Thanks for the hint, Valerie. I've been working at the LDS library and the state library as well as online, so I may run across something, yet. I just can't get to those places every day, and there has to be a family Bible out there somewhere!
So far, my early Jesters are from James City County, Virginia, specifically Jamestown and Williamsburg, but they could have come here from Delaware and/or Maryland. I just don't know.
I know Selina Odell Dunnevant was living with Henry and Lucy Smith in 1850 when she was 10 years old. Since those aren't her parents, I'm not sure why she was living with them. By 1860 her "sister," Ann E. Smith (age 16) was living with Selina, her husband John Y. Jester, and their son, James H. Jester. By 1870, Ann Smith (who may have gone by Elizabeth) was gone, but Charles W. Smith (age 19) was living with Selina, John Y. and their children James H., Sousetta or Louretta, John Thomas, William Young, and Selina. (Anna E. Jester would be born abt. 1872.)
