Hi Kay, your Jessie S. Ivester born Jan. 25, 1878 is the son of Richard R. Ivester and Rachel Shirley Ivester. Richard is son of George Ivester, who is son of Peter Ivester, who is son of George Ivester, who is son of Hugh Ivester. I've written a book, well-documented and with over 60 pages of photos, on Hugh andhis descendents. Richard is remembered in my husband's family as his great-uncle, and the father of many sons. They are all in my book. Let me hear from you.
