389-2. The bottom line is that these two men have a genetic distance of one. The oldest ancestor of W39 is Samuel WEST, born before 1753, died in 1808 in Duplin Co., NC. His wife is unknown. His children were found in Duplin, Bladen, and Sampson Counties in NC, and in Baker and Mitchell Counties in Georgia. The WEST line of W38 was also in Georgia at about the same time period.
   W50 was added to this family group on 5 April 2005, when his DNA results were received. His oldest ancestor is Daniel J. WEST Sr. born about 1786, probably in Duplin Co. NC.  He married Mary Elizabeth EZZELL on June 2, 1806 in Duplin/Sampson Co NC, and died between 1845-50 in Warsaw NC. This group now believes that Daniel was the son of Samuel WEST, who died in 1808 in Duplin Co. NC.
    W128 was added to this group on 7 May 2007. He matches W38 on 35 of 37 markers. He descends from John R. WEST, born 1829 in Sampson County, North Carolina, died after 1910 in Duplin County, North Carolina. John married first to Amanda EZELL, probably before 1860. He married Mary E. PRIDGEN in 1866.
    W168 was added to this group on 9 January 2009. He descends from John WEST, born about 1745, probably in Craven County, North Carolina, died in 1800 in Craven County NC. Based on his will, his wife died prior to John, so her name is not yet known.
   W252 was added to this group in June 2010. He descends from Major C. WEST, born about 1805 in North Carolina or Georgia, married Temperance SHARP in 1824 in Milledgeville, Baldwin County Georgia. W252 descends through their son Francis "Frederick" WEST, born 1826 in Sumpter County Georgia, died in 1889 in Dallas Texas. His wife was Mary Jane ALLEN, born 1824, died unknown.
    W258 was added to this group in December 2010. His oldest ancestor is Sylvester James WEST, born 1858 in Duplin County, North Carolina, and died in 1926 in Wilmington, North Carolina. He married Ada JOHNSON.
   W342 was added to this group in September 2013. He descends from William Thomas WEST, born about 1823 in Burke County, Georgia, died after 1860 in Mitchell County, Georgia. His wife was Mary.

  West Family Group 11

W18 and W51 match on 23 of 25 markers. The oldest ancestor of W18 is John B. WEST, b 1801, Valley Forge PA. d 1876, Liberty Center, OH. He married Mary Ann Hopkins, in 1829, in Middletown, MD. W51 is descended from William Berry WEST, born 1822 in Tennessee, died about 1887 in Marshall Co. Mississippi, and his wife Mary Ann "Polly" SWAIN. One census record gives North Carolina as the place of birth of William Berry WEST. These DNA results fall into the category of "Atlantic Modal Haplotype" or AMH. That is the most common Y-chromosome profile among Western European males, there are potentially hundreds or thousands of men who will be a close match to this DNA result. For that reason this match is considered tentative until a paper link between the lines is found.
    W58 matches W18 exactly on 25 markers. He was added to this group on 2 July 2005, following receipt of his DNA test results. His oldest ancestor is Nathaniel WEST, born 1750 in Baltimore Co. Maryland, who married Elizabeth "Betsy" LEWIS.
    W69 was added to the lineage on 21 Oct 2005, following receipt of his DNA results. His oldest ancestor is Nathaniel West, b about 1783 in Washington Co. PA, died in 1858 in Jackson Co. Ohio. His wife is Mary "Polly" CAHILL. W51 and W69 match on 32 of 37 markers on the extended DNA test. Because they have many matches to other surnames, the DNA test is not conclusive that W51 shares a common ancestor with the others in this group. Until paper documentation or other evidence is found, placement of W51 in this group remains speculative.

