COUSIN QUEST: THE FAMILY OF HIRAM FERDINAND WEST

This is the next in a series of posts on the descendants of
John Cutter West and Arvilla Ames West that I hope will
lead to contact with other West descendants.

Hiram Ferdinand West was the fourth son and sixth child
of John and Arvilla. I had less information to start with on
this branch of the family than the others so far but Ancestry
was very helpful with census records:


1. Hiram Ferdinand West (b.18 Nov 1838-Letter "b" Township,Upton,Oxford,Me;
d.Feb 1914)

3. Cleaveland R West (b.9 Jul 1892;d.Aug 1963)

3. Annie E. West (b.1903)

to meet more!

I have the death dates of Hiram and Arvilla from Maine vital records. Hiram died 26 Jan. 1914 in South Rumford, aged 76 years, 2 months 8 days. Arvilla died 31 Dec. 1937 in Rumford, aged 90 years, 10 months, 16 days. They are supposedly buried in East Rumford Cemetery, though I haven't confirmed this.

Thanks Chris. I was going by so family records for Hiram but apparently I confused Arvilla Mary Ballard with
her mother in law Arvilla Ames West who died in 25April 1907 when I was entering the information.

Thanks again!
