Based on the Shinnston, WVa reference, your grandfather Carl Nester, b 1928, would probably be a descendant of Jacob Nester, b 1761, d 1844, whose family was outlined in the book "Descendants of Jacob Nester, 1761-1844" by Carl Kenneth Nestor. I have a copy of the book. This Jacob Nester lived in Randolph Co, Va (WVa), and his descendants lived in Randolph Co, Tucker Co, Barbour Co, Harrison Co, Taylor Co, and that area of WVa.
If you can give more info on your grandfather, such as his wife's name, and his father's name, and your father and mother's names, I could recheck the book. I checked already, but there were many Carl's, and some without birthdates given. One of those may be your grandfather.
I am not descended from the above Jacob, but from another Jacob Nester, b 1766, of Montgomery Co, Va.
