The West Family (John West, Linda West Dickson, Shirley Sorge Blue, Norma West and Bill West)

John West, Linda West Dickson, Shirley Sorge Blue, Norma West and Bill West (pictured here in 2017) are descendants of two brothers who emigrated from Calabria the late 1800s. James and Santo Alfano settled in Washington, PA, when the railroad company they worked for ran out of money here. The brothers found work opportunities in Washington and decided to stay.
