George Soule Sixth Generation – Joseph West

The Mayflower Society publications – Mayflower Families Through Five Generations pretty much stops at the fifth generation for George Soule. There are members of Soule Kindred working on additions to the ‘Fifth Generation’ and have three volumes in the ‘Sixth Generation working project’ however they haven’t worked their way to the children of Benjamin West and Elizabeth Smith yet.

Based on the research I have done using many different resources including “They came to Milton” on Rootsweb by Jon Saunders who has transcribed the records of the Seventh Day Baptist Church , I will continue the generations.

Joseph West – born 26 June 1790, 1793 or 1794 (depending which resource you use) in Grafton, Rensselaer County, New York. Joseph died 11 March 1832 in Verona, Oneida County, New York. The grave marker is inscribed 41 yr 8 mo 15 d. so I need to work on the dates to find the correct birth and death.


Joseph West married Mary Ann Brock ca. 1812 in Grafton, Rensselaer County, New York. Mary Ann Brock was born 21 April 1789 in Verona, Oneida County, New York and she died 20 Feb 1865 in Verona, Oneida County, New York.


Another reference to Joseph West is made by his son Joseph West in a family sketches project shown below:
