Surname Saturday - Westover
The Westover line has a very long history. Jonas Westover from England, married November 19, 1663 in Windsor, Connecticut and there is quite a bit of information on this line. However, my more direct line left Connecticut around 1735 for western Massachusetts, then on to Quebec.
My Westover names on RootsWeb total over 900. My direct lines are in All Caps. For my American and Canadian ancestor, mentioned above, I have 18 sources for Moses Westover. I even have a Google alert on the name Westover + obituary. However, I am not actively searching for more information on this family, but will analyze anything that drops in my lap. Over the years, about 25 people have contacted me and information was exchanged.
In future blogs, I will provide more information, including cemetery stone photos.
Note: Since this early post, I have written quite a few posts pertaining to the Westover line, including a will.
