I have some limited information about your Susan West. She isn't my direct ancestor so what I have was handed down to me from other researchers.

Susanah West was b. 8 Dec. 1823 in Moyock, Currituck Co., NC. She married Frances Morse in about 1845

Her father was Willoughby West, b. 1753 in Gibbs Woods, Currituck Co., NC. and died on 11 Aug. 1840 in Currituck Co.

Her mother was Elender (Nelly) Flora. Nelly's brother (I think) William Flora (b. abt 1860) married Willoughby's sister Lurany West. Nelly died in about 1845 in Currituck Co.

Willoughby and Nelly were married sometime around 1804. I find this a bit late in life, but it fits with the dates of the births of their children.

Susanah had six siblings: Willoughby Jr., Elizabeth, Elender, Nelly, Nancy, and Edward.

Willoughby West Sr., is the son of my ggggg grandfather Joshua West Sr., b. abt 1725 in Currituck Co., NC or Princess Anne Co., VA. He married a woman named Sarah ???? and had 12 children. I have a copy of his will naming them.

I have a lot more on this family if you'd like to email me directly at

Hope this helps,
