I haven't been on this site in years. I read your post, just curious if you would want to share who the descendant is you went to visit in IL. I have several relative in the IA, IL area including a sister in Chicago. My Grandmother and a cousin just went to visit them last month. I live in Oregon where my father Lewis (born in IL) lives, my Grandmother, and two of my sisters all Westgates. I also have a sister in Orlando. I have a huge family of Westgates scattered all around the country. My Grandmother has a ton of photos dating way back, some before the turn of the century..ooops we just had a turn of the century...I mean the one before this last one. I want to start trying to put the missing pieces together again.
