There was a George Westgate who came to MO from IL around 1870 and settled in the town of Linneus, Linn Co.. He had a son, George who was born around 1879. Could this possibly be him? We are getting ready to travel to IL to visit with a Westgate descendant. Are there any names on the pictures? His mother would have been Janette (Janet) Cochrane. She was born in Scotland. It looks like the first George married a second time. In the 1920 census, he is married to a Lucy. George's father was Abner Durfee Westgate and mother was Lavina Waterman. It appears they were born in RI.
