About David Westwood

Find a Grave

Birth: Aug. 11, 1826 Bromsgrove Worcestershire, England

Death: Oct. 20, 1903 Oroville Butte County California, USA

David Westwood was a young man when he left England where he was born and sailed to America in 1849 with his parents and his surviving siblings. He was one of 20 (or more) children born to Joseph Westwood and Ann Webley in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England where his father worked as a nail maker. Tragically, his parents and a new-born sister all died within days of each other in St. Louis, Missouri, where they were buried on the banks of the Mississippi River in April/May of 1849. David went west to Salt Lake City, married Phoebe Ellen Bromley September 10, 1853, and became the father of seven children, the first four born in Utah, and the last three born in California. He worked as a blacksmith and gold miner, and during the Civil War served in the Union Army in California. Although he had lost contact with his siblings, he was later reunited with his sister Hannah Westwood and other family members. He lived in California for many years, in Paradise, and Oroville where he died and is buried with his wife Phoebe and several of his children at Old Oroville Cemetery.

On stone with Phoebe Bromley Westwood. Military stone next to main stone. Near stone of Willard & Margaret Westwood.
