I originally thought Thomas WEST (1630 – 1674) was Alex’s 10th Great Grandfather; one of 2,048 in this generation of the Shaw line. However, I now think that Thomas’ one time granddaughter Dorothy COLBY was not the daughter of Anthony COLBY II, as I first thought, but instead was the daughter of his cousin Isaac COLBY and Martha PARRATT.
Thomas West was born in 1630 in Suffolk, England. He married Mary [__?__]. Thomas died 16 Apr 1674 in Salem, Essex, Massachusetts.
Another Thomas West was born 1629 in England. He died 23 Dec 1720 in Bradford, Essex, Massachusetts. Thomas married Phebe Waters on 11 Oct 1658 in Salem, Essex, Massachusetts. Phebe Waters was born in 1634 in Salem, Essex, Mass. She died 16 Apr 1672 in Salem, Essex, Mass.
A third Thomas West was born in 1630 in Bradford, Massachusetts. He died 23 Dec 1720 in Bradford, Essex, Mass. He married Mary Tenney 14 Aug 1674 in Salem, Mass. Mary Tenney was born 24 Sep 1646 in Rowley, Essex, Mass. Mary died 12 May 1731 in Bradford, Essex, Mass.