   W121 was added to this group on February 24, 2007. He matches the modal haplotype 36/37. W121 has a firm paper trail to Abram West, 1825-1897 Beaver county Pa, who married Sarah SOWASH (1829-1913). The ancestor of Abram is Joseph WEST born about 1747, possibly in Bedford County, Virginia, and died 1827 in Beaver, Pennsylvania.
    W153 matches the modal values for Family Group 11 on all markers. he descends from James D. WEST, born 1812 in Franklin County, Tennessee, died in 1846. James married Lucy Brooks ROGERS in 1836. Lucy was born 1816 in Nashville, Tennessee.
   W206 was added to this group on 13 April 2009. He matches the modal value for FG 11 on 32 markers available for comparison. W206 descends from the same ancestor as W58, Nathaniel WEST, born 1750 in Baltimore County, Maryland and died in 1840 in Clay County, Illinois. Nathanield married Elizabeth "Betsy" LEWIS who was born 1750 in Loudon County, Virginia.
    W208 was added to this group on 21 April 2009. He descends from Morris WEST, born 1752 in Maryland and died about 1839 in Harrison County, Ohio.
   W227 was added to this group in January 2010. He descends from Jonathan WEST, born 1765 in Kentucky, and died in 1841 in Madison County, Kentucky.  Jonathan married Charlotte PUELLY, born 1775 in Allegany, MD, died in 1845 in Jersey Co, Illinois.
    W241 was added to this group in May 2010. He descends from Alexander WEST, born 1827 in Rowan County, North Carolina. Alexander's wife was Mary D. HOLCOMB.
   W281 was added to this group in January 2011. His oldest identified ancestor is Thomas WEST born about 1749 in Maryland, died about 1835 in Campbell County, Kentucky. He was married to Jane (unknown) Their only known son George WEST was born in 1776 in VA (now WV).
   W283 was added to this group in May 2011. His oldest ancestor is William Jackson WEST, born about 1823, probably in Illinois. Facts about his death are unknown. He married Avis Wood CLAY in Washington County Arkansas about 1852. Avis was born about 1823 in Arkansas.
    W321 was added to this group in September 2012. He descends from Michael M. WEST, born 1831 in Kentucky (perhaps Estill County). He married Mary M. DAVIS.
    W327 was added to this group in January 2013. His oldest ancestor is Levi Henry WEST, born 1846 in Fayette County Illinois, died 1888 or 1889 in Barry County Missouri. He married Emeline Parnesy PYATT.
   W334 was added to this group in February 2013. He descends from Thomas WEST, Sr., born between 1171-1775 in Loudon County, Virginia. Thomas married Margaret HOWELL, and died before 1850 in Ohio. His father may have been Nathaniel WEST, born 1752 in Loudon County, Virginia.
       W347 was added to this group in August 2013. We have not received information on his WEST lineage.

