Need help with this couple - Levi and Laura West

+4 votes
I have been hitting a wall trying to get beyond this couple in my research.  I've basically posted all that I know on the profile for Levi West.  I have no idea who his parents were (I thought it was Ezekiel West and Lucy Weaver) but I think that is incorrect.  I also don't know Laura's maiden name for sure, but it could possibly be Archer.  I can't find anything on them prior to a 1850 Census.  I'd appreciate any help.  I have tried to provide as much up-to-date info on this couple and their children.  In advance, thank you!

Frank - thank you for this, but I have this census info on Levi's profile already.  I have the info below as well.  I tried to spell out everything I have on the profile page and then the relations as I know them as well.
