.              Ref:  1.   Andrew Nester's book, p 107-08.  He listed Roy Lee Nester, b 26 Aug 1904, d 31 Jan 1990 as John's son, but the Roy
.                             Nester with that birth date d Dec 1983 (prob Roy, above), and the Roy with that death date was Roy James Nester, b
.                             22 Feb 1906, and he was the s/o
James Guilford Nester (#A211).  In my book I incorrectly gave Roy James Nester's
.                             birth date as 22 Feb 1908, and I incorrectly gave Roy Nester, above, s/o John Lawrence Nester, as Roy J. Nester, b 23
.                             Feb 1908, d 31 Jan 1990, confusing him with James Guilford Nester's son Roy.  I also omitted Mary Elizabeth, who was
.                             Mary,7 Miss in the 1930 census.