  West Family Group 12

W47 and W48 match on 24 of 25 markers. W48 has James WEST, b 1798 SC as his oldest ancestor. They believe he married about 1820 and had 5 children by his first wife. He may have been in Wayne Co TN in the 1830-40 period. After the disolution of his first marriage by death of his wife, divorce, or abandonment, he married Sarah Jane "Jincy" TAYLOR in the late 1840's in MS and they had 5 children. Nothing is known of the children by his first wife. W47 has John W. WEST, born 1870 in Mississippi, married Luda DANIEL in 1890 in Maud Texas, as his oldest ancestor. They are exchanging information to determine whether John W. WEST is a grandson of James WEST, or is more remotely related.
   W53 was added to this group on 6 may 2005, following receipt of his Y-DNA results. His oldest ancestor is Silas WEST, born 1832, and died between 1900-1910 in Sampson County, NC. Silas married Winnefred "Winnie" BAREFOOT, born about 1845, died in Johnston Co. NC. None of the participants in Family Group #12 had been in contact prior to the DNA test results, and the match was a surprise to all. They are exchanging genealogy data to see if they can identify a common ancestor.
   W98 matches the men in this group on all 37 markers. His oldest ancestor is Edwin Jackson WEST, born 1836 in Alabama, died 1885 in Vernon Parrish, LA. Edwin married Atsey Elmira BAILEY, who was born in Arkansas in 1840 and died in 1915. They had not been able to find the parents of Edwin, but the linkage to the line of W48 may have provided the clue to his parents in Mississippi in the 1850 census.
   W93 was added to this group on 14 April 2006, he matches the others in this group on 25 of 25 markers tested. His oldest ancestor is James West, born about 1725, probably North Carolina, and died about 1812 in Sampson Co. NC. The name of his wife is unknown. W93 is descended from Willis WEST (son of James) born about 1755 in Sampson Co. NC, and died in Fayette Co. Georgia in 1837. This is a very exciting match for the others in this group. None of them had been able to get past about 1800 with their genealogy. New information from W93 may allow them to add one of two generations to their families.
   W175 was added to this group on 5 April 2008. He is an exact match to the other men in Family Group 12. Isom/Isham WEST, born about 1827 in Tennessee is the oldest ancestor of W175. Isom WEST appears on the 1850 census for Wayne County Tennessee in the household of a LEE family. His descendants have not been able to link him to any other WESTs prior to the DNA test. They are pursuing the possibility that Isom West was a son of James WEST (ancestor of W48).
    W187 was added to this group on 1 November 2008. He descends from Benjamin WEST, born 1857 in North Carolina.
   W195 descends from John WEST, born 1788 in North Carolina and died in 1850 in Gibson County, Tennessee. He married Elizabeth FRAZIER, who was born in 1796 in North Carolina and died in 1860 in Gibson County, Tennessee. W195 descends through their son Ollin/Olen WEST, born 1820 in Bladen County, North Carolina.
   W210 was added to this group on 25 May 2009. He descends from Isham Wesley WEST, born 1780 in North Carolina, died in 1846 in Indiana. He married first to Sarah RUNNELS, and second to Elizabeth McDONALD. He may be a son of James West, abt 1728-48, of Bladen County, North Carolina. Siblings of Isham were, Anna, Brittain, Celia, James, Joel, Lucretia, Margaret, Mary, Patience, William, Delilah and Willis.
   W213 was added to this group on 13 August 2009. He descends from Nathanield WEST, born 1732 in Mississippi or Louisiana, died 1776 in North Carolina. Nathaniel married first to Marie SALLARS and second to Sarah BONAN.
   W212 was added to this group on 3 September 2009. The oldest documented ancestor prior to the DNA test was William Wiley WEST, born 1854 in Arkansas, and died 1953 in Oklahoma, wife Roda Arena CARLOCK. Evidence indicated that William was a son of Owen WEST, 1820 NC - 1890 AR, and grandson of John WEST and Elizabeth FRAZIER. The DNA test has confirmed that W212 shares a common ancestor with other descendants of John and Elizabeth FRAZIER WEST.
   W291 was added to this group in March 2011. He descends from Henry Harbert West born 1839 in Louisiana, died 1905 in Centerville, Leon, Texas. Henry Harbert WEST may be a son of Andrew West, born 1810 in St. Landry Louisiana, and the grandson of Nathaniel West, born 1776 in Louisiana, but the father and grandfather have not been proven. It appears W291 and W213 are from the same branch of this WEST line.
   W292 was added to this group in March 2011. He descends from Henry West, born abt 1690 in Isle of Wight, Virginia, died 13 Aug 1745 in Edgecombe County, NC. Henry married Susannah FULGHAM abt 1720 in Isle of Wight, Virginia. W292 descends through Henry's son James H. WEST, born 1725 in Edgecombe County, NC, died 1812 in Sampson County, NC, married Elizabeth BUTTONSHELL.
   W290 was added to this group in May 2011. His oldest ancestor is Edwin Jackson WEST (the same ancestor as W98), born 1836 in Alabama, married Atsey Elmira BAILEY. Edwin died in Vernon Parish, Louisiana in 1885.
   W302 was added to this group in October 2011. He descends from John WEST, born 1788 in North Carolina, died 1850 in Gibson County Tennessee. John married Elizabeth FRAZIER.
    W343 was added to this group in September 2013. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was John C. WEST, born 1822 in North Carolina, died 1862 at Rappahannock River, Virginia. His wife was Nancy Ann E. HADDOCK.

