Eastern redbud is native in WV. It prefers slightly alkaline soils but also grows in the more acidic New England area. The seeds need pre-treatment to germinate. The technic and plant care is discussed here: https://plants.usda.gov/factsheet/pdf/fs_ceca4.pdf
There are YouTube videos on stratification.
