(Note: From The history of Upshur County, West Virginia, from its earliest exploration and settlement to the present time ...Published 1907 by W. Va., pref. in [Buckhannon] by William Bernard Cutright --------- REV. G. G. WESTFALL. Among the pioneers of Randolph, Upshur, Barbour and Harrison Counties is found the German name of Westfall (West-pha.). Their ancestors came to America from Germany, that portion known as the Westfallen, and later known as the District of Westphalia, and settled in the German settlements of Pennsylvania and then to the country to the south branch of the Potomac. In 1772, James Westfall and a large family of children and grandchildren, came from the south branch of the Potomac and settled in Tygarts Valley, selecting the site of the town of Beverly, and the sons settling in different portions of the country. This was at the time when Virginia was making the offer of exemption from taxation for fifteen years and 400 acres of land and a pre-emption to 1,000 acres more adjoining, if the settler built a log cabin on the land and raised a crop of corn. Here the Westfalls found and buried the bones of the Files (Foyles) family, whom the Indians had killed nineteen years before, ( 1753). Here also on the lands of Jacob Westfall was built the Westfall fort in 1774. Family tradition has it that Jacob Westfall, prominent in the early history of Randolph County as a member of the first county court, first sheriff, first county, leutenant of the militia and second county clerk, was a son of James Westfall, the hardy German pioneer, who settled at Beverly. The subject of this sketch was informed by his grandfather, the late Col. Watson Westfall, that Jacob was the father of Zachariah Westfall, who was a boy of seven when his father and grandfather came to the valley. But he does not know who Jacob Westfall's wife was before her marriage.

In 1788 Zachariah Westfall married Hanna Wolfe, an English girl, the daughter of the widow Wolfe. Later, after his father had moved to Kentucky, he left the valley and moved to Hackers Creek, Va., where he located a homestead. The children of Zachariah and Hannah (Wolfe) Westfall, were George, Clark, Owen, Elizabeth, wife of Jacob Cutright ; one daughter, the wife of Mr. Casto, one, the wife of Mr. Queen, and Ruth, the wife of John Warner, and Hannah, wife of Robert Love. George, the oldest son, was born in Randolph County, at the old Westfall homestead, on the 12th day of April, 1796, and at the age of twenty years, (1816), he was united in marriage to Ruhama Cutright, daughter of Abram and Susan (Bush) Cutright. The children of this union were: Watson, Martin, Eli, Oliver, Enoch, George, Fanny, Lydia, Rebecca and Celia. He was united in a second marriage to Ruhama Cutright, daughter of Isaac and Cutright. To this union one son was born. Perry. Watson, the eldest son, was born in Lewis County, Va.. in the year 1818, and at the age of twent-one years was united in marriage to Rachel Tenney, daughter of Samuel and Dorcas (Rohrbough) Tenney. The children of this union were : Jasper Newton, Samuel Tenney, George W.. Elizabeth, Granville Dayton, Oliver, Alvin B., Rebecca Ann and Catherine. Jasper Newton, the eldest son, was born in Lewis County. Va., on Turkey Run, at the Westfall homestead (now known as the Lewis Karrichoff farm), May 22, 1840. and in his twenty-first year was united in marriage with Jane Reese, daughter of Solomon and Elizabeth (Dooms) Reese, the pioneer Reeses who came to this county from Augusta County, Va., where Jane was born, October 31, 1838. This marriage was solemnized at the home of Solomon Ref on Hickory flats, by the late Rev. Alford Lister, of the M. P. Church, on the third day of Janury, 1861. Gen. Henry F. Westfall, of "Buckhannon" witness of this marriage. To this union were born eleven children : Cora Alice, born November 12, i861; Mary Elizabeth, born April 22, 1863; George Gideon, born August 4, 1864; Alonzo A., born December 6, 1865; Claudius LeRoy, born July 22, 1867; Lily Virginia, born March 27, 1869; Flora, born February 4, 1870; Charles Henry, born January 30, 1872; Ernest Jasper, born March 22, 1876; Ira Newton, born October 28, 1880; Mamie Jane, born May 10, 1884. George Gideon, eldest son of Jasper Newton Westfall, was born in Upshur County, W. Va., on the east side of the Buckhannon River, on lands then owned by the Rev. George Gideon Westfall, now of Beaver Falls, Pa., after whom he was named. He received his education in the free schools of the county, the old Academy of Buckhannon and the Spencerian Business College of Cleveland, O., at which place he also taught in the penmanship department. He began teaching in the public schools at the age of twenty-one, and taught for fourteen years. In 1894, on August 16, at the age of thirty, he was married by the Rev. E. R. Powers, of the M. E. Church, South, to Enmia Alice Hamrick, daughter of Levi and Claranda P. (Wamsley) Hamrick, of Blue Springs, Randolph County, W. Va., where Emma Alice was born, March 17, 1874.

