Hi James, I have considerable information on your "Tennessee" Ivesters.Your gg-grandfather, Jackson Alexander Ivester; was married first to Laura Hagler in Bradley County, TN. They had 3 children, Beulah, Jesse Park, and Alice A. After Laura's death Jackson married Emma Carrie Hughes. Their children were your great grandmother, Pearl Mae, and Jackson Alexander, Ivester, Jr.
Jackson, Sr was killed in an explosion in the Nelson Mine in Dayton, Rhea County, TN on 20 Dec 1895. He is buried in the French Cemetery on Sawyers Hill in Dayton.
Beulah Ivester married John L. Stansbury; they moved to Jefferson County, AL where John worked as a miner. John had 4 brothers killed in the mine there on 5 May 1910. John would have been a casualty had he not taken ill that day.Jesse Park Ivester married Bertha Vandergeeten, They lived in Russellville, Pope County, AR. Park also worked as a miner there. I have only birth info for Alice A. Ivester. Pearl Mae you have mentioned, and the last child Jackson Alexander Ivester, Jr. married Sophia Elizabeth Helton. Many of his descendants live in Hamilton County, TN. If you want more details including their descendants, I can send them to you as an attachment via e-mail.
