Sounds very familiar.I'm decended from Edward's second marriage to Almira Etta Gehr. He's my GGGrandfather. My Grandma wrote up a lot of family tree stuff.She handwrote some information about his first marriage To Docia A. Whorley.I have a picture containing his children(as adults) from both marriages on my computer.I noticed the kids from the second marriage appear really long compared to the kids from the first,... which makes me wonder if your Docia may have been shorter.I will check the writings about Docia when I find the family tree stuff again.Edward was also married a third time, you may know this.Having two wives die must have been hard. Her name was Anna Henzel.I have a picture of her. He had no children with her.She was loved by Edward's kids.She cared immensely for him in his last days.
My frustration(along with others) is finding anything on Peter West(Edward's Dad), besides him living in Canada and being a Loyalist.
