Subject: [IVESTER] My family tree
Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2006 10:19:46 -0500
Myself, Karen Christine (Ivester) O'Daire
Henry Edward and Helen E. (Dover) Ivester
Julian Eugene and Beulah (Shirley) Ivester
William Henry (born 1784) and Amanda (VanDiver) Ivester
??? and Melvina Ivester
My father (Henry Edward Ivester) was born in Clarksville, GA (one of 12
children!!!) and that is pretty close to where his entire family is.
Their home was near the family church: Shirley Grove Baptist Church.
Story is that no one knows who the father of William Henry was. We're
all pretty sure our grandma (Beulah Shirley Ivester) knew, but she
wouldn't tell. So, we asked my grandfather's sister and she wouldn't
tell either. Both are deceased now and the secret is with them. Any one
out there know anything?
