Hello. Do you have any dates that might be helpful in the search? BMD? - Birth, Marriage, Death? Children's names? Birthplaces? Every little bit of information makes it easier to find information. Thanks!

Well, I think this family is the one (haven't yet found either of their parents; harder without birthdates):

1920 US Federal Census

Name Age
Edward D West 36
Nancy West 30
Edith West 12
Aden West 10
Earl West 8
Coleman West 6
Noel West 4
Gavin West 3
Gracie West 2
Howard West 0

...Which would make his birthdate approx. 1884, and her birthdate approx. 1890.

This is the correct family. Thank you!  My father was Coleman West.

If Nancy lived in Mississippi as a child this could be her family and birthdates coincide with other researcher's information. I found this on another free site: FamilySearch.org I am pretty sure this is the correct Nancy since it is the same county you listed.

This is my maternal grandmother's family.  Thank you.
I am no longer anonymous.  Nancy E Guthrie and Edward "Ed" West are my paternal grandparents.  I have more information sent to me by my cousin but don't have it posted.  I am Ruth Elizabeth West Bailey Clark, daughter of Lawrence Coleman West and Velma Viola McLain.  I have more information to add as soon as I can.
