Notes
a. Note:   From Ann Logan: "Amos' birth is not recorded, but in a court deposition in a Berkshire Co. MA court (10 May 1813) he lays claim to part of John Westover's land, and names him as his father. Amos had Loyalist leanings during the Revolutionary War, and he left Sheffield sometime between 1784 and 1790, when he is first found in Canadian records. Two of his brothers, Moses and John, and their families went north with him to Canada. Their lives in Mississquoi and later Brome Co. Quebec are well documented in the "Lower Canada Land Petitions" as they requested and documented their claims for land based on their loyalty to the Crown. The Westovers were granted land in Sutton Township, Brome Co., Quebec just north of the Vermont border. Land records show that Amos was still in Quebec in 1804 when he appears as a witness to a cousin's land transaction in Dunham, but by 1810 the Amos Westover family was living in Burlington, Chittendon Co., Vermont, where they are recorded in the 1810 U.S. Federal Census. However, in 1811-12, Amos was back in Dunham, petitioning for Crown land then leasing it. The year 1813 finds Amos back in Sheffield trying to lay claim to some of his father's land. Whateer the outcome of these land dealings, the next mention in the records finds the family living in Hartford Township, Licking Co., Ohio at the time of the 1820 U.S. Federal Census. As recorded in the Beal family bible, Amos died Oct 3, 1821 and Ruth died Sept. 14, 1821, perhaps in Licking Co. or perhaps in Champaign Co., Ohio, where two of their children, Olive and Alexander, married into the Beal family." -------------- From Wayne Westover (March 2011) bawayne@comcast.net "Amos Westover, another son of John Westover, Sr, and brother of Job and John Jr., married Ruth Loomis and went west to Ohio via Burlington, Vt. Their son, Alexander Westover, married Electra Beal and started another generation of Westovers in that State. Their son, Charles Westover was born in Licking, Ohio on November 25,1827. He was baptized by Apostle Erastus Snow in the spring of 1848 and crossed the plains in Captain Brigham Young’s Company. On the trip he met Eliza Ann Haven and they married and settled in Salt Lake City. He had a second wife, Mary Shumway."