(Note: There was disagreement among Westfall genealogists about the identity of the father of Zachariah Westfall who married Hannah Wolfe. Zachariah's grandson, Watson Westfall in the book passage above, is said to have named Jacob Westfall as the father. Authors of some of the county histories of West Virginia have claimed that Zachariah's father was James Westfall, supposedly one of the founders of the town of Beverly. While both of these claims are difficult to refute, the documentary evidence we have available to us today, support the conclusion that Zachariah's parents were Cornelius and Elizabeth Westfall, son and niece of Abel Westfall and Ann Bogard. I do not believe we will ever positively, beyond a doubt, identify the parents. The conclusive evidence just does not seem to exist. Regardless of the identity of Zachariah's parents, we can still be certain that he was a descendant, no more than five generations from the Dutch immigrant ancestor Jurien Westfall from Liederdorp, Netherlands. I believe that Zachariah Westfall was the son of Cornelius and Elizabeth Westfall from the Minisink village on the banks of the Delaware River in north western New Jersey. Zachariah was born on January 8, 1769 and baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church at Machackemeck, Orange County, New York on February 18, 1769. This is according to the baptismal records of the Dutch Reformed Church of New York. His parents brought him and his siblings to Augusta County, Virginia about 1771 when they settled on the South Branch of the Potomac River near where several other relatives from the Minisink in New Jersey had bought land in Virginia a decade before. When he was twenty years old Zachariah gave up his claim to ninety-five acres purchased by cousin Jacob Westfall (October 28, 1789). The land was part of the original grant to his grandfather Abel Westfall more than thirty years earlier. This original grant was located on the South Branch of the Potomac. This description covers a lot of area; however the location of the Westfall land has been identified as being a few miles south of Morefield in today's Hardy County, West Virginia. This document does not give us any clue as to the location of Zachariah in 1789 but it is likely that he still resided in the area of his grandfather's original plantation. Zachariah and his brothers, John, Cornelius and Isaac were my Westfall ancestors who settled in the area that became West Virginia. His brother Cornelius Westfall Jr. and his descendants (my ancestors) settled mostly in today's Lewis and Upshur counties. Isaac's sons were in Randolph and Harrison counties. Early in the nineteenth century, those counties included today’s Lewis and surrounding counties. The children of Zachariah and John seemed to, for the most part, ended up in today's Upshur, Lewis and Roane County.)

(1) Zachariah and Hannah (Wolfe) Westfall's son Andrew B Westfall was born February 17, 1789 in Harrison County, VA, and died Abt. 1850 in Jackson Co, VA (WV). He married 1st Mary Elizabeth Hyre November 11, 1809 in Harrison County, VA, daughter of John Hyre and Patience. She was born 1790 in VA, and died 7-16-1835 in Jackson County, WV. He married 2nd Mary Baker August 27, 1835. She was born Abt. 1789, and died abt. 1840. He married 3rd Mary Philips January 31, 1839. She was born abt. 1787, and died abt. 1843. Andrew came with his father and made the first improvements on the Skidmore Farm, at the mouth of Buffalo Lick. He later moved to Elk Fork in Jackson County, VA. His first wife died when his daughter, Barbara, was 5-6 years old, and he later moved his family onto a hill in the Flatwoods section of Elk Fork. After remaining there a few years, he bought a farm on Elk Fork, 1/2 mile from Folly's Mill.

