Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in West, Thomas, born Louisiana, 1845 + or - 5 years, died Texas. Looks like his daughter Delaney was named after his mother. There are others working on this line. One gives names of parents. So, I went back in and entered West, Willis, spouse Delaney and found even more.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