   W169 was added to this group on 22 December 2007. He matches W52 on 35 of 37 markers. He descends from George W. West, born 1818-20 in South Carolina.  George WEST was in Forsyth County Georgia from 1860-80. His wife was Jannette or Jinny, last name unknown, born in Ireland according to census records. Some of his children were in Arkansas by 1875.
   W177 was added to this group on 21 May 2008. He descends from Thomas William WEST, born 1833 in Callaway County, Missouri. Thomas married Mary Ann MARTIN, who was born 1834 and died in 1870.
   W317 was added to this group in March 2012. He descends from Joseph WEST, born about 1662 in Virginia, and his wife Rebecca MEARS.

    W341 was added to this group in June 2013. He oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was George W. WEST, born about 1819 in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, died 1895 in Forsyth County, Georgia. His wife was Jennet (Jenny) COWEN, born in County Antrim, Ireland.

  West Family Group 14

W40 and W72 match on 24 of 25 markers. W40 is descended from Zachariah WEST, born in Kentucky or Virginia about 1811 - 1814, who migrated to Missouri in the 1840's. The ancestors of W72 are Samuel WEST, b about 1823, and Nancy STORY, born about 1825. Samuel and Nancy were married in Bracken Co. Kentucky in 1846. Samuel moved his family to Adams Co. Ohio after 1850. W40 has a couple of Samuels in his line, so they are hoping this match will give them clues to the next generation in their genealogy.
    W125 was added to this group on 8 May 2007. He matches W40 on all 25 markers. W125 descends from John WEST (or E. John WEST) born 1809, died 1873 in Vinton County, Ohio. John married Martha SHANKS in Muskingum County, Ohio 1841.
    W284 was added to this group in February 2011.

  West Family Group 15

W28 and W68 match on 24 of 25 markers. They were placed in Family Group #15 on 3 Nov 2005 following receipt of the DNA results for W68. The oldest ancestor of W28 is Alfred/Alferd WEST, born 1840 in Loudon County TN. He married first Sarah ROBERTS, and second Amanda MADDOX.
     W68 is descended from James N. WEST, b 1838-45 in Tennessee, and died between 1910-20 in Georgia. His wife was Nancy Lucinda SOUTHERLAND, b 1851, Copperhill, TN and died 1909 in Dalton Georgia. W28 and W68 had not been in contact prior to the DNA test results.
   W34 was added to this lineage on 18 November 2005. His oldest ancest is John WEST, born in Tennesse about 1850 and died in Rutherford County TN about 1875. He married Liddy JONES about 1870. His son John Hamilton WEST, b 1872 in Rutherford Co. TN, married Alice Victoria CHILDERS in Faulkner Co. AR, and died in Pittsburg Co. OK in 1941. These families had not been in contact before the DNA test, and are using this new information to determine their relationships.
   W85 was added to this group on 16 Dec 2005. He matches W68 on 24 of 25 markers. His oldest ancestor is Wilson WEST, b 1824 in Lincoln County, NC, married Nancy Jane JACKSON in Overton Co. TN in 1849 or 1850. Wilson WEST died in Indian Territory, now Murray Co OK, in 1899. Parents of Wilson WEST may be Barnet West and Barbara Rumfelt, but that is only speculation at this time.
   W123 was added to this line on 1 March 2007. He matches W68 on 36 of 37 markers. His oldest ancestor is Daniel West, born 1775 in South Carolina, died after 1850 in Arkansas. Daniel married first Mary 'Polly' MIDDLETON, who was born in Hancock Co Georgia in 1780 and died before 1848 when he married Elizabeth McGRAW in Pulaski County, Arkansas.
   W140 was added to this group on 15 July 2007. He descends from James (Hampton?) WEST, born between 1788-92 in South Carolina. He married Jane (last name unknown). James WEST died in 1855 in Stockdale, Texas. W140 descends from James's son Jacob WEST. Relationship to the others in Family Group 15 was unknown prior to the DNA test results.
   W147 was added to this group on 15 September 2007. He descends from Isaac West, first found in Lincoln Co. NC records in about 1767. Isaac was born around 1745, location unknown. It is thought that he lived in Lincoln Co. until he died about 1830. Some of his children, including Stephen, ancestor of W147, came to Overton Co TN in the very early 1800's. Stephen was born in 1767, and died in 1855. He is buried in the Hatcher Hall Cemetery in Overton Co TN. Stephen married Mary BELK.
   W278 was added to this group in December 2010. Both he and W140 descend from James Hampton WEST, born 1788-92, died 1855 in Texas.
   W298 was added to this group in September 2011. He descends from Wade Hampton WEST, born about 1818, probably in Georgia, and died in 1896 in Wilson County, Texas. He married Susan HUMPHREYS. It is thought by the descendents that W298, W278, and W140 descend from three brothers, but documentation to prove that hypothesis has not been found. The Y-DNA results do not exclude that possibility.

