I did not find his obit, but. Ephraim Benoni Kester married Carrie Amelia Kibler on Mar. 14, 1917. His birth was Oct. 1847 in Vigo County, Father was John from Ky. He states this is his 4th marriage and all of his previous marriages ended by death of mate. His mother was from N.C. and name looked like Trueblood.
I found them on the 1920 census in Harrison TWP, Vigo Co. he was listed as 72, wife Carrie was 49. There were a couple of obits for Ephraim Kester but no "B". You can get the marriage certificate on line free at the Vigo Public Library. you can also check the obits there.
