Karen, I think the problem is the highlighted "<ref></ref>".
(A partial quote from the profile:)
"and would make him about 104 years old, the at the time of his death on December 1, 1830.
<ref></ref>That makes it easier to believe that perhaps the John West who died in Newberry South Carolina at about 104 was the subject of this profile. It was reported that he was the head of many of the West families over a wide area"
There should be something between the two ref tags. You probably need to delete the two tags,unless you have a citation to put between them.
