. author: Michael D. Nestor, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
242 Andrew Anthony Nester,4 ? 24 (Christian,3,Andrew,2,Frederick,1)
. Andrew was prob a s/o Christian Nester, but no proof, even though acc to the census' Christian had no sons born before 1810.
. It's possible that the census' could be in error. Some have claimed that he was a s/o Christian's brother Daniel, but all of Daniel's
. sons born before 1820 are accounted for. The info at www.findagrave.com may simply be a copying of the information in my
. published genealogies, and not a confirmation of Andrew Anthony Nester's parentage.