  West Family Group 16

    W67 and W81 match on 36 of 37 markers. The oldest ancestor of W67 is Isham WEST, born 1806 in Kentucky. He married Alzadia unknown. Isham WEST was in East Tn in the early 1800's and moved to Dade Co. Missouri by 1850, and died in Missouri in 1889. There is some evidence that the father of Isham may have been Jeptha WEST, born in North Carolina, but that has not been proven. The line of W81 is also found in Kentucky.

   W289 was added to this group in May 2011. He descends from Benjamin WEST, born 1738 in England, died in 1823.
   W316 was added to this group in April 2012. He descends from Sergeant James WEST, born 1735.
    W318 was added to this group in June 2012. His oldest ancestor is Jeptha WEST, born 1778 in Onslow County, North Carolina. His wife was Millie Mary Sewachee GENTRY, born 1781, died 1853 in Pulaski County, Missouri.

  West Family Group 17

    W71, W73 and W83 match on 37 of 37 markers. W71 and W83 are brothers, so their DNA match was expected. This line had a paper trail to Isham WEST, born about 1784 in Virginia. The same Isham WEST as the ancestor of Family Group 6. However, the DNA test has shown us that they cannot share a common ancestor with Family 6. They are now looking for an undocumented adoption or other evidence to determine where the break in the surname line has occurred.
   W97 was added to this group on 25 June 2006. He matches the other WESTs in Family 17 on 33 of 37 markers, with a genetic distance of 5. The oldest ancestor of W97 is John West Sr, born 1762 Isle of Wight County Virginia. This John came to Georgia and there died in 1836. There was no prior known connection between the ancestor of W97 and the others in this group. As they have compared genealogies, it appears that the common ancestor of W97 and the others in this group pre-dates their current genealogy. This DNA results seems to make it less likely that Isham WEST, b 1784 is the ancestor for W71, W73, and W83.
    W217 was added to this group on 17 September 2009. His oldest ancestor is Henry WEST, born about 1785 in North Carolina, died in 1854 in Union County North Carolina. The surname of his wife Elizabeth has not been found. She was also born in North Carolina about 1786, and appears to have died between 1850 - 1860. Some of their children moved to Tuscaloosa County Alabama.
   W237 was added to this group in March 2010. His direct paternal ancestor was Jenkins BASS, born about 1800-1802 in North Carolina. He does not match anyone with the BASS surname, and it is thought that his father or grandfather may have had the WEST surname. Jenkins Bass was born in Sampson County North Carolina and died in 1865. He married Colin (or Colen) DUDLEY, who was born in Sampson or Duplin County NC in 1806, and died after 1865.
   W296 was added to this group in September 2011. He descends from Thomas West, born about 1826 in North Carolina and died before 1870. His wife was Martha Jane PORTER.

