Here I will list the West that I have found. For the people that are still living I will not put in birthdates or any private info. This work is ongoing and I have lots yet to get on here.
All my info is in gedcom format. Go to rootsweb.com and search for any of these names . You can then download the file, or contact me and I will email it to you.

This sheet of the census is very hard to read to I spelled names as they appear to be spelled on the census. Now I have a new place to look for them as I did not know they were living in Wood county .
 
Thanks to my cousin, Robin who lives in Parkersburg, we now have a death cert for Icie:
     She died 1-15-1931
     She was 37 yrs old
     Cause of death: Anemia
     Place of death: Wood Co. Wva

I will start with me , and see where we end up.....

Some of my info is suddenly not looking right so I put it here anyway,but will work on it. 12/29/01  I visited the Nobe Cemetery in March of 2002 and did not find Jeremiah and Ice. So now I have to find where they are buried. I just came across some info that does not jive whith mine. According to census records my info is correct, but til I prove it , it may be wrong. I would hate to think I was wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. But will work on it to be sure. But as of now my info is correct....

NOTE:::::: My name , Ilet was given to me because my dad said his mother's name was Ilet. I have yet to prove this...

My dad , Ralph , fought in the second world war in France. He told my mother that once he got home he would never leave his United States again! He served from 1943 til 1945 in the army. As soon as his military records get here I will put them here. Louise 12/18/01

Once again this is my dad, Ralph West
