.
.        "Bill"
.          Daniel Nester of Logan Co, Va (WVa) was recorded as a possible s/o
Daniel Nester (#G) of Floyd/Carroll Co, Va in previous
.          editions of my book and is currently listed on many websites as such.  However strong family traditions by many of his descend-
.          ants are consistent with Daniel being the son of an orphaned Nester girl and an Indian boy, both of whom were raised by Moses
.          Brown of Logan Co.  The Indian boy took the name of John when young and the name Nester after marrying the Nester girl.  They
.          moved to Ohio, and left Daniel with Moses Brown, with whom he was living in 1850.
