I have Westphal's in my line who lived in Whiteside County, IL (north of Rock Island). Have seen the name John Westphal several times in Rock Island County GenWeb postings.
Do you know if your John Westphal was from Schleswig-Holstein, Germany?My g-g-grandfather, Emil Westphal was from Holstein, and I believe he had brothers who settled in the NW Illinois area.
I'll keep you posted re: John Westphal listings elsewhere.
