B    Frederick Nester,4                                                                                                      11   (Jacob,3,Frederick,2,Frederick,1)
.
.          b 10 Nov 1797 Montgomery Co, Va; d 20 Sep 1882 Linn Co, Mo, bur Nester Chapel Cem, "aged 84".
.             His tombstone ("Fredrick" see
picture below), gives his birth year as 1797, but the census records give a range of 1791- 94.  His
.             widow's pension application says he was 16 when he enlisted in Jul 1814, which is consistent with his being born in Nov 1797.
.          m 25 Jan 1816 White Co, Tenn to his first cousin Sarah Ann Goad (Sallie), b 1801 Va, d 25 Mar 1888, bur Nester Chael, d/o

.                   Mo (granddau, Ind,Mo), deaf and dumb, Joseph Abbott,17 Mo (grandson, Mo,Mo).
.          1883, 13 Feb: Sarah applied for a widow's pension, stating that Frederick was about age 16 when he enlisted, and was 5 ft 10 inches
.                    tall, blue eyed, and light complected.  She said they lived in White Co and Campbell Co's, Tenn, and moved to Mo in 1837 or
.                    38, first to Howard Co, and then to Linn Co.
.          1889, 1 Apr: Linn Co: Indenture: Leland Nester of Tulare Co, Calvin Nester and wife Nancy, C.B. Bray and wife Malinda, and Sarah
.                    E. Lowe conveyed their interest as "children and grandchild" in Frederick Nester's estate to Jefferson D. Nester for $235.
.                    This was the NW quarter and W 1/12 of NE quarter of Section No 4 in Twp #59 of Range #18.
.          1921 Affadavit by Frederick's grandson George W. Nester (s/o Calvin) states that Frederick had "Ten children" and later in the
.                   document that the mother of Jacob Allen was "one of the original Ten heirs".  Even if Anliza is a d/o Jacob, that leaves 11
.                   children for Frederick, unless another of the ones below, besides Anliza, is also not a child of Frederick.  A detailed list of
.                   Frederick's living and deceased heirs (excluding Anliza and her 3 Allen sons), as of 1882, shows that there were 5 living
.                   children, 6 deceased children, and 17 living children of his deceased children, and the 3 Allen heirs, making 25 living heirs in
.                   1882.  Therefore George W. Nester's affadavit in 1921 was in error.  Either the statement "Ten children" is in error, or the
.                   statement "one of the original Ten heirs" for Jacob Allen's mother is in error.  The latter is so far off, that it probably should
.                   be "original Ten children", but if so, Anliza is then claimed by George to be Frederick's dau, if one takes these statements
.                   literally.  More likely the purpose of the affadavit was for George to secure absolute title to his property, and not to outline
.                   Frederick's heirs, and he was accounting for the last heir, Jacob Allen, stating that he had died.  The legal loophole in George's
.                   claim is that he probably didn't know if Jacob Allen left any heirs, who would then also have a claim to Frederick's estate.
.                   This affadavit and my list of Frederick's 1882 heirs is on the page for
Anliza Nester (#B11) and on another page for Fred-
.                   erick, along with a more detailed
discussion of his heirs.
