<>Some Desc. of Alfred Westbrook & Sarah Wise


My G G. grandfather Alfred Westbrook was born in Fauquier County, VA, 1813 and died
in Licking County, OH, Oct. 20, 1887.   He married Sarah Wise 20 March 1837 in Belmont County,
OH.  Sarah died  2 Oct 1875 and Alfred married Matilda Armstrong 29 Nov. 1885.  They (Alfred
and Sarah) are both buried in Washington County OH.  Matilda is buried in Licking County.
Incidentally, Matilda was my husband's g.grandmother and we didn't know she had married my g.g.
grandfather until I started this research.  Small world, huh?

In my g.grandfather, Lemuel J. Westbrook's obit, it lists a sister, Mrs. P.E. Boyd living in the state of
Wisconsin. That was in 1906. (P.E. for Phoebe Elnora. Actually they lived in St. James, Missouri at that time.)

In my g.grandfather's brother, John H. Westbrook's obit, lt lists a sister, Mrs. Nora Boyd, of Peru,
Indiana. That was in December of 1941. My great grandmother Phoebe Elnora Westbrook went by
"Nora" all of her life.

I do have a photo of Lemuel J. Westbrook who was a prominent grocer here in Licking County and owned
a lot of property.

I would love to share what I have with you and am interested in what you have.  If you want to send me your
snail mail address, I will make copies of obits, etc. and data and send to you.   It is really too much to send
via e-mail.
