John J. Lester (1807 N.Y.) and Ann Harrington (1813 N.Y.)who apparently migrated with their family to Allen County in the late 1850s from Medina County, Ohio.
Maria Tryphena Lester (1836 OH) married Emery O. Pool/Poole (1831 N.Y.) either in Medina or Fort Wayne.Emery remarried after his wife's death in 1890, but Maria and their son, Frank H. Pool/Poole (born 1858-1924 IN) are buried in Lindenwood Cemetery.
Sarah Jane Lester (1842 OH) married Barnum W. Chapman (1827 N.Y.) in Allen County on 6/4/1864.Their children: Flora E. (Chapman) Griffith (born 1865); Minnie Chapman (Mrs. John) Engel (born 1867); Nellie Chapman (Mrs. W.J.T.) Davis; Harry James Chapman, born 1870 (wife: Ella Storrs); and Anna Chapman (Mrs. C.J.) McKellar, born 1878.
In 1881 some family member migrated to Detroit MI and others to Ohio locations.
Levina A. (1846 OH)(we presume our Augusta)Lester married John W. Moore in Indiana.Their children: John, William, Harry, Frank, Rebecca, Minnie.All born between 1867-1880.In 1860 Augusta was living with her sister Esther and husband Jonathan B. Morgan in Fort Wayne.
James H. Lester, the only son of John Lester and Anna Harrington was born about 1853 in Ohio and would have also moved to Fort Wayne.When his mother died in 1893 he was said to be in the Indianapolis area.
Also as a sidenote, it is possible that two other Lester couples might belong to this family:
Emma Lester and Sylvester Wilmot married in Allen County on February 26, 1863; and Emily Lester married Joseph Obra in Allen County on April 11, 1871.
