Hi Joe, There are several William WEST's but none born abt 1715 VA.Do you have a wife for him?This does not mean that he was not in the Revolutionary War...just that nobody has applied and been admitted to the DAR through his name!I also looked in ROSTER OF SOUTH CAROLINA PATRIOTS IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION and did not find him there either.Sorry!!! Good luck in your search... Mary
There is an entry in ABSTRACTS OF OLD NINETY-SIX AND ABBEVILLE DISTRICT WILLS AND BONDS - Pg. 442:
