The earliest record I have of Surname West is when my 2nd My 2nd great grandmother Mourning West b. 25 Dec 1831? Missouri? Arkansas? Tennessee? or somewhere else. married Thomas Jefferson Pope 6 Sep 1849 at age 16 in Washington County Fayetteville Arkansas. I don't know where her Cherokee parents were born, maybe Georgia their first names and they might have had Cheorkee names. I have a copy of the marriage certificate, and a newspaper article that mentions Indian Girl, Mourning West and the Wagon Train when they came to California. There are a lot of Cherokee West Surnames. I don't have a clue who her parents or family were. The picture and Newspaper Article are there http://ancestryamerica.net contact information is there
