Margaret West of Wayne Co. KY to Johnson Co., MO

My great great great grandmother was named Margaret West. From my research thus far, I have learned that she was most likely born in Wayne Co., KY in 1823. She may have also lived in Pulaski Co., KY. She moved (I assume with members of her family) to Missouri prior to 1842 and married William Ann Stephens (of Pulaski, Co., KY) in Johnson, Co., MO in 1842. Margaret (West) Stephens died in 1863 in Johnson Co., MO and was buried in Johnson Co., in Bethel Cemetery. Barksdale S. West was also buried at this cemetery but I do not know how the two were related.

In all of my research I have been unable to find out who Margaret's parents may be. I suspect she is somehow related to William West and Joshua West of Wayne Co., KY but I have no confirmation of this. I would appreciate any leads that anyone may have to help me.
