Russel,
My wife is a ggggg daughter of the Abraham Hester( 1750-1846) you speak of.He married Sarah Ann Carwell and had the following children...Alfred 1789,Carwell 1796,Charles 1799,Henry 1811,Sarah Ann 1813,and possibly more. He is buried at the Oolenoy Baptist Church Cemetary in Pickens County, SC.We do not know of a will but have records of his Revolutionary war service and pension info.My wife was of the Alfred Hester son's line.

My records indicate his father was Robert Hester and his mother Barbara Cooke and they were from Louisa County, Va.Their children were:Abraham,Sarah,James,Nathan,Charles,Samuel,Agnes,Barbara,Anne,Susannah,Mary,Francis,and Elizabeth.

There ia a Hester family website where you will find the Will of Robert Hester..www.hesterfamily.com/records/wills/robvawill.htm
