The Ivesters in my lineage hail from the Anderson, SC area.Here is a brief sketch of a few of them that I have (admittedly skant) documentation on.My website http://members.aol.com/jaacker/http://members.aol.com/jaacker/ gives a bit more detail.
In the late 1800's my direct ancestor Laura Acker married George Ivester. They had at least two children: Carrie and Willie Ivester.
Carrie married GEORGE MATTISON, II.They had at least five children: GEORGE MATTISON, III; JOE MATTISON; OWEN MATTISON; DOROTHY MATTISON; and EVELYN MATTISON.
Willie married ESSIE MASON and they had a daugther, JOSIE IVESTER who married EUGENE BUTLER, Sr.
I am looking to round out my research.I have a bit more but have not posted it to my website yet.
Please don't be put off by the spelling of the IVESTER surname on my site as IVESTOR.I know better now. :o)
