Amanda E West:

Notes:

!NOTES:I am of the *opinion* that Amanda E. West (1877) is a child of James E. West & Nancy Talitha Hogland. I can't prove the connection however. Consider the facts:

1. Amanda is a West as proven by her marriage record and the death certificates of three of her four children (the fourth died before D/C's were required).

2. Amanda is buried at Panther Creek Cemetery as are James & Nancy West, all the Wests in that cemetery are part of their family.

3. If Amanda's birth date is correct (22 Mar 1877 per T/S), then she should be listed on the 1880 census. James and Nancy are in Buncombe Co,. NC in 1880 but everyone in the house is listed by initial only. There is an E. M. age 3 who could be her. Amanda's middle initial is "E" (per marriage record) and "M" could be for "Mandy" a common nickmane for Amanda.

4. None of the above totally proves the connection, but I think it is sound.
