Let me know when you find your information and we will compare notes. I am a descendant of William Willis Jestes (son of Joseph b about 1813, and grandson of John Jestes b about 1774). Each year Jestes descendants get together to decorate the graves of our ancesters and have a pot luck meal (always the 4th Saturday in June). We have it at the Jestes Graveyard located between Banner Elk and Boone, NC which rests right at the base of the Grandfather Mountain (an absolutely beautiful spot). There are also a lot of descendants from the McClurd family there. I have about 50 Jestes names in my database. Hope we can share information.
