John A. Westcott, of Nicholas Westcott III, Descendants of Stukely Westcott

In 1975, I became very interested in my family history. After a little research, my grandmother Dorothy Wescott told me I should contact Eula Connelly, my grandfather Vernon’s first cousin. Eula shared the crucial foundation information I needed about our our Wescott ancestors, and propelled me headlong into this project. As a result, this page is dedicated to the memory of Eula May (Wescott) Connelly. Eula was my first cousin twice removed.

In December of 2001, my son bought me the domain for a Christmas present, and I was able to post my family tree on the Internet, for all the world to see. It has proven to be invaluable in my research: no less than six ‘new’ cousins have found it, contacted me and provided new information about themselves and other family members. 

 I want these pages to be accurate and complete.  If you see something incorrect or have anything to add, please e-mail me at
