States: Virginia: Lunenburg
You posted your query 4 years ago so you've probably had it answered by now, but if not here's what I know. Richard Harrison was my 4th great grandfather and his father was Bryant Winbush Lester, who was born in Lunenburg County, VA in 1753. His wife was Alice Hooper, born about 1750. Bryant Winbush L's father was Bryant Lester, who was born in 1730 in Montgomery, VA 9not certain of this) and his wife was Sarah Winbush, born in 1734. I'm not certain, but I think Bryant the elder's father was Thomas Lester, who came to the new world from England. Richard Harrison had several children, one of whom was my 3rd great grandfathter, German Merritt Lester (born 1812, died 1892). He was the first US marshall of the new town of Atlanta in about 1850. Hope this helps.