George Washington Gandee's father Uriah Gandee Jr. was born September 2, 1782 and died in Roane County VA (WV) in 1855. He married Mercy "Massie" Hughes July 30, 1806. Mercy was a daughter of Jesse and Grace (Tanner) Hughes. She was born in Harrison County VA (WV) about 1787 and died in Roane County WV May 30, 1883. The family were the earliest settlers at present day Gandeeville, Roane County WV, arriving about 1824.

Mercy "Massie" Hughes's father Jesse Hughes (1750-1829) was a famous frontiersman, hunter, and scout who was an early settler in the western region of Virginia that became West Virginia and Kentucky. Jesse was born about 1750. He came to Hacker's Creek around 1769 from the South Branch Valley with a group of home seekers led by Samuel Pringle. In 1771 he married Grace Tanner, the daughter of one of the first settlers, and built his home on the ready cleared land of a former Indian village. But Jesse was not cut out for farming. By nature he was a woodsman and spent most of his time roaming the forests in search of game. Between him and his brother, Thomas, a supply of fresh meat was always kept on hand and in addition, Jesse acquired a knowledge of the surrounding territory which was later to be of inestimable value to the settlers from Bush's on the Buckhannon to Morgan's on the Monongahela.

Jesse's father, Thomas, who settled on Elk Creek, in what is now Harrison County, West Virginia, was killed by Indians two years later. The obdurate hatred of all Indians engendered in the the restless, half wild Jesse by this occurance, coupled with his uncanny ability as a woodsman, made him the scourge and dread and the pet hate of every Indian ventering into his vicinity. Jesse was of medium height, lean and wiry and possessed of an unmatched endurance, agility, and fleetness of limb. His countenance was fierce-as was his temper-with thin lip, a narrow chin, acqualine nose, and piercing restless eyes of an indefinable color between blue and grey. Jesse Hughes was noted for his hatred of Native Americans, and is said to have killed many in battle, and murdered several others. "He was as savage as a wolf, and he liked to kill an Indian better than to eat his dinner", said the wife of one of his descendants in 1902. Jesse Hughes and his family lived in a cabin on Hacker's Creek, near a stream that is now known as "Jesse's Run", located in present day Lewis County, West Virginia. Jesse Hughes is believed to have been one of the first American colonists to explore the Hughes River in West Virginia. It may have been named for him, or for others of the same surname residing in the area during roughly the same time period.

"Enoch Westfall, a son of George Westfall and a brother of Martin Westfall and a number of others, came to Truby's Run about 1880. He had two children, Preston and Lummie. His ancestors were among the earliest settlers in Upshur County. Preston married a sister of John Jones and lived for several years on Truby's Run; then he sold his farm and went to Ohio to live and there he has resided ever since. Lummie married John Jones and has always lived in the old home section." The above information about Enoch Westfall and his family is from a book "The History of Sago Community" Prepared By E. R. Grose - Here is some more information from the book about the Sago, Upshur Co., West Virginia community - "Sago has a very picturesque location. It is situated along the banks of a beautiful, clear, and swift running little river, called the Buckhannon, whose course is hemmed in by the hills on either side, and whose banks are lined, in many places, with the hemlock and the rhododendron, our state flower. In winter those plants often bend with masses of snow, and they, with the dashing waters and broken pieces of ice rushing against the rocks, which lift their heads above the waters, present a scene of beauty as fine as may be found anywhere. The county seat, called Buckhannon, is located six miles north on the same river."}

Granville Westfall's obituary -- OBITUARY - THE CHARITON HERALD - Chariton, Iowa - Thursday, December 24, 1891 - DIED - In West Virginia, Thursday, December 17th, 1891, Mr. Granville Westfall of Union township, this county, aged about 64 years. Thus, one by one, the pioneers of Lucas county are laid in their lonely graves to await the coming resurrection morn. Soon, the time will be here when those who came to fight the battle of life in this beautiful, ever home-like country of ours, will have passed away. Mr. Granville was one of the five first settlers of Union township. Sometime ago he went on a visit to his old home in West Virginia and while there he was taken sick and died. His son was sent for and was with him when he died. As soon as the remains arrive they will be buried at the family burying grounds near Last Chance.

