Bon Jellico Families

The Ovie West Family
By Dorothy Stout


    Ovie G. West was the son of Ervin and Letha West of Beck’s Creek. He married Della Richardson who was the daughter of Thomas and Eliza Richardson of Verne, Kentucky. Ovie and Della had two daughters: Dorothy and Nan. Both were born at Bon Jellico. Nan died in 1971.

    Ovie ran the power house at Bon at two different times. They moved to Williamsburg in 1919 and the girls went to the Williamsburg City School. They moved back to Bon when the girls were in high school.

    Dorothy met Tom Stout at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Copeland at a young peoples’ fellowship. They were married in 1931. Dorothy and Tom had six children: Billy, Morris, Jim, Freda, Doris, and Wayne.
