My brick wall is Francis R. West b. 1816 in Marcellus, Onondaga, New York.He lived in Ingham Co., he had two daughters live in Jackson Co. and many descendants in Port Huron, St. Clair Co. Family names for males have many Francis R, Benjamins and Elmer. I have all the Michigan census, his civil war schedule, death certificates of children with his name as well as being witness at his daughter's wedding. He was a cabinet maker. I strongly believe he is related to family of Sussanah Sanford and Francis West b. 1774 because photo of David West has such a strong resemblance to my father.I believe David West might be his brother or a cousin. In Lansing directory 1873 David West, Frank West and F.R. West all lived in Lansing.
