Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the daughter of Harold and Janet (Overhiser) Roe, born in South Haven, Van Buren County, Michigan in 1957. I lived in the Bangor/South Haven area until shortly after I was 21 years old and moved away, ending up in Sheboygan County, WI. I was married in 1978, at the Trinity Lutheran Church, in Paw Paw Van Buren County, Michigan to Dana A. Kester. We have two sons, T.J. born July 1978 South Haven, Van Buren County, Michigan, and Terry born May 1982 Plymouth, Sheboygan County, WI. After 35 years in Wisconsin, we moved back "home" to Van Buren COunty, MI.

I began doing genealogy about 1984, and it has been a love affair ever since! New finds with genealogy gives me such a rush! I started working on my husbands family, and with my mother in laws, cousin's wife, we have made some phenomial finds. My family lines, I have found some new information, and have in my possession a family bible, from 1808, that was nearly sold for drugs!

I'd love to compare notes with anyone that might want to.

Kim (Roe) Kester

Hi Kim,
We've been in touch before, but it's been a long time. I would like permission to use the photo of Stephen and Ada Roe for my genealogy. Ada is related to me on her father's side of the family. She would be a cousin to my grandmother. Hope all goes well with you.

Dear Kim,I was wondering if I could get copies of the photo's that is on Dales FindaGrave memorial page to put in my family tree book. My son's Matthew and David Artis are cousins of Ann Wahmhoff-Roe-Clayton. And it would be nice to put those pictures in my tree for them to see who he was. If it is possible please contact me at

Thank you again,
Devi Zecklin-Davis

Stephen Clark Roe
Dear Kim,

While researching my family, I found the flowers you left for Stephen Clark Roe. He is my maternal grandmother's grandfather. I'm looking for any information on the family I can find. Particularly, I'm researching the female lineage, so I'm interested in Ada Slentz. Any information you can share would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
