Hi Ila. Would be more than happy to share my West line info. The line actually goes back to Lord De La Warr whom I didn't know until research was a West. I've also found where the original name was DeGaste in the 12th century.

Hi, Ila-

At this time, I cannot confirm that our Jonathan Woodsons are a match. The only comparison we have in common is the DOB year. If you have any further info, please re-contact me. Can you advise how he places in your family lineage? Thanks. Dale Brewer

Dear Ila,

I see that you have added an unmerged match with Thomas Green(e), son of Joseph Green. Thomas was born prior to the American revolution and his father, Major Joseph Green(e), fought for the British as part of the first battalion of Delancey's Brigade. Joseph was granted land in the area of Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada, in 1783. His wife's family (Flewellings) were granted land near Fredericton. Thomas owned land in Carleton County, NB, in 1810. Can you confirm that part of your family is from Canada?

You wrote to me re: Jesse E Swain -

My gedcom file has not been integrated so we cannot compare these people. I have a Jessie Elmo Swain, no vital stats. I have him marrying Ida May Spencer and a child, Florence Geneva Swain. Forence Married my first husband's father, Earl Monroe Lane. Florence was born 4/24/1907 in New Albany, Mississippi and died 7/31/1940, location unknown.

My response:

I do not know who he married.

One possibility is below from a 1940 census record:

Name: Jessie E Swain Spouse: Orea Lee Swain Children: Paul Swain Birth: abt 1872 in Mississippi Residence: 1 Apr 1940 in Pontotoc, Mississippi, United States

Other than the above, I have no clue.