The following we copy from the History of Lucas County, which refers to Mr. Westfall: "The first known permanent settlers in Union township were a Mr. Hamilton who located there in 1850, early in 1851 came H. Holmes, Mr. Fudge, S. B. Chapman, Granville Westfall and Bennett Robinson. These were all that lived in the township at that time, but just over the line in Clarke county, Mr. Alonzo Williams had previously located, and he afterwards changed his quarters into Lucas county, and is one of the oldest citizens of that neighborhood. Of the above named gentleman then lived in the township, Mr. Chapman is now taking his ease at his home in Derby. Messrs. Westfall and Williams are both prospering in agricultural pursuits. Mr. Chapman is a strong advocate of the doctrine of the greenback party, Mr. Westfall an ardent democrat, and Mr. Williams is an earnest republican. Thus the three survivors of the original settlers represent the three leading political parties. To make it more plain of his early settlement, his son informs us that he was the first child born to permanent settlers in Lucas county.

He was taken to his bed on April 6, 1930, and with the exception of a few days, has been unable to be up since that time. During these months he suffered much but bore it with patience and without complaint. Loving hands ministered to his wants and comforts and everything possible was done to alleviate his pain and restore him to good health, but the good Lord, who doeth all things well, saw fit to call him from earth.

For some time he was employed at the Joe L. Piper grocery store. He was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Encampment, the Rebekahs, and the Modern Woodmen of America. He was a splendid citizen, honorable and upright in all his dealings, of a genial and pleasant disposition, with a pleasant word for all with whom he came in contact. He was a kind and devoted husband, a good neighbor, and will be greatly missed in the home circle and in the community, and by a host of warm friends. He is survived by his wife and by three sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Martha Troutman and George Westfall, of Derby; Mrs. Frank Kyner and Mrs. Victoria Kyner, of Humeston; and Justin Westfall, of Alameda, California.

(Note: From - Pioneers of Jackson County - Part 3 - http://www.webroots.org/library/usahist/pojc0003.html ------ WESTFALL FAMILY -- Zachariah Westfall was another of the pupils in the first Buckhannon school, along with Thomas Carney and David Casto. He came from Hackers Creek to Mill Creek in 1827, and settled on Buffalo Lick Run of Tug Fork. (Perhaps he was a son of James Westfall, of Beverly.) He had several sons, among them Andrew, Owen, Clark, John, and George. Andrew Westfall came with his father, and made the first improvement at the Skidmore farm, at the mouth of Buffalo Lick. He later moved to Tug Fork. He married Mary Hyre, a sister of Jacob Hyre, Sr. Their children were: John H. Westfall, married Marinda Green, and lived on the head of Elk Fork. Noah Westfall, married a daughter of Old Davy Litton, and lived on Wolf Camp, later he married Martha Chancey, and built the first cabin where the late A. S. Chancey lived, near Reedy. Abraham Westfall, married Mollie Harper. He lived on the lower flat fork of Poca. James and Andy Westfall are said to be his sons. Susanna Westfall was born on the Buckhannon River, in 1815. She died in 1846, married Stephen, son of John Carpenter, of Lewis County. Their daughter, Lucretia J., married Samuel B. Hinzman. Rachel Westfall, moved west.

Katy Westfall, married John G. Casto, oldest son of George Casto, by his last marriage. Mary Westfall, married George, son of Uriah Gandee. Betty Westfall, married Calvary Chancey, on Reedy. They had two sons, Andrew and William, both in the Union Army, the latter was killed at a tobacco house raising at the place now owned by D. Wetter on "Dutch Ridge". Debby Westfall, married Henderson Harper. Lizbeth Westfall, married Isaac Rollins, whose second wife was a daughter of Captain Billy Parsons. Barbara Westfall was born August 26th, 1826, married Andrew Stewart, and lived at the Three forks of Reedy. Virginia Westfall, married Fielding Parsons, a son of George Parsons, of Trace Fork.

In 1772, James Westfall settled at the present site of Beverly. His son, George, married Roxhanna Cutright, and raised a family in Randolph County, probably a brother of Zachariah above. Andrew Westfall was a man of a good deal of local influence in his community, and like Nimod, was famous for killing the wild beasts of the forest. His wife died when Mrs. Stewart was but five or six years old, and later he moved his family onto a hill on the flatwoods of Elk. After remaining there a few years, he bought a farm on Elk Fork, one half mile above Tolleys mill. Clark Westfall, brother of Andrew, lived on Frozen Camp, about a mile from the mouth. He owned the Elias and Sam Parsons farm. He is described as a "school teacher and a good one, too". He taught in different little cabin schoolhouses, or vacant dwellings, during the 30's and 40's. Clark Westfall sold his farm to Charles Parsons in 1846, and moved "to the west". Granville Westfall, who married Captain W. W. Parsons widow, was his son.

