Your line of Kestersons goes back as far as we can go with any Kesterson.Your particular branch did not settle anytime or anyplace in KY that I know of.Here is your line backwards from Arlo Lyle: Andrew Jackson Kesterson 1858-1901 IA m Mary Alberta Brunham Solomon Thomas Kesterson 1833 IN - 1913 IA m Sarah Emma Rains William Thomas Kesterson 1808 VA - 1885 IA m Hannah M Ulred Sylvester Welch Kesterson 1785 VA - abt 1866 TN m Elizabeth Johnson John Kesterson 1742 VA - 1825 OH m Elizabeth Whitman John Kesterson 1712 - 1750 VA m ? George Kesterson 1674 - 1733 VA m Aquilla Fry Thomas Kesterson 1648 England - d 1720 VA..
Everything is documented on this line and the only WEAK link - is John Kesterson 1742 VA - 1825 OH m Elizabeh WHitman.We know for a fact that Sylvester was the son of John Kesterson as proved by John's will but its not written in cement that he was the one who married Elizabeth Whitman or that he was the son of John 1712-1750.There are no other explanations at this time that it could be otherwise but I leave that option open..
Please get in touch with - Christine Walterschrisw1940@hotmail.com and visit my websites - I'd like to add you and your information to it and would be anxious to hear what else you have on this line.
My line of Kesterson was in Kentucky - that would be George Kesterson Sr b about 1765 VA d 1846 Caldwell KY.Married Lettice Baker.He had some 14 children.George was a descendant of the Greene Co TN group (still need to be proved).His father William was a brother to the John mentioned above (so we think).
Nothing can be taken for granted but I have put the family together as best we can with what is available.I know that at some point more information will turn up to either confirm or deny some of it..
