A Benjamin West descendant took the FTDNA Y-Chromosome test in 2007. In
the West Family DNA Project, he is a member of Family Group #5, descended
from Judah West (b. 1765). Judah West was the great-grandson of Benjamin
West (b. 1665). We did not know the link to the Middletown First Settlers
until I did the research for our West Family study group.
I had some email communication with Reg Bacon this last summer. To read
about Benjamin West, and his ancestors and descendants:http://westproj.blogspot.com/search/label/Benjamin%20West
Your ancestor is mentioned in the article.
I am completing my year-long study of this West family with a final
article this month, on Judah West. I am not the descendant--in fact, my
husband is in West Family Group #5, but not through Benjamin West. What we
do in our study group is help out other West Family Group #5 participants
who have hit their brick walls. It's just by happy synchronicity that I
have done this research. The participant does not want to be identified.
Very best wishes,
West DNA Family Group #5 Project
