This book is divided into four sections. The first section is just brief general genealogy information, self-explanatory.
The second section is my working theory of the early Leister/Lasater families of Jamestown, Virginia.
This section covers the first ten generations. All of the children are listed for each generation but
only my direct ancestors are carried into the next generation. I have a lot of information for the other
children, but just not used for this book. There are a lot of sources and notes for the earlier generations.
The ten generations are; George, Thomas, Robert, Thomas, William L., William L., William
J., William, William B., and James. I did not change any of the misspelled words in this section,
they are written just as they were transcribed from the original documents.
The third section is the largest section that starts with the 10th generation and stops with the 17th
generation of Lasaterís. It follows all of the descendants of James Gatterson Lasater and Minnie
Frances Hinesley Lasater. It has a short story about each person where information was available. It
has family photos, death records, marriage records, World War I Draft Registration Cards, newspaper
articles, maps and other documents.
The fourth section is self-explanatory also. It has copies of various records of the family, including
Revolutionary War records, other military records, wills, land plats, marriages, newspaper articles,
gravestones, and other documents. It also lists the source and references information.
