From the FIRST MATE's


Thomas West, Sr. is the farthermost back on my West line that any of us researching this line has been able to reach. One of his sons, Ignatius West (mentioned in this document) was born in Granville County, North Carolina in 1750. We have militia records showing Thomas in Granville Co., NC in 1752 and deed records (as a witness) in 1754; and, thereafter, the records are showing his moves into several counties formed out of Granville Co. with absolute documentation that he is the same Thomas West in each of his moves. He moves to Orange Co. and then Chatham County is formed from Orange.

This photo is of Ignatius West's Administration Bond on the Estate of Thomas West, Sen. at Feby Sessions 1808. Thomas West, Jr. (born before 1744) is my ancestor who removed to northeastern Christian County, Kentucky about the time of his father's death.
