J Daniel Nester,2 (..?..John,1)
. Strong family traditions by many of his descendants 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.