  West Family Group 18

    W82 and W91 match on 25 of 25 markers. W82 is descended from William Nelson West, born 1775 in Virginia or North Carolina, and died in 1846 in Tallahatchie Co.,MS. He married Alsey ROGERS who died in 1862 in Smith Co., AR.  W91 is descended from James C. WEST, born 1807-1812, probably in old 96 District South Carolina. He married Jane/Jinsy BELL, and they and their extended family migrated from SC > GA > Pike Co. AL > Walton Co. FL > Wayne Co. MS. from 1800 to 1860.
    W92 was added to this group on 3 June 2006. He has a solid paper trail to William Nelson WEST, the ancestor of W82. Though the DNA match with W82 is 21/25, three of the differences are on the faster mutating DYS 464 set of markers. W82 is descended from William Jasper WEST, 1821 - 1896 MS, and his wife Martha WELLS. W92 is descended from a different son of William Nelson WEST, Shadrach Nelson WEST, 1802 SC - 1891 TX, married Penelope MOODY. We hope to get a DNA test from a third son of William Nelson WEST to confirm this line.
    W111 was added to this group on February 20, 2007. He descends from Shadrach Nelson WEST, thought to be the oldest son William Nelson WEST, and also the ancestor of W92. W111 has mutations on DYS 464, as does W92.
   W116 was added to this group on 25 April 2007. He matches W111 on 25 of 25 genetic markers. W116 descends from William Nelson WEST thru his youngest son Jessie Nighton WEST, born 1829 in Covington County, Mississippi, died 1904 in Greer County, Oklahoma. Jessie married Frances Rachel JOLLY.
    W286 was added to this group in March 2011. His oldest confirmed ancestor is James C. West, born 22 Nov 1809 in Georgia, died 8 Oct 1899 in Wayne County, Mississippi. Buried at Yellow Creek Cemetary. His wife was Jane (Jinsy) BELL (1818-1896) from South Carolina.

  West Family Group 19

    W20 and W89 match on 24 of 25 markers. They are descended from Francis WEST of Duxburry, Mass, who was born about 1606 in England. Francis married Margery REEVES. They share Dr. Thomas WEST, b 1646, son of Francis and Margery as their most recent common ancestor. W20 is descended from Dr. Thomas West's son, Thomas WEST, born 1687 in Matha's Vineyard, married Mary PRESBURY. W89 is descended from Abner WEST, born 1683, who married Jean LOOK. Abner WEST - 1683, and Thomas WEST - 1687, were brothers.
   W139 was added to this group on 18 July 2007. He descends from Francis and Margery Reeves WEST son Thomas WEST, who married Mary PRESBURY.
   W178 descends from Francis WEST/Margery REEVES through their son Thomas WEST, born 1646. His ancestors include Joseph WEST born 1793 in Freeport Maine, who married Lucretia SOULE. Perhaps a source of some of the confusion for genealogists who confuse this Francis WEST with the Francis WEST in Family Group 20 who married Susannah SOULE. The Y-DNA confirms that these are two unrelated WEST lines.
   W225 was added to this group in December 2009. He descends from Francis WEST and Margery REEVES through their son Samuel WEST, born 1643 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts, died in 1689 in Duxbury. Samuel married Tryphosa PARTRIDGE in 1668 in Duxbury. Tryphosa, daughter of George PARTRIDGE and Sarah TRACEY, was born about 1642 in Duxbury, and died 1701 in Duxbury. Samuel WEST was a brother of Dr. Thomas WEST, the ancestor of the other members of this group.
  W243 and W246 were added to this group in June 2010. W243 had identified his oldest ancestor as Robert WEST, born 1810 in Massachusetts, prior to the DNA test. Robert married Cynthia A. SMITH.
    W246 descends from George A. WEST, born 1844 in Indiana. He married Sarah Elizabeth BARRETT.
    W308 was added to this group in March 2012.
    W333 was added to this group in March 2013.
    W335 was added to th is group in March 2013.


