. Catherine Nester, b 3 Feb 1862, d 13 Jul 1896, bur Most Blessed Sacrament Cem, Bally, Washington Twp, Berks Co. One
. source said she m William M. Adam/Adams. This came from trees.ancestry.com, owner William Beers. This is an error, since
. the Catherine who married William Adams was living in Northampton Co, Pa in 1900 and d 1946, and had m(1) Willoughby
. Nester (#P1). One source said she was Catherine Helferich (Kate) Nester, d/o Nicholas Helferich. Kate Nester, d/o Nicholas
. and Mary, m 11 Feb 1888 Berks Co to William M. Adam, s/o John and Magdalena Adam.
. She could have been the widow of George Washington Nester (#2214), b 1861, d 1882, who had wife "Hettie", age 16, in
. the 1880 census. "Hettie" not located in the 1900 census.
. There was a Catherine Helfrich,8 Pa, d/o Peter and Charlotte Helfrich in the 1870 Berks Co census, and she was Kate,18 Pa,
. in the 1880 census with this family. Otherwise Catherine/Kate Helfrich isn't located in the 1870 or 1880 census. Daniel
. Nester (Daniel E. Nester (#2213)) was living with this family in 1880, and perhaps Catherine was briefly married to him,
. but this would be highly unlikely, to have married her between the census, dated 11 Jun 1880, and his marriage to Mary Hel-
. frich 2 days later.
. Nicholas Helfrich, b 1850, was Peter's brother and had a dau Katie, b Dec 1881, and this Nicholas couldn't be Catherine
. Helfreich Nester's father.
. No current evidence that the following has a Pennsylvania connection:
. Margaret A. Nester, b 12 Jul 1789, d 10 Jul 1868, bur Davis Cem, Knox Co, Mo. See picture of her tombstone below.
. Not located in 1850 or 1860, but there was a Rebecca Nester,62 Pa, in Knox Co in 1850, so this may actually be Rebecca, who
. was b ca 1788-90 Pa, and was prob the widow of John Nester (#23).