Steven and Jacob Westfall, who settled on lower tug Fork, were sons of a brother of Zachariah. Jacob died unmarried. Steven moved to Elk before 1833. George Castos wife was his sister. Watt Rollins claims Stephen Westfall was a son of John Westfall. One of his sons, Isaac N. Westfall, born in 1841 and died in 1879, from the effects of a wound received at Cloyds Mountain. He married Catharine Tibble, daughter of James and Margaret Calbraith Tibble, of Athens County, Ohio. John B. Westfall, of Elk Fork, another son, was a carpenter and a noted athlete. Henry Knopp, of Mill Creek, relates that when he was a boy, Westfall built a new hewed log house for his father, George Knopp. This was considered at that time quite a fine residence, since, it has been weather boarded, ceiled, and painted, and is the same house in which Mr. Knopp now lives. When Westfall finished nailing on the roof, he threw his hatchet to the ground, and sticking his feet up into the air, walked along the comb of the building on his hands to the other end, where he could climb down.

There was a Job Westfall, one of the first settlers of Sherman District, Calhoun County. Peggy Westfall married Abe Litton. Jemima Westfall married first Richard Hite, and second Ches Tenney, who was killed in the Confederate Army. Ellen Westfall married William Green. John Westfall, of Lewis County, married Elizabeth Allman, and their daughter, Barbara Westfall, born 1829, married Isaac Montgomery, of Roane County, Manuel Westfall was killed by the Union soldiers with Andy Cottrill, on Spring Creek, above Spencer.)

(Note: The Manuel Westfall mentioned above that was killed by Union soldiers with Andy Cottrill, on Spring Creek, above Spencer was my great grandfather Emanuel B. Westfall Sr. (1828-1863), the father of my grandfather Jasper Mifflin Westfall (1857-1934).)

Here is some information about the history of Randolph County, West Virginia from a book about Randoph County -------- (Chapter III, Pioneer Period - History of Randolph County West Virginia)

ORANGE County, Virginia, was formed from Spotsylvania county in 1704 and was made to include all the territory West of the mountains. In 1744 that vast region was divided into the districts of Augusta and Frederick and was to be organized into counties as soon as they attained sufficient population. Monongalia was formed from part of Augusta in 1776; Harrison was formed from part of Monongalia in 1784 and Randolph from part of Harrison in 1787. In 1806 Randolph gave part of its territory to the formation of Tucker county. Randolph also contributed part of its territory along with other counties in the formation of Nicholas, Pocahontas. Upshur and Webster. Although settlement was made in the adjoining county of Pendleton in 1747. the first white men to visit the valley were Files or Foyle and Tygart or Taggart. in 1753. Foyle located his cabin in the present site of Beverly, a little north of the Baker Mill, near the mouth of the creek that bears his name Tygart selected a location farther up the river, on the west side, now the John D. Weese Brick House Place three miles from Beverly. Nothing is known of Tygart or Files that would throw light on their antecedents: however, the tide of emigration must necessarily have been from the east. The Tygart family and young Files departed from the county into Pendleton. These circumstances coupled with the fact that the name was probably Tag-art rather than Tygart and the Taggarts were among the first settlers of Pendleton and other eastern counties, the presumption is very strong in favor of the hypothesis that these families came into the valley from the settlements west of the Alleghenies. Perhaps. Files and Tygart were induced to push into the wilderness in pursuit of game. The fertile lands of the valley, also no doubt, were an inducement.

