You will find Gen. William Westmoreland's ancestry in the book "Pedens of America" the 1961 update by Lila Peden Sprouse. I can give you the contact to order the book if you wish. Gen. Westmoreland spoke at one of the Peden reunions in SC back in the 70's I believe it was. This is the ancestry I know:
James Riley Westmoreland - Rebecca Esque Peden | John Andy Westmoreland - Margaret Ann Barbara Rush | James Ripley Westmoreland - Eugenia Tally Childs | Gen. William Childs Westmoreland
I would be interested to know your connection to Gen. Westmoreland. I am doing the next update to the Pedens of America book slated for 2010 and would like to add the descendants that you know that is not in the book.
