I don't know the name of the Mrs.Estes who lived in Lexington Mo. when I was a kid. I just knew her as "Mrs.Estes",an elderly lady, and she had a goiter on her neck and in the winter her water pipes would freeze and my daddy would go and thaw them for her. I remember where she lived,on the east end of town,but doubt the old house is still there.
As for the Ida Estes,I never met her.I just read in my material about my ancestor William John Burns that some said his birthdate was 1796 but according to Ida Estes Bible he was born in 1806.It doesn't say who this Ida Estes was,though. He lived in the Benton-Camden county areas of Mo.
That is all I know about the Estes family. I don't know of any relationship between them and my Burns family other than maybe friends or neighbors maybe. Sorry I couldn't be more help.Pat
