Hello,Michael! I will try and help you has much as I can.We need to start where your your Parents,Grandparents,& Great Grandparents from and what are their names? I see that you are from Roanoke,Va.. I met a Michael Vest who was a photographer and had his business in the mall at one time. I don't know if he is still there or not. Could that Mike Vest be you? He told me and my Mother that my Mother favor one of his relatives at the time we met and this had been years ago. If you would send me your family names and all of what you know or any photos you have of them would be a big help. The Vest family as I know is a very large family and they are all over the United States. Please send your family info to me at email@example.com and I will try to help in any I can. There is going to be a Vest Family reunion on July 25th,2009 at Glen Maury Park in Buena Vista,Va.You and your family are more than welcome to come. Waiting to hear back from you.
