Maybe it was too long.I do have info about Absolom Madden West and his parents.Actually, I have more about his ancestors.He was born in AL in 1818, married Caroline Glover. His parents: Anderson West/Celia Tubb. Anderson's parents: Isaac West/Susanna Anderson. Both of the latter are buried in Saron Cem.,Holmes Co.,MS.Celia died at home of her daughter Minerva West Lockhart in Durant, Holmes Co., MS. So happy to help. E-mail me.
