I am attempting to determine the degree of possibility that 'Lester' is a derivation of the surnames 'McLeaster' and/or 'McLeister'.

My 2XGreat grandfather - John Lester - seems to have no treaceable history and it is believed by some family research that he may have changed the spelling of his surname for one reason or another.
John was born about 1820 in North Carolina, emigrated to Indiana with his with wife - Lucinda Keller (another untraceable one) - then on to Texas/Missouri/Oklahoma.
Your response and guidance will be greatly appreciated.
Kenneth A. Lester
