Reader mine, as can be readily seen by previous posts, my roots are in 
South Carolina.  They go back to 1654 when the first Wesbury set foot in 
this country.
However, the branches went all whichaways, with the main man, Rev. Moses 
Westberry Sr,  going to Georgia in about 1800.

one loom and gears, one cupboard and furniture, four iron potts, two tables
