Going by given names, I am wondering about a connection here with my Miami County family. Rebecca (_________) Wyatt Strayer, who died in Union Twp. in 1863 at age 48 (or maybe 45), left no clues as to her maiden name in the names of her children, but her daughter Margaret (Strayer) Hufford (b. 1845) had a son Lester (b. 1883) and a daughter Maud. Another daughter, Wreatha, thought that "Lester" was a family name from further back. Obviously this is extremely tenuous, but I'm interested to know whether you might in your Lester materials a Rebecca born about 1814 or 1817 "near the Natural Bridge, Va." (per her tombstone) who moved off to Indiana by 1835 (probable first marriage date going by the birthdate of her oldest child Phebe Wyatt).
