The information below is an addition to the WEST family genealogy. It
lists the children of Martha E. "Mattie" WEST and Leander LYNN. I notice
that the WEST family genealogy only included two of their nine children.
Much of my information was obtained from talks with the family about 30 years ago. I also used Thomas Dillingham, obituaries, tombstone photographs, and other resources.
My information for the proper spelling of Almira and her surname, SIDEN, came from the WEST family website. Family members only knew that her first name was Almira. I had spelled it Elmira. They did not know her surname.
I do not have the name of the aunt and uncle that raised "Mattie." Does anyone know who that was?
