Am seeking information on part of my Mother's family. The surname is Vander West. My Grandfather's brother moved to Muskegon 60 or more years ago. I am seeking information on that side of the family. My Grandfather's parents were Abel Vander West and Anna Vander West. They both died in Laketown in 1897. I am in receipt of a copy of a letter from Paul Wayne Johnson which states that he ran across information about this side of the family while searching for information on his other side of his family. Mr. Johnson lived at 919 W. Forest in Muskegon, Mi. The letter is dated May 17, 1977. I had tried reaching this gentleman, but to no avail. He may not even be living at this time. Anyone with any information on the Vander West family of Muskegon or anyone who is related to Paul Wayne Johnson may have the information I seek. Thank you..
