I\'m a descendant of the many \"John Wests\" of 17th and 18th century Virginia. I\'m looking for a book titled \"The West Family of Stafford County, Virginia\" by Thomas Spalding, March 1996. When I search for this book online the first return I get is your web site. Do you know where I can get a copy of it or a link to it? Thanks

Researching Sarah Ann Owsley, b.1832 Missouri; daughter of Willis Owsley (& his wife Temperance Brown) of Kentucky. Sarah was married to Ralph Baptist Leavenworth, who died in 1865. Remarried to a Mr. Moore and widowed by the age of 38, she moved to the Bronx, New York City, by 1870 with her five daughters.

The youngest, Margaret Daisy Moore, age 14, died in 1883 and is buried in Woodlawn (Bronx) Cemetery with a large obelisk carved \"OWSLEY;\" no other surname.
(Three generations are buried there, none named Owsley. Her grandson, (b.1891, d.1900) was named Henry Owsley Brown.)

I cannot believe that Sarah had the money to pay for such a grand monument for her daughter, or that she would move across country from Missouri to NYC without knowing anyone who could help her.

I wonder if there was an OWSLEY relative that helped her finance it or who lived in the metropolitan area there.

Kindly help me if you are able. As with all researchers of ancestors, I have grown very close in spirit to the Owsley family and the descendants.
Thank you.

John Owsley (1581 - 1651) appears to be my 10th great grandfather. I have traced my family history through the Sullivan\'s and Kent\'s to Thomas Owsley, Stafford, Virginia, USA, and eventually to John Owsley.

I am seeking additional information, documentation, and validation of what I have found. Any additional assistance will be appreciated. If I can be of assistance I will do my best to help.

I lived in Alexandria, Virginia, USA, before retiring and walked on the land of my ancestors without that knowledge until recently. I look forward to learning more.

Ann West Owsley was my 6th great grandmother. She was married to Edward Garrett II. This site is fascinating, although I\'m a bit confused on who Ann\'s mother was now. I had thought that her mother was Ann West, daughter of John Elder West, but that looks like it would make her and Thomas half-siblings if I\'m reading correctly.

If you can help with this confusion, please let me know.

Thank you for sharing all of this wonderful work!
