From Eudora West:

I'm glad I recognized your e mail address or I might not have looked at your page. I am not related to anyone in Toccoa. I was born in Barbour County, AL, grew up in Albany, GA, and moved here in 1989. I do have a son John West, but not the Jon West here.

I am very interested in finding Jesse's ancestors. He is as far back as I know. I am just beginning researching this line. I have been working on Lees, Jernigans, and Parmers. I have been to the LDS library in Atlanta and plan to return soon. They have great genealogical information.

I do have another child listed for Jesse and Mary. Annie is Phoebe Ann Vickers Wright. The one not listed is Lonie who married a Craddock. I don't have any more facts than you do on their children other than my grandmother. But I do plan to get this.

Mamie Eudora Vickers b. 23 May 1880, d. 23 September 1963, buried in Belcher Bethel Baptist Church Cemetary in Barbour County. She married Lehman Augustus Lee 27 Nov 1903. Lehman born 27 March 1877, died 12 Aug 1943.

I am in the process of sending data sheets to my cousins so that I can get the information I need. Wish me luck. My Uncle Hilton (the only living child) has the Lee family bible. When I return to Albany, I am going to look at it closely.

I recently went to Barbour Co. and went to several cemetaries. I need to go back and go to Henry Co. cemetaries.

If I ever complete this task, I will send you an update. Meanwhile, share any data you have on the older Vickers. I hope you can understand my method of recording these relatives. If you can't, I will try to do better. (Like drive across town and give you a hard copy)
