RE: Hesters
It is very possible you and my husband are connected as he is kin to the Fergusons at Centre and areas of Cherokee co. His Uncle John Ferguson lived there. I know they are in w/the Peeks, Tuckers, Steeds and many more. He does not do on f a g like I do tho he is registered on f a g... put in Richard Ferguson and his page will come up. He will gladly share any info he has on his Fergusons. We have made 4 trips to Chester, S.C. doing Ferguson research. We lived in Centre several yrs. until our grandchildren came along and we moved back home to Anniston to be near them. Richard's email is We both are retired and at home most days. We work on genealogy everyday!! So interesting and addicting. You can email and he can give phone # or you send your phone # and he'll be glad to talk on the phone w/you about them.

I hope you don't mind, but I've added a few pictures for some of the Hesters you had listed in Bethel Cemetery (Forney), Alabama. I was there taking some of the cemetery and took a lot of random photos.