  West Family Group 20

    W76 and W105 match on 34 of 37 markers, with a genetic distance of 5. They descend from Francis WEST, born about 1631, England, who married Susannah SOULE. W76 probably descends from Francis' son Francis WEST, and W105 descends from William WEST, another son of Francis.
   W126 was added to this group on 26 January 2007. He descends from Clement WEST, youngest son of Francis WEST and Susannah SOULE.
   W141 descends from Richard WASTE, son of Francis WEST/WASTE. The WASTE spelling was retained in his line to the present generation.
   W233 was added to this group in January 2010. He descends from Francis WEST/WASTE and Susannah SOULE through their son Francis WEST/WASTE who married Sarah Meakins MILLARD. We now have DNA representing 4 of the 5 known sons of Francis WEST and Susannah SOULE.
   W232 was added to this group in February 2010. He descends from Francis WEST and his wife Susannah SOULE thruough William WEST, born 1681, married Jane TANNER.
   W236 was added to this group in February 2010. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was Edward Theron WEST, born 1852 in Elburn, Kane County, Illinois, died in 1921 in Adaza, Greene County Iowa. Edward married Sara Francis ELLIS.
   W234 was added to this group in May 2010. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was Nathaniel P. West, born 1842-45 in Maine and died in 1910 in LaCrosse County Wisconsin. Nathaniel married a widow, Catherine Anne STAAB HICKS, she was born in 1854 and died in 1929.
   W266 was added to this group in June 2010. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA test was Clement WEST, born 1760 in Dutchess County, New York, and died in 1840 in Richland, Ohio. Clement married Prudence DAILY.
   W351 was added to this group in August, 2013. His DNA test was at Ancestry, so we have 26 markers to compare with those who tested at Family Tree DNA. He matches others in FG20 on all 26 markers. The oldest ancestor of P351 prior to the DNA test was John C. WEST, born 1845 in Kentucky, died 1915 in Vigo County, Indiana. His wife was Jane T. PEDIGO.

   DNA testing has resolved the question of whether Francis WEST who married Margery REEVES (West Family group 19) is related to the Francis WEST who married Susannah SOULE. The DNA evidence tells us those two men are probably not related, thru the direct paternal line, within a genealogical time period.
     There has been conjecture that Francis WEST was the son of Matthew WEST, and brother of Bartholomew WEST. A DNA test of a descendent of Bartholomew has been completed (W154), and that DNA profile does not match the DNA of the descendents of Francis WEST/Susannah SOULE. Until additional information is found, this group is assuming that Francis was not a son of Matthew WEST.

  West Family Group 21

    W06 and W120 match on 66 of 67 markers. W06 descends from Francis WEST born 1725/6 in New Kent County Virginia, died 1799 in Amherst County VA. His wife was Elizabeth BRANSFORD.   W120 had circumstantial evidence linking him to Francis WEST, but had one generation that could not be documented through genealogical records. The DNA test has confirmed that W120 shares a common ancestor with W06, and that ancestor is probably Francis WEST.
    W353 was added to this group in December, 2013. He descends from John WEST born about 1795-1800 in North Carolina. He married Barbara Jane HOOSIER (or VANHOOSIER), born 1798. John's date of death has not been found. The last record of him was the 1840 census of Fentress County, Tennessee. His wife and children were living there without him in the 1850 census.
     Our last three groups, 19, 20, and 21 all have a Francis WEST as their earliest known ancestor. Each group has a genetic distance of at least 8 from the other 2 groups.  DNA testing has allowed us to separate these lines into groups that are probably not related within a genealogical time.


  West Family Group 22

    W115 and W144 have a genetic distance of 5 on 37 markers. This genetic difference is a little greater than expected. They both trace their genealogy to Eastern Virginia before 1800. W115 descends from John WEST, who was governor of Virginia 1635-37. The oldest ancestor of W144 is Charles WEST, born about 1788 in Eastern Virginia, died 1873.
