Elder Miles West was my 4x great-grandfather via his son James. Supposedly Miles was born in Halifax, Virginia in 1771 but I haven't found any documentation to substantiate that. He married Lucy Parker in Halifax (there is a formal record of that) and they moved to Smith County, TN around 1804. Robert/Robin died in Jonesboro, TN before the rest of the party settled in Smith County. I have tried any lead I could find to learn more about Robert/Robin West but have been unsuccessful. I have the book titled What's In A Name by Hoke Holland West and have found very little about Robert in that publication as well. If you happen to come across any information, please share and I'll do the same.
