Bessie Laster was the daughter of David Lawson Laster and Philinda Blake, his first wife. There were 2 children from that marriage, Elvey and Bessie. David was married 3 times. His second wife was Beatrice Carneal (2 sons). His 3rd wife was Juanita McGehee (3 sons and 3 daughters).
The Lasters and McGehees intermarried a fair amount.

Dave's dad and mom were Solomon Laster and Ellen Slaughter. Solomon came from Tennessee to Todd County just after the Civil War. The Slaughter's had a pretty good size farm in Todd County at the time.

I am not descended from Dave, but rather from his younger brother Jim. I do have more information on the family though if you are interested.
