1790 Census

South Carolina: Recorded all 33 West households. Download, Part 1 and Part 2

1820 - Georgia

Searched for James West in Georgia. He probably lived in Georgia before moving to Alabama by 1830. All his census records report his b as Georgia, but on his homestead application, he reported being born in South Carolina. We found two James Wests in Georgia, as well as a Jonathan West adjacent to one of the James.

The Carolinas also need to be searched.
