Leahl Lyon Bester
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 9, 1850
Warren
Trumbull County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jan. 17, 1924
Fairfield
Jefferson County
Iowa, USA

Note: her obituary gives the names of her parents as "E.G. and Margaret G Lyon". While her mother's first name was Margaret, it isn't clear if the name of her father and the middle initial of her mother were typos. Her mother's husband's name has been found sourced as Andrew or Abert, and her mother's middle initial on her headstone and death record is "J".

Her name on her headstone is "Leahl Bester", but her obituary has the first name as "Leanna". Sigh.

Wife of Adolph Bester, who died Nov. 2, 1903.
