I'm looking for any additional information on the family of John WEST and wife Susannah, of Jefferson county, IN.

From a variety of sources (including personal correspondence with D. Coglas, K.Skorich), I have learned that
John West was born in 1748; he died about 11 Aug 1833 in Jefferson county, IN, where his will was published.
He married to Susannah about 1768, probably in Cumberland county VA--[maiden name Robinson?]. Their children were all born in VA. In the early 1800s they loved to Indiana, where West pruchased land in 1811.

Their children were:
1) John T. married Ursley Brenton 25 Jan 1831 Jefferson county IN
2) Nancy born c1771 Spotslyvania VA, married Thomas GLOVER (my line)
3) James born 1773
4) William Wesley (bought land from James in 1830)
