Lewis Keister / Keaster in Williamson IL & Kester / Kister / Kesler in KY
Posted by: Peggy W (ID *****1126) Date: June 20, 2004 at 14:07:59

Has anyone explored the possibility that the father of Abraham, Permelia Eva, Lewis Jr. and George KEISTER / KEASTER found in Williamson Co., IL during the mid-1800's is the Lewis KESTER / KISTER / KESLER found in KY 1800-1820?

Early Kentucky Landholders 1787-1811 lists:
KESTER, Lewis 6/30/1800
KASTER, Lewis 7/9/1801
KISTER, Lewis 8/17/1802
KISTER, Lewis 5/30/1803 Washington Co
KISTER, Lewis 7/27/1804 Washington Co
KISTER, Lewis 7/25/1805 Washington Co
KISTER, Lewis 7/15/1806 Washington Co

There's a Lewis KESTER on the 1800 census for Lincoln Co., KY, a Lewis KISTER on the 1810 Jefferson Co., KY and a Lewis KESLER on the 1820 Shelby Co., KY.

In 1810 there are 3 boys & 3 girls all under the age of ten. That would fit with the childred I know about.

Any help greatly appreciated.