The difficulties in the way of procuring breadstuff for their families, coupled with the perception of the dangers from Indians on a remote and unprotected border induced Files and Tygart to a determination to abandon the valley. Before they carried their plans into execution Robert Files, wife and five children, the youngest of which was ten years old, were murdered by the Indians, who were returning from the South Branch to the country west of the Ohio. An elder son not being at home escaped, but being nearby heard the disturbance and approaching the house learned of the horrible fate of his relatives, and realizing the utter impossibility of giving any assistance, resolved to give warning to the family of David Tygart, a few miles up the river. Young Files and the Tygart family immediately abandoned the country. Withers says that Files and Tygart had discovered that their location was near an Indian trail and an Indian village. No Indian village existed in dangerous proximity. Mingo on Mingo Run, 32 miles above, had been many years before the site of an Indian village. However, it had been abandoned by the Mingoes many years previous to 1753. Their cabins were near the trail that entered the valley at Elkwater and Huttonsville and passed down the river on the east side, and thence up Leading Creek and over the mountain to Cheat river.

Tygarts Valley did not attract emigrants for a period of eighteen years after the disaster attending the efforts of Files and TVs art. In the meantime hunters from Greenbrier visited the valley and on their return gave a glowing description of the region to the settlements. These reports induced many settlers to seek homes west of the mountains and most of the level land in the valley was occupied by permanent possessors during the year 1772. Withers mentions among those who were first to occupy the valley the names of Hadden, Conley, Whiteman, Warwick, Nelson, Westfall, Riffle, and Stalnaker. Westfall found and buried the remains of the Files family. Settlements were made in what is now Lewis, Taylor and Harrison counties in the same year. The region that now comprises Upshur County had been the abode of John and Samuel Pringle since 1764 and by several other families since 1769. John and Samuel Pringle were deserters from the army at Fort Pitt and sought safety in the seclusion of the wilderness by ascending the Monongahela and making their abode in the trunk of a sycamore tree on the west fork of the Buckhannon, near the mouth of Turkey Run. They made visits to the South Branch for ammunition and their reports caused others to seek that section for settlement.

Duval, Wm. Lowther, James Anderson, Henry Delay, Nicholas Carpenter, John Powers, Thos. Chane, Jacob Westfall, Salathiel Goff and Patrick Hamilton. At the same term of the court Jacob Westfall and Patrick Hamilton were authorized to celebrate the rites of matrimony. Cornelius Westfall, Geo. Jackson, Edward Jackson, John Wilson and Robert Maxwell were recommended to the Governor as suitable persons to hold the office of Justice of the Peace. Jacob Riffle, John Currence and Matthew Whitman were appointed Constables.

At a court held at Clarksburg, September, 1784, Patrick Hamilton, Jacob Westfall, John Wilson, were appointed Captains of Militia.

At a Court held at Clarksburg, September 22, 1784, Jonas Friend was appointed a Surveyor of a Public Highway from his own house to Eberman's Creek. He was to collect tithables on Leading Creek, both side of the Valley River, up Eberman's Creek and across the river to Hezekiah Rosecrances, and to keep same in lawful repair. At a term of the Harrison County Court held at Clarksburg, September, 1784, Henry Petro was appointed Surveyor of a highway from Ebermans Creek to Jacob Westfall's Mill and tithables from said Creek upwards to Files Creek and William Smith's. Most of the litigation in the Harrison county court seemed to be between parties then living in that part of Harrison, now embraced in Randolph. The case of Cornelius Westfall vs. Joseph Donohue and Westfall & Crouch vs. Donohue, both cases of debt were at the September term 1784, dismissed as generally agreed. At the same term of the Court the following cases involving people living in the valley were disposed of: John Warwick, plaintiff, vs. Joseph Friend, defendant. Upon motion of the defendant that the plaintiff be nonsuited for failing to file his declaration, the court ordered the same to be nonsuited. Case of John Westfall vs. Benjamin Hornbeck, trespass, continued. Johnathan Smith vs. James Taffe, attachment. The attachment was dissolved and Thos. Wilmoth entered special bail for defendant and the common proceedings of law to issue. Declaration and plea of payment filed and rule for trial at March term. David Bradford took oath as directed by law and was admitted to practice as an attorney. He was thus the first attorney to qualify in what is now Randolph County. At Court held at Clarksburg, Va., November, 1784 Jacob Stalnaker was appointed Surveyor of Roads from Jacob Westfall's Mill to Alexander Maxwell's Old Place and to collect tithables for same. It is significant that at this early date that a farm be designated as an Old Place.
