  1. I am a descendant of
    Jarod Westberry
    William Fennon Westberry
    Riley Mitchell Westberry

    I saw the old website years ago and sent in some updates on Riley Mitchell and his children, including my father.
    That information seems to be missing from this site. Do you still have the old info? Can I get access to it.
    As I remember, in certain sections, there were stories that had been passed down.

    i have some new info on the Bohannon family . Benjamin Bohannon was the father of Pearlie Bohannon was was married to RIley Mitchell. The Bohannons are buried in the same cemetary in Statenville as the Westberrys.

    I will be delighted to contribute whatever I can both informationally and monetarily. Please be kind enough to respond as you have time.

    I thought all of our history was lost when the old website went down, I am most appreciate and grateful for all of the effort you have put into this new site.

    Rev Moses Westberry
    Jarod Westberry
    James Madison and James Robert Westberry
    Christopher C. Westberry (James Robert)
    Maud Westberry (James Madison) yes they were 2nd cousin
    James Columbus (Parents are Christopher C. and Maud)
    I helped Charles Westberry with some family history, Riley Mitchell was James Columbus 1st cousin.
    I wish the web site had been kept up, there was alot of family info on there.
